In years past, the keywords for leaders were confidence, single-minded purpose, and strategic planning. But todayas vastly complex, globalized, and fast-evolving world requires a different kind of leadership. This game-changing book details a new approachaentrepreneurial leadershipadeveloped at Babson College, the number-one school for entrepreneurship in the world. Entrepreneurial leadership is inspired by, but is separate from, entrepreneurship. It can be applied in any organizational situation, not just start-ups. Based on two years of extensive research, it embraces three principles that add up to a fundamentally new worldview of business and a new logic of decision making. First, rapid change and increasing uncertainty require leaders to be acognitively ambidextrous, a able to shift between traditional aprediction logica (choosing actions based on analysis) and acreation logica (taking action despite considerable unknowns). Guiding this different way of thinking and acting is a new view of business, where simultaneous creation of social, environmental, and economic value is the order of the day. Finally, entrepreneurial leaders leverage their understanding of themselves and their social context to guide effective action. Each chapter offers concrete examples of how educators across all disciplines are integrating these ideas into their coursesaand even their entire curricula. The New Entrepreneurial Leader lays out a comprehensive new paradigm for reinventing management education in order to mold leaders who will shape social and economic opportunity.This game-changing book details a new approachaentrepreneurial leadershipadeveloped at Babson College, the number-one school for entrepreneurship in the world.
