Results over Activity? Results win
I really like this book. It was mainly about transforming upper management on down to focus more on results vs activity. You can ruin a great sales culture by micromanaging activity. instead you should cultivate your talent and provide them with tools that will increase their results and remove non sales activities from their duties. 80% of the book is really calling out the accountability of upper management and the ineffectiveness of Salesforce and other CRM's. Companies need to get back to focusing on the art of selling and coach in person and not through emails. 20% was on solutions. I would like to see a more 60/40 split but I know that could be difficult because every company is different. Every leader should have this book

One of the best books I've ever read - I'm moving into sales management soon (currently technical sales) and honestly I feel like this book has prepared me so much more than I expected.
It's full of great advice, with no punches pulled and no mincing of words. Weinberg clearly knows his craft - and it doesn't feel like one big self-promotion like so many of these books tend to.
Also heaps of excellent advice for salespeople in general. I'll be listening to this again many times over, I expect.
