Why Entrepreneurs Are Natural Thought Leaders
In a recent Leveraging Thought Leadership podcast with Bill Sherman,
I talked about Entrepreneurs and thought leadership in practice.
Bill called Entrepreneurship a “first cousin” of thought leadership. My position is stronger. I believe that startup founders and entrepreneurs are natural thought leaders. Here’s why:
Entrepreneurs and thought leaders both have a talent for envisioning future trends – but entrepreneurs don’t just think about the future. They typically build their vision into a product, a service and a dynamic organization. Entrepreneurs want their vision to have a lasting, deep and positive social impact. So they don’t just talk the future -they are busy bringing it into being.
It was a great conversation! To listen to the podcast visit Bill’s website.
