The Ultimate Sales Machines (Portfolio, 2008)
This is a must read for anyone in a leadership position. It covers a wide range of topics, from running effective meetings, to personal productivity tips, to marketing, to hiring superstars. Every chapter is different and filled with practical advice. I recommend reading it more than once. Although it’s a book about sales, the author doesn’t spend chapter after chapter with typical sales tactics. Rather, he provides advice and easy to implement ideas for running an engaged and productive company which ultimately increases sales. Holmes does include two chapters that directly cover sales that are also interesting and valuable.
