Defining Thought Leadership

In Partnership with MGMThink

Much of the B to B online media experience is focused on “thought leadership.” That is, tips and tools for effective management and industry best practices. But this useful term has quickly become a buzzword so prolific it ceases to indicate much. Through this series supported by MGMThink, an MGM Resorts International online platform, TriplePundit will discuss what it means to be a thought leader and examine the content that lives under this banner . We’ll look at thought leadership for individuals, teams and industries and cover behavior, strategy and communication. Our goal is to give this tired old phrase a breath of fresh air with new meaning and hopefully spur content that truly pushes the envelope.
