Thanks to all who have participated in our discussion about organizational thought leaders. Before we move on to another subject, let’s review with a little exercise:
Think about five people in your company who, in your opinion, are knowledge thought leaders (keep the names to yourself).
As you think about these people, list five characteristics for each person that contribute to his or her role as a knowledge thought leader. Also think about how, from your perspective, these characteristics connect with your estimation of the person’s role as knowledge thought leader (in other words, why is this or that particular characteristic important in the workplace).
Share these characteristics in a comment to this post. Again, don’t reveal names. If you need to assign a particular characteristic to a particular person, use something like “Person A,” “Person B,” etc. That should be enough.
But that’s not necessary unless you want to do that. Just share those five “top” attributes you would assign to a knowledge thought leader.
Let us hear from you and we’ll share the list (our own knowledge-thought-leaders “checklist” perhaps?).
