Launch New Initatives & Inspire Others

August 19, 2020

Many leaders see their roles as presiders/managers, with a primary focus on keeping results consistent with past performance and on budget. These kinds of leaders make important contributions but rarely leave a mark on the businesses they serve.

For those wanting to make a lasting impact, new skills are required. They need to learn to launch new initiatives, inspire others, and champion innovative approaches. In Entrepreneurial Leadership, Joel Peterson calls these higher-level leaders “entrepreneurial leaders,” and they create durable enterprises that deliver on their promise.

Peterson lays out a path to achieving this leadership, with a series of maps organized around four core philosophies: establishing trust, creating a sense of mission, building a cohesive team, and executing and delivering results. While easy to summarize, these concepts can be difficult to implement. Let Entrepreneurial Leadership guide you on your journey.
