Based on Tim's fifth book: Dealstorming: The Secret Weapon That Can Solve Your Toughest Sales Challenges

"In research across thousands of sales managers at large B2B suppliers around the world, we found that the skill that sets the best managers apart from their peers is their ability to innovate at the deal level--to work with their sales reps to 'unstick' deals and move them forward. Dealstorming provides a practical, proven and actionable playbook for sales leaders to engage in this very activity with their teams."
Matt Dixon at CEB, co-author of The Challenger Sale
