Three easy steps to become a thought leader:
- Have a thought. You can’t be a thought leader without a thought. Have a point of view about everything, be opinionated.
- Share your thought. It’s all very good to have a thought but it is quite useless unless you share it. To be a leader assumes you have followers. You can’t have followers if no one knows what your thoughts are. It’s easy to share. Share more at workplace, be a node of reference, start a blog, don’t pass on an opportunity to present, be available, be visible.
- Make sense. It is good to have a thought and to share it with others. But ultimately it needs to make sense and resonate with others. Otherwise you are just opinionated. This is the toughest part of being a thought leader.
So there you go… becoming a thought leader in three easy steps.
