Peter Winick: Do thought leaders have an obligation to help other thought leaders?

Source:  Peter Winick: Do thought leaders have an obligation to help other thought leaders? The Indispensable Conversation


I explore this question on this episode of The Indispensable Conversation with my guest Peter Winick.

Peter is the Founder and CEO, Thought Leadership Leverage. He is what many consider a “Thought Leader Whisperer” bringing the best out in his thought leadership clients.

It is this reputation that makes Peter the “right guest” to explore the issue of thought leadership obligations.

As for me, I define a thought leader as one motivated by the need to contribute to the betterment of leadership thinking, by that definition, it would seem that a true thought leader has a duty to promote great ideas, even if those ideas are not there own.

Additionally, if you’re like me and are of the mindset that we live a life of abundance, then, of course, thought leaders should help other thought leaders — there’s plenty of management consulting and coaching work to go around.

However, if your worldview is one marked by scarcity, you likely believe that others must lose for you to win.

Listen-in as we debate this provocative subject.
