This article is an interesting perspective from a businessman about how artists are leaders. He names 4 leadership lessons that can be learned from the members of the arts industry and identifies how having a vision, collaborating with others, being accountable and managing others are all attributes that artists or arts-industry workers can teach corporate america. From the outside looking in, the arts-industry has their stuff together, but we all know that arts organizations are not perfect. As we continually try to perfect our organizations, it feels good to know that corporate america is slightly jealous of us.
