Format: Hardcover
Apparently Jeffrey Fox agrees with Susan Scott (author of Fierce Conversations and then Fierce Leadership) that the word "fierce" has positive as well as negative synonyms, such as robust, intense, strong, powerful, passionate, eager, unbridled, uncurbed, and untamed. It is important to add that, for both Scott and Fox, fierce competitors are highly-principled, play by the rules, welcome challenges, follow what Bill George characterizes as their "True North," embrace opportunities, and consider it a privilege to serve those entrusted to their care, especially customers. According to Fox, fierce organizations are defined by key people - at all levels and in all areas -- who enable their companies to compete fiercely but with principles for sales, profits, market share, and especially talent at a time when competition for them is greater than ever before.

Here are mosaics of brief excerpts to suggest the thrust of Fox's crisp thinking and the flavor of his lively writing style.

On Competitive Companies: "These companies are ethical, honest, compliant with regulations, and model citizens. They are sometimes feared and always watched by their competitors. They are loved by their customers. They are easy to do business with, but they never take it easy...The savvy, smart, well-led companies see bad times as a good time to gain market share, to out-fox the competition...aggressively pursue underserved customers, market to brand-indifferent customers and work mightily to make them brand-loyal, go after other companies' dissatisfied, angry customers, buy under-priced hard assets, build capacity, hire newly available human talent, and acquire product licenses, anxious good suppliers, undermarketed products, new wholesalers and distributors, and core relevant acquisitions.
