Entrepreneurship is a latent skill present in a lot of people. Just look at how enterprising people are in their spare time, without being asked or paid for it! Organisations should do more to encourage entrepreneurship amongst their people. Because if people are inspired by something, they will often achieve excellent results and actually enjoy their work. In Entrepreneurial Leadership you will learn how to go about this.
The authors show you how to integrate entrepreneurship for your employees in their everyday work. They focus on visionary entrepreneurship, implementing successful strategies and dealing with change. They also cover a number of methods for creativity that provide practical ideas for innovating with your products and services. Organisational culture is also covered, because if you want to be a leader full of initiative, you want to create a culture where people want to continually improve and innovate.
Entrepreneurial Leadership is a practical book with tips, practical examples and exercises that you can adapt to your own work situation. The book makes an important contribution to improving entrepreneurial behaviour among people at all levels of the organisation. If you are a manager, team leader or department head, it will help you get more entrepreneurship out of yourself and your people.
