Thou shalt never badmouth a competitor
„Management guru” Tom Peters on badmouthing one’s competitor:
I think that when one badmouths one’s competitors or tries to limit their activities, the „word gets around.” And one develops a reputation as prickly and egocentricand, well, as a selfish jerk.
Now, I completely agree with Mr. Peters, but what he keeps out of his little blog is the question „how do you deal with being badmouthed by a competitor? THAT is the really interesting question – IMHO.
