Join author and business coach Dave Crenshaw as he shows you the keys to becoming a respected thought leader and authority in your field. Whether you're already a visible professional or hoping to improve your presence, decision-making ability, and influence, this course can prepare you to take a meaningful step forward. Being recognized as a thought leader and authority inside and outside your company builds career capital and paves the way for new opportunities. This course demonstrates a step-by-step process to help you identify your thought leadership focus, find a mentor, develop expertise within your company, build a meaningful network externally, and develop personal publicity.
This course is one of a series of five Dave Crenshaw courses based on his Invaluable teaching methodology for professional development.
In other courses, I've suggested that you schedule time to focus on developing yourself. In becoming a leading authority, however, you're going to create a time budget for sharing your knowledge with others. Certainly, as you teach others, you'll develop yourself. I have found that I always learn the most when I help others learn, and it's the same with you. The process is fairly straightforward. Open your calendar and find some time every week that you can budget to work on becoming an authority.
Be realistic, one hour per week is enough to start. Look in your calendar for a regular day and time when it's most likely to be quiet and you won't be interrupted. Then set up a recurring weekly appointment, and when that time arrives in your schedule, keep that appointment. In the coming videos, I'll show you plenty of things you can do to make that time meaningful. As you become more of an authority, you'll want to devote more time in your schedule.
When you get to that point, just assess how much time you're spending and then establish a revised time slot. Setting the schedule is the foundation. By using the schedule and making just a little progress each week, over time you'll see the accumulation of your effort and grow steadily to become an authority.
