Here is a list of 10 Thinkers that Executives Actually Listen To.
Each thinker on that list is a great one, and a great presenter.
And CEOs, etal, should regularly and repeatedly open your vision to these broader strategic concepts...futures and have your vision broadened by those as far-seeing and brilliant and articulate and far-seeing as this list of 10...
But at the same time, you should...remember that right next to you or down the hall is an expert who sees very clearly how their/your organization brings meaning or doesn't or how it could bring meaning...and how they could participate to expand that meaning and profit for you and for them and their career.
Add one to the list.
NUMBER 11: Your organization members, your colleagues, your co-workers, your team members, your employees. Those who sit beside you every day thinking about how to get their job done, reach their goals, serve their customers, find some meaning...they're pretty good thinkers, too. And it's their thinking, every day, every hour of every day they strive to bring success to their organization that makes it a success and creates a platform where those other 10 thinkers can add meaning.
