Abstract

Leading an entrepreneurial firm is quite different from managing a conventional company. This chapter explains key considerations for guiding, supporting, and inspiring teams of entrepreneurial people to produce ongoing innovation. An essential requirement is to provide direction and feedback without micromanaging or telling employees how they should solve problems. The roles of three types of leaders are discussed: top leadership, founder entrepreneurs, and mid-level leaders (formerly called “middle management”). Further, the chapter examines many ingredients of leadership, from communication and incentives to new approaches for bottom-up creativity and decision-making.

For example, Musk’s presentation of the Tesla Powerwall was posted on YouTube in May 2015 and had over 2.6 million views in 3 months (Musk 2015) https://​www.​youtube.​com/​watch?​v=​yKORsrlN-2k.
The video drew much attention—for example, Carmine Gallo in Forbes commented that it is designed like a TED talk which, in 18 min, “offers leaders a blueprint for how to launch a product.” (Gallo 2015) http://​www.​forbes.​com/​sites/​carminegallo/​2015/​05/​04/​teslas-elon-musk-lights-up-social-media-with-a-ted-style-keynote/​.
