How to Become a Thought Leader in Six Steps - Dorie Clark - The Conversation - Harvard Business Review

don't forget however, not a lot of 'thought leaders' make the bucks..

Thought leaders who EXECUTE and make it happen is key! ..


As summarised by Reuters here.

"Distinguish yourself as someone with a truly unique perspective respected inside and outside the organization. Here are three ways to do that:

1. Build your online presence. The Internet is a perfect place to start showcasing your knowledge. Post comments on blogs, write your own posts, and connect with other bloggers to create a network.

2. Win some awards. Identify awards that matter in your industry and don't be afraid to nominate yourself, or convince colleagues to do it for you.

3. Flaunt well thought-of affiliations. Your associations aren't always in your control but if you have a degree from a top school or testimonials from important people, display them prominently. Credibility by proxy is valuable."
