    Thanks for sharing, Larry! We at http://www.ProseMedia.com see the value in the idea of thought leadership. It’s so important to develop an original voice and to create original content, especially with all of the content on the web these days. You give some great ideas. Nice post.

    Nice post Larry. I like your points about thought leadership which becomes obvious in the first few sentences of any article/post. It is one thing to be an individual leader that people follow because of industry knowledge and it is another thing to be the spokesperson that represents a company. In the later, the company is what matters and the voice is there to animate their beliefs and offerings. In this case the customer ultimately follows a brand that needs to integrate thought leadership.

    That said, many companies do not have the time or resources to give content the time and attention it takes to have successful and compelling campaigns. It is a good idea to outsource to companies like Opentopic that offer high quality content curation for marketing. Opentopic is very much in tune with thought leadership.

    I really enjoyed your post Larry. There is an industry teaching people how to become millionaires by becoming thought leaders as if it is something that you can acquire overnight. For the majority of people it takes years to build up a reputation and credibility. Writing a book that adds nothing to the discussion and shouting about it doesn’t make you a thought leader. Nice to hear a real thought leader pointing this out. Big Hugs :~D
