Entreprenureship as a Leadership Competency
Entrepreneurship is about a different mind-set altogether. It is another dimension which can transform the execution horsepower of the employee and quickly transport him/her from where he/she stands today to another pedestal where he/she thinks and acts like a true leader.
This refers to a mind-set that the employee operates in his/her function as if, it were his/her own shop and the monies involved were his/her own too. Thinking like an entrepreneur requires a higher level of mental toughness and intelligence than simply a run-of-the-mill employee would who comes in everyday just to do a job. Accountability and ownership become inherent when the employee starts thinking like an entrepreneur. When you start thinking from a P&L perspective, the mind expands in many different dimensions and your thinking and actions acquire a whole new sense of direction and purpose. The cumulative effect of the same is a significant increase in the execution and performance quotient of the employee. In fact, even learning & development activities become highly effective given the shifted mindset of the employee.
