013: Being Seen As A Leader with Jane Anderson

Although thought leadership has been around for quite some time, not many people can completely decipher what it is and how best to utilize it. A thought leader uses his/her expertise to offer unique guidance, influence others, and inspire innovation.

 Thought leadership can sometimes have more return on investments than any other marketing strategy. This is because thought leadership changes your company’s brand perception and potential customers start seeing you for the industry specialist you genuinely are.

In an age when a person with a large enough following on LinkedIn can be deemed a thought leader, it’s crucial to understand the precise definition of who a thought leader is.

 This is one of those episodes you can’t afford to miss. We unravel the charismatic world of thought leadership, when to use it, and develop the right balance between experience, skill, authenticity, and talent in today’s leadership demands.
