How SurveyMonkey Is Coping After the Death of Dave Goldberg - The New York Times
By QUENTIN HARDY JUNE 21, 2015.

SurveyMonkey’s top executives have had to avoid “strategic paralysis from a culture of mourning, and emotional revolt from telling people ‘get over it,’ ” said Jeffrey A. Sonnenfeld, a professor at the Yale School of Management. “There is a way to take a loss and make it into strength.”

SurveyMonkey was started in 1999 and remained small for a decade, offering online and email surveys on various topics. In 2009, private equity investors acquired it, and Mr. Goldberg, who had sold a small music company to Yahoo for $12 million in 2001, was brought in soon after to run the company. Starting with just 14 employees, Mr. Goldberg began his recruiting.
