Peter Oliver successfully made the climb from salesperson to sales leader, eventually managing an area responsible for growing a software business to the $250 million levels.

Today, he is a sought-after coach and management consultant helping organizations recruit, assess, hire, train, coach, and manage world-class leaders and sales teams who impact direction and results.

When he’s not visiting clients, cooking, or looking you up on LinkedIn, he’s loving life in Hawaii with his wife and two daughters.


“If I had a time machine, I would go back and give this book to my younger self. It's that good. If you only have time to read one book on leadership, read Peter Oliver's book.”
