"Managing Humans" by Michael Lopp made a huge impression on me and my career. https://www.amazon.com/Managing-Humans-Humorous-Software-Eng...
Also, "The Phoenix Project" which IMO is a groundbreaking work on how to make IT/business more effective (and the start of the DevOps movement). https://www.amazon.com/Phoenix-Project-DevOps-Helping-Busine...
Even if you're not a manager, both books are very approachable and packed with great lessons about how improve and better work with people, teams, and business.
I'd highly recommend The Phoenix Project:
The story they've wrapped around the shift to Agile for this company was extremely entertaining and kept me coming back to read more! Plus it has some very good thought exercises to take with you to your own job :)
⬐ krschultzI didn't love this book, it was OK. It's heavily based off The Goal, and I thought that book was a bit better. I think if you have a certain dysfunction in your team AND the mandate to fix it, then The Phoenix Project is a must read. For everyone else it's kind of a waste.
Gene Kim is also one of the authors of "The Phoenix Project" which is a highly recommended read.
