Event Summary: Entrepreneurial leadership is an emerging paradigm from the domains of leadership and entrepreneurship. While both fields of leadership and entrepreneurship have developed considerable bodies of research spanning several decades, independently the concepts have achieved little definitional consensus. Although entrepreneurial leadership has received little attention, it has been acknowledged as an evolving approach to leadership towards achieving strategic value creation. However, despite the growing interest and developing perspectives related to entrepreneurial leadership, empirical development of the concept has been hindered by the lack of focused research and the absence of adequate tools towards assessing a leader’s entrepreneurial skill set.
To address this gap, Christian’s study provides a critical examination of the concept of entrepreneurial leadership. He will be providing the associated entrepreneurial leadership skills required for success. His study offers the first empirical skill-based model of this phenomenon and has had strong implications in theory and practice.
