21 Rules for Being a Better Thought Leader

21 Rules for Being a Better Thought Leader

Ease up on the allegories. If you’re going to critique something, call out real names and companies. Don’t create your own buzzwords. Hashtag responsibly. Limit yourself to two goofy headshots on your website. Think really, really hard before you launch a new podcast. Don’t post your personal phone number online and ask people to text you. Only ask your followers questions if you actually care about their answers. Write your own blog posts. Be honest about whether you’re really a bestselling author.
