  4. The Head of Thought Leadership doesn’t understand the business strategy and goals.
  5. Other departments get into turf wars over activities (“we do Thought Leadership too!”)
  6. The Head of Thought Leadership tries to do it all — instead, the Head of TL should *curate* Thought Leadership
  7. The Head of Thought Leadership doesn’t build allies in other departments
  8. Thought Leadership is seen as something by/for the elite (only the CEO).
  9. The org gets impatient for results.
