HPS CEO Terry Rowinski recently joined Thrive Global for an interview as part of their series on how to become a thought leader.
There are so many buzzwords out there that are overused. The concept of being a thought leader is a very important one. A thought leader, or influencer, is someone who, based on their expertise and perspective in an industry, offers unique guidance, inspires innovation and influences others.
It is important to position yourself as a leader and subject matter expert in your space. This allows for credibility and opportunity. Here are 5 strategies that a person should implement to become known as a thought leader in their industry:
- Be informed.
- Take calculated risks.
- Showcase your areas of expertise. Learning the art of self-promotion is key.
- Connect with other thought leaders in your space to leverage each other’s ideas.
- Never stop learning.
