Time for Real Entrepreneurial Leadership

BY BOB SHENEFELT

 

Now more than ever, people are looking for leadership. Leadership that has a vision, leadership that involves humans and human spirit. Leadership that involves and promotes and inspires creativity. It is time for the entrepreneurs, the leaders, to be vulnerable and bold and set forth a path, explain the path, ask for help, create great themes. What is sorely needed are leaders who are going for it, the true entrepreneurial spirit, taking risks with boundaries and time frames, and parameters that we do re-evaluate and adjust accordingly. Often entrepreneurs try something and say, “Oh, we are so close,” but often “so close” can last for years. Constantly check in to make sure that we are still heading toward our North Star.

Check in often.  How are we doing?  How can we adjust, and how are we doing as individuals? Celebrate the successes and the failures.
