Thought leadership is a hopeful self-fulfilling prophecy. Just start leading and the thoughts will come :) Top wrtng: http://t.co/BdCmuDPo2i
Ryan Hines's insight:

Ann Friedman gives the Linked platform and its manufactured thought leadership (Influencers) a laudable dressing down. A key lesson: "you can achieve unparalleled likeability on LinkedIn’s mammoth media platform, but at the considerable cost of surrendering anything that might remotely resemble a coherent or challenging message to the LinkedIn masses."

You've been warned.

How to identify thought leaders | LinkedIn Answers

How to identify thought leaders | LinkedIn Answers | Cogitation Supremacy | Scoop.it

The question, "How do you identify thought leaders?" solicited a number of responses on LinkedIn.

 

The ensuing discussion introduces a slew of other questions--at least in my mind--because I find the definitions I've encountered thus far to be lacking.

 

Here are just a few.

 

A thought leader:

1. Is a company or a person? 

2. Has the ability to do or the ability to convey?

3. Is characterized by inherent traits or external recognition?

 

These oversimplify the topic just a bit, so the answers likely fall in the middle ground. More to come.
