There are plenty of people out there who are seen as thought leaders - those who are in authority in a field or a sphere or on a topic. Thought leadership and wanting to become a thought leader is getting thrown around a lot lately but do thought leaders actually lead? Are they focusing on themselves and their authority or are they helping others and looking at who they’re taking with them? Because to me that is what leadership is all about. It’s about who you are taking with you.

You want to know the health of someone's leadership? Look at the health of their team. You want to know the health of someone's leadership in their family? Look at the health of what's going on in their home. Some of these thought leaders have team members who are not being elevated and kids who aren't singing their praises and spouses who don't see the same magic that is perceived by the masses. 

So, today we're going to talk about the fact that, from my vantage point, thought leadership and true leadership are not necessarily synonymous. This is such an important conversation that's going to help you step into thought leadership, something that you're working towards while also leading well in your business and your home.
