Reacting to Feedback as CEO
"Remember that people sometimes have agendas that shape their feedback. Not all feedback is “pure” or unbiased in the sense that it’s a neutral voice wanting what it perceives as best for the company. Maybe a customer is in the middle of negotiating a big contract. Maybe an employee is angry about having missed a promotion. Maybe a manager is trying to reorganize a department. There’s nothing wrong with having an agenda, but it helps to know what it is when processing feedback. Ask: is there any bigger picture item that’s shaping this feedback overall?"

Talking Competition: Methinks Thou Doth Protest Too Much.
"I think ceding builds your credibility, but you need to be careful and precise in so doing so. To take an old example, from BusinessObjects days:

Bad/sloppy: Brio is doing pretty well.
Good/careful: Brio is doing pretty well — in the USA, with companies where the end-users have a strong voice in the process, and they prioritize UI over security and administration."

The book explained many important basics of language and culture that we referred to frequently as we tried to make sense of our day-to-day experiences."

Redefining Public Relations: Are You Persuaded By 'Earned Influence'? -by @tomforemski
""I'm not persuaded by Chris Graves' argument to rebrand public relations as "earned influence." It sounds too much like PR spin and it shouldn't. ["Brand journalism" is another nonsensical PR spin on what should be plainly called corporate media.]""
