On being a thought leader.
Been thinking all
day year about it.
Thought leaders are open thinkers. Thought leaders allow ideas to roll off their tongue, because they know that their value is that they will have the next great idea. Thought leaders are not fearful that you have the idea, they are happy that you had that great idea.
Thought leadership is not within its own shell. Thought leadership is out there, placed out there in a big way, so that everyone can see, criticize, support, make fun of, grow, borrow, steal, use, develop and capitalize on.
Thought leaders support your idea, promote you, and place you in a position of influence in order to promote your thought. Thought leaders believe in you, but they also believe in themselves so much that they will own their thought to the detriment of themselves at times. Thought leaders know they are doing the best thing.
Apple is a thought leader. Google is a thought leader.
Godin is a thought leader. Who is the next thought leader?
