Leadership A Joke

            Olson makes the argument that leaders, CEOs especially, can learn a lot about leadership from stand-up comedians. The article is based on the findings of a management coach by the name of Roger Edward Jones. Olson wrote about how Jones used his experience in stand-up comedy to bring a new approach to leadership. The comparison between comedy and a  leader, is that the comedian finds new and improved ways to convey their message to the audience. One of the most common ways comedians do this is through storytelling.  Storytelling, Jones believes, is a good way to communicate your ideas to your team in the corporate structure, but he feels that the art of storytelling is not being used to the best of its ability.
