As unlikely as it sounds, a master commedian who I used to watch every Saturday evening on television as a kid, winds-up teaching me as much about leadership as any real-life CEO I've had the opportunity to watch close-up. How could that possibly be? Here I am, a professor at a leading business school, virtually surrounded by well-known senior executives; why rely on a long-past comic artist? Well, for one thing, he was really smart! Imagine, putting together a team of Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, Neil Simon, Carl Reiner and Larry Gelbart and more.
