Last quote by Jeffrey Sonnenfeld

I think the fear has largely dissipated unless you're a major government contractor. The idea of bullying -- that's no longer creating fear of consumer backlash. It's almost becoming a badge of honor.feedback

Jeffrey Sonnenfeld quotes

Apr 24 2017 - Trump Presidency

Consensus is not a good thing. Trump is instinctively brilliant in keeping some of that tension alive.feedback

Apr 10 2017

Sure, family businesses have role conflicts, succession struggles, and sibling rivalries. At the same time, we've welcomed multiple Bushes, Roosevelts, and Adamses in the White House without acting out the pathologies of 'All in the Family'. Family enterprises are not necessarily awful things. We've seen lots of well-run businesses with family stakes in them. We have a long history of seeing this special assistance that are people with broad portfolios. Henry Hopkins, who was a special assistant to FDR, did everything from ... lease programs ... the WPA programs.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Starbucks

I don't think it's going to be challenging at all. Kevin and I have laid out a very specific level of understanding between us in terms of role and responsibility and I'm going to respect that. The conventional wisdom is they should move on. But the conventional wisdom is often wrong if they can define a meaningful role.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Starbucks

He's got meaningful projects to work on, something he's really impassioned about.feedback

Jan 31 2017

I've been advising them to not rely on the comfort of a shield of collective action through trade associations that have been largely ineffectual, speak their own mind[s] but do it with homework and preparation, showing grassroots legitimacy. [Trump] can often deal with a counter-opinion quite well if it's based on facts and you're not insulting him and not giving him a lot of philosophy. He's very pragmatic. And that's been working out well for a lot of CEOs until this sudden sea change we've seen in the last few days.feedback

Dec 27 2016 - Ford

Trump is fundamentally a pragmatist. I think a lot of the business leaders don't understand: You don't come firing back at him with anger, come back prepared with facts. We've seen recently that the aerospace industry and Ford have done well by getting their facts together, so they're coming back with grass-roots legitimacy.feedback

Dec 27 2016 - Ford

Basically, the approach to regulation that the Trump administration is talking about is list all the regulations you have by agency, and let's figure out which ones are the least harmful to people's health, and then if they're job killing, see if we can't repeal them. That's going to lead to a lot of anger.feedback

Dec 08 2016

What Trump responds to very well – and people don't understand this about him – he responds to a different point of view anchored in some research, some facts and some grassroots legitimacy.feedback

Dec 08 2016

You don't go to President-elect Trump in a position of weakness. You don't go in there groveling. If you're going to negotiate with him, you have to have some strength behind you.feedback

Dec 08 2016

Jamie's always got his homework done. He'll have counterfacts. He'll also have grassroots support.feedback

Dec 07 2016

The business community – the Fortune 500 business community, many of our friends – they don't understand this man, he's a blank slate. Most of them didn't support him, most of them think he was a major threat to the economy ... and most of them thought that he's a great threat to our trading partners and to our diplomatic allies.feedback

Dec 07 2016

Their traditional tools of dealing with government leaders of either party are not going to work with this guy. They can't threaten back, this is somebody who loves a great threat – he loves a food fight, loves a mud fight.feedback

Oct 13 2016

They should've started this investigation years ago, certainly months ago, and the fact that they've only started their own legal investigation now stands in stark contrast to Yahoo's much better responsiveness to the governance issue under Marissa Mayer and investigating their scandals. I think that the board acted wisely and late, and I do think that John Stumpf did the right thing.feedback

Oct 13 2016

This was critical to the stock rise. He was using [the phony accounts] to head off, or at least embed deeply in, quite a number of investor calls, talking about the success of cross-selling, building this platform for the future.feedback

Sep 22 2016

Neither one of them showed there was any atonement, any ways to correct for these problems. It's pretty upsetting. In both cases there's a huge loss of trust – public health trust and financial trust.feedback

Sep 22 2016

Both of these CEOs managed to accomplish the near impossible. They managed to unify two of the most fractious congressional bodies and one of the most ideologically charged Congresses ... in our history.feedback

Jun 20 2016

The lines between activism and private equity have been blurring for a while now. This is a high profile and poignant demonstration of this.feedback
