Tribes by Seth Godin is the best book I've read on the subject. A very short, a but perspective-changing read.

I can highly recommend this course from Harvard Business Manager: https://online.hbs.edu/courses/m... it is honestly not cheap, but it's super hands on while it goes very in depths. very good material to read. Great for new managers or a refresher on best practices. I can also recommend just to read the Harvard Business Review: https://hbr.org/ - lots of free great articles.
