"To be a true, sustainable thought leader, you have to be willing to get out of your comfort zone and look at things differently to articulate a vision for the future."
Invoking Rodin's masterpiece "The Thinker", Carla Johnson explains how you need to get out of your comfort zone to deserve the Thought Leader moniker.
Carla states that sharing content does not make you a Thought Leader. Right, agreed. But I think the most important part of her post is to explain that being innovative is not sufficient either: you also need to be able to reach beyong the innovators. You need to know how to have an impact.
