Mitch Joel on his blog had interesting post on Thought Leaders. This is an excerpt from the post…
Who really is a thought leader?
Pushing beyond semantics, a thought leader is someone who is sharing…their own unique perspective. That would be the “thought” component of the equation. A thought leader is someone whose unique perspective is seen and accredited by both peers or other industry experts as truly being visionary…Leadership isn’t just about being first. Leadership is about how the thinking is ingested and used by the audience…Thought leadership is sharing the vision, having the vision being accepted by the industry at large and having that vision become a part of the DNA and how that industry moves forward.
Given this description who are the real ‘Thought Leaders’ in Pauline scholarship?
