Deconstructing a talk

Posted on: July 11, 2016

This YouTube video is a brilliant critique of talks by self-proclaimed thought leaders. It revealed every drop of snake oil.

The first time I was called a thought leader, I did not even know what that was.

It is still a label I am not comfortable with. If someone sticks it on me, I pull it right off. I recall someone introducing me as a thought leader at an event. When I took the floor, I explained how I did not just deal with thought but also with action.

Reflecting on that helped me remember when I might have first been called a thought leader. It was a session I led that pointed out the fallacies of lectures and talks. How was that for leading with thought?
