Thought leader is a term used to describe individuals or companies that are recognized as experts and an authority in selected fields of specializations. It's a great honor to be among the businessmen and entrepreneurs to earn that title. But, you shouldn't call yourself a thought leader out loud or in public - even if others consider you to be.

When someone else sees you as a thought leader - it's humbling. But referring to yourself as one can make you look egoistic, unrelatable, and frankly, it's annoying. Instead, focus on doing a good work, and let it speak for itself. In the end - what others think about you is what really matters and follows best leadership practices.
