Not every leader can be a thought leader because being mindful and also helping the company grow in new areas are not everyone’s cup of tea. However, with time, leaders can develop their skills by doing research about their industry and company and get their team motivated to enter into new unexplored markets and help the team and company evolve to unheard heights. Thought leaders do complete research on what their employees, customers, clients understand and want additional information about their business’s products or services. They are aware of the entire strengths, weaknesses, threats, and opportunities of all the stakeholders associated with their companies.

Thought leaders are willing to listen to opinions, feedback, and even grievances in the most constructive manner. It is through their presence on various social media platforms and even presence in networking events that the company gets its brand name spread all over the industry and market. Thought leaders encourage more engagements and also look for delivering value in all their content and meetings. 

Thought leaders communicate their ideas and information in such a way that it feels inspiring and innovative to others. While small businesses may only be concerned about meeting their quarterly targets, it is the responsibility of thought leaders to think beyond the sales and revenue and come up with such exciting ideas that can take the company to the next bigger level. Thought leaders can be present in the form of entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, and even managers. All it requires is the company should be willing to spend that much time, resources, and effort in giving an opportunity to thought leaders to experiment on their ideas and build their credibility or influence within and outside the organization.

If you plan to be a thought leader, then ensure that you are accessible. If you get an invitation to talk at a college event, do not shy away from but make sure to get that time slot from your busy schedule. You can inspire thousands of youngsters to walk your path and get the required success that they are looking for in their lives. You can even create a good amount of quality content and keep posting them on your social media handles like Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter among others. Your online reputation matters the most to one and all irrespective of whether they follow you, like you or not. Do not be rigid or too pridey and be willing to associate with other influences in and outside your expert domain.

Express your real self as it is without much tadka and mirch-masala. So, if you have a degree from Mumbai University, share it with others even if they flaunt a degree from foreign universities. No educational institution is big or small, all you need to show how much you have learned from whatever circumstances you were put into during your academic years. Be humble and also generous when it comes to helping others.
