What does it mean to be a “thought leader”?
Every day we listen, read, watch, and follow people sharing ideas and information that inspires, encourages, and guides our professional and personal lives. Thought leaders have a profound impact on what we do and how we act - helping us shape the future of our profession and our own careers as we engage with them. Individually, we can also develop skills and habits that can make us successful thought leaders within our own spheres of influence. Through dedicated learning and practice, you can grow into a thought leader to make a significant impact in the world in which you live. The format of this webinar will be a conversation between Brandon and Scott.
