Would you like to be a thought leader?

“There are thought leaders and thought repeaters,” said keynote speaker,  Rob “Waldo” Waldman, CSP, CPAE, retired Air Force Lt. Col.

Which one are you?

Thought leaders create original ideas, use original stories and constantly look at the world for the new and the different.

Thought repeaters read other people’s works and present them with attribution. They leave the world a better place by training groups.

Then there are thought stealers: people who use other people’s works and present them as their own.

Did he think he would not be found out?


Here’s a good Forbes article on how to become a thought leader.
