By listing 21 definitions from 21 different sources and featuring the Dalai Lama, this blog post embodies a quote from his holiness. Was it intentional?
One major oversight: a greater variety of viewpoints would have made the list of definitions spicier.
Some people view thought leadership as mere corporate doublespeak--that simply using the phrase 'thought leadership' signals a lack of creativity that precludes the speaker from conveying leader-y thoughts. This contrarian view merits inclusion. Conflicting views incite debate that leads to discussion (people verbalizing thoughts at one another) and perhaps even new views.
One minor oversight: Dalai Lama headshot, but no Dalai Lama quote?
Perhaps it was to illustrate this actual Dalai Lama quote: "Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent."
