“We are in an age of unprecedented change, it’s a ‘revolutionary’ time to be alive! The question we need to be asking ourselves is - ‘Am I leading that change?’ I believe we all have a choice to step up into personal, professional and social leadership. We have a choice to become agents for change, amplifiers, thought leaders to upgrade our thinking and lead our very own revolutions.”

From Gimmicks to Signature Styles

Thought leaders need to stand out.

Bono's glasses, Seth Godin's bald head, Malcolm Gladwell's afro; are part of their brand.

How do you do this?

1. Whatever you choose to use as a signature needs to be congruent with who you are. Choosing to wear cowboy boots and a big buckle will only work if it's who you have been or who you are. Otherwise it's an affectation that's a gimmick.

2. You need to build a constellation of elements, not just one. It's when you put several small ideas together in a constellation that you get a signature style.

3. It's helpful in some way to others. Maybe in only that it helps them remember your key idea or message.

Keep thinking.
