I read Radical Candor by Kim Scott. This book is about building relationships with your employees and providing guidance to deliver better results.
Here is the core concept:
Bosses guide a team to achieve results. Focus on building relationships with your direct reports, which will affect your team's culture and determine the quality of everything that follows. Two dimensions for developing trust: care personally and challenge directly. Caring personally is about acknowledging we are all people with lives and aspirations beyond our shared work and finding time to get to know each other on a human level. Challenging others and encouraging them to challenge you shows that you care about what is and is not going well, and that you're committed to fixing mistakes that you or others have made. These strategies need to adapt to cultural differences between individuals, teams, companies, and countries.
