Entrepreneurship and Leadership




A complex mix of attitudes, traits, motives, skills, capabilities, styles and mental mindsets contributes to entrepreneurial leadership. The current volume brings together perspectives from leading scholars in the entrepreneurship and management disciplines that inform our understanding of the nature of, requirements for, and implications resulting from entrepreneurial leadership. This important book is organized into eight key leadership imperatives: igniting entrepreneurial action; establishing entrepreneurial control; understanding entrepreneurial motivation; encouraging entrepreneurial ethics; formulating entrepreneurial strategy; dealing with entrepreneurial failure; creating entrepreneurial environments and demonstrating leadership and vision. This collection will serve as a vital reference for scholars, teachers and doctoral students who wish to read and examine the most significant literature in the entrepreneurial leadership domain.
