David Farr loves risks. He believes that good leaders takes risks every day to succeed. Maybe that’s why he is one of the rare breed of CEOs who has held the top job for 17 years and is still going strong. He runs Emerson Electric , a $15 billion manufacturing and technology enterprise ranked 139 on the Fortune 500 list of America’s biggest companies. “I am constantly preaching that you have to take that risk,” Farr says. “You have to lean into it.
Glenn Fogel says the best leadership advice that he has ever received was from Priceline Group’s former CEO Jeff Boyd. Fogel recalls Boyd telling him, “You don’t have to try and prove how smart you are. You should listen more.” Fogel, who is now the new CEO of Priceline, confesses, “He was right. I was wrong.”Speaking to Fortune ’s Susie Gharib, Fogel says listening is critical to getting things done and getting employees to tackle new, innovative projects.
David Farr gets fired up and passionate talking about taxes. He is the CEO of Emerson Electric and also the Chairman of the National Association of Manufacturers that represents 12,000 small and large manufacturing companies in every industrial sector across the country. So it’s not surprising that he is a big advocate for tax reform and he’s lobbying hard for it. He is calling for lowering taxes and he is very optimistic that Congress will approve a tax reform plan over the next three months.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
