Many individuals and organizations stumble into #thoughtleadership.
Often, it’s not a planned effort. 😵💫
Maybe an employee is asked to speak at a #conference 🎙️ or write an #article 📃;
they decide to post on LinkedIn or create a video; 🎥
or they become a #podcast guest (or host). 🎉
Things snowball ❄️ from there.
Suddenly, they’re creating more and more thought leadership,
either on their own, or on behalf of the #organization.
It can be a little overwhelming!
That’s one reason we wrote our new white paper,
Leveraging Your Org’s Thought Leadership, or, The #OrgTLCanvas.
Making thought leadership a “sometimes thing”
isn’t enough to really get the engine going. 🚗💨
Individuals 🕴️ and organizations 🏛️ must be intentional
about the practice of thought leadership if they truly want to create #impact.
Think about these questions:
❓What’s the “big idea” we want to implement?
❓Who are we trying to reach?
❓What does success look like?
❓How will we know if it’s working?
❓Do we have buy-in from key stakeholders across the org?
❓Do we have the budget to do this well?
It’s easy to run forward 👟👟👟, developing ideas and creating thought leadership assets.
But at some point, a leader in the organization (perhaps a CFO or CMO)
will need to hear some concrete strategy. 📈
Over the next few posts, I’ll explain the various parts of the OrgTL Canvas.
I invite you to follow me on this journey.
