Being perceived as a thought leader helps you with your career. As thought leader, you attract people who are interested in your subject matter expertise. Your opinions and thoughts matter, and you change people’s perspectives and motivate them to act.
Thought leaders are deeply interested in a subject they are known for—almost to the point of obsession. They publish books or give public speeches to share their thinking but those are not the only ways. Using social media is a faster and more impactful way to demonstrate their thought leadership, especially for young leaders.
