Start with Why by Simon Sinek is really good. I also liked Leading with Gratitude by Adrian Gostick & Chester Elton.

It might be an obvious one, but How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie can't go without a mention.

Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel H. Pink is a great one.

Dare to Lead by Brene Brown

My coworker brought a puppy to work, who bit my hand. I ended up losing my temper and yelling at them. Now everyone is mad at me for blowing up at work, even though this is something I shouldn't have had to deal with in the first place!

When I ask my manager for advice about how to do something, he usually just tells me I'll "figure it out yourself." But when it comes down to it, he doesn't help me at all by doing that—he just makes me feel like an idiot. And then when I do figure it out myself and bring the answer back to him, he won't even look at it! He'll just say something like "Oh yeah, thank you," and give me another assignment.
