True Leaders Believe Dissent Is an Obligation

the best leaders I’ve studied — executives and entrepreneurs who have created enduring economic value based on sound human values — recognize and embrace the “obligation to dissent.” Put simply, you can’t be an effective leader in business, politics, or society unless you encourage those around you to speak their minds, to bring attention to hypocrisy and misbehavior, and to be as direct and strong-willed in their evaluations of you as you are in your strategies and plans for them.

Interesting analysis of what it takes for a brand to become a thought leader. And how your content strategy might still be successful at generating leads without necessarily focusing on that.
Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, April 8, 2014 9:44 PM

If it's not then you're probably better off focusing your content strategy on generating leads and direct returns. 


And it's ok by the way.

The Fish Firm's curator insight, September 14, 2013 12:12 PM

The internet has radically changed the relationship between customers and businesses. This has forced especially small businesses into a new space where ‘business as usual’ must be done differently in order to get discovered, connect with customers and run effective promotions.

As we’ve been visiting with small businesses, we’ve found that most are using social media to connect with customers. But at the same time, most are unaware of the power online communities, that include a combination of Social, Local and Mobile media, can play in today's consumer’s purchase decisions.

This stat proves this to be true: "Peer recommendations drive sales. 70% of consumer said they were influenced by a friend or family member’s online recommendation, beating out in-person recommendation (61%), online articles (59%), ads (49%), or someone they follow online but don’t know (32%)"
