Thought Leader: A phrase that is interesting and too worn out at the same time.

Small bio, profiles, PR slug, LinkedIn – you can see this everywhere.

And the beauty of this is ‘Everyone refers to themselves as “Thought Leader” unabashedly’.

Consider it my age or restricted knowledge, I keep wondering as to this is just like referring to oneself in the third person. Debating on social media, attending a couple of panels etc doesn’t make you one.

But then what do I know. I have never been “A thought leader” always a learner and follower.

What do you make of it?
