Entrepreneurial Leadership Defined

In the increasingly turbulent and competitive environment business firms face today, a new type of "entrepreneurial" leader distinct from other behavioral forms of managerial leadership is required. Entrepreneurial leadership is leadership that is based on the attitude that the leader is self-employed. Leaders of this type:

  • take initiative and act as if they are playing a critical role in the organization rather than a mostly important one and energize their people,

  • demonstrate entrepreneurial creativity, search continuously for new opportunities and pursue them,

  • take risk, venture into new areas and provide strategic direction and inspiration to their people,

  • take responsibility for the failures of their team, learn from these failures and use them as a step to ultimate success and strategic achievement.

Entrepreneurial leadership involves instilling the confidence to think, behave and act with entrepreneurship in the interests of fully realizing the intended purpose of the organization to the beneficial growth of all stakeholders involved.

Key Benefits

In the new era of rapid changes and knowledge-based enterprises, managerial work becomes increasingly a leadership task. Leadership is the primary force behind successful change. Leaders empower employees to act on the vision. They execute through inspiration and develop implementation capacity networks through a complex web of aligned relationships.

Entrepreneurial leadership is not a position, it is a process. The entrepreneurial leader takes responsibility to assist the organization in creating such conditions so that, instead of being controlled, the organization generates its own order and responds creatively to the environment. This role is not only more productive for the organization, it is liberating for the leader as well. By helping to unleash the creative potential of their organizations, entrepreneurial leaders are unleashing their own.
