Entrepreneurial Leadership: What Is It And How Its Relevant To Business

shutterstock_450692719

How would you define entrepreneurial leadership?

Is an attitude which shapes how a leader approaches problems? Is it the behaviors that create action? Is an approach to problem solving? I believe that entrepreneurial leadership is a distinct behavioral form of management oriented leadership. In the modern business world, the way we do business is ever changing. Business peoples now learn not just from history, but from conferences, seminars, mentorships, and consultants. The globalization of information and knowledge has dynamically shaped leadership. I would go so far as to say that leadership is the driving force behind successful and effective business endeavors.

Leadership in action occurs when leaders cast their vision and empower their employees to fulfill their vision. True leadership occurs through inspiration, employee development, networking, and navigating the complicated web of relationships. Entrepreneurial leaders leverage a variety of tools and tricks of the trade to accomplish their company’s goals. The problem is that the tools alone will not make you an expert and does not mean that you will achieve the desired outcome. True and effective leaders are segmented from the others by their mentality, vision, attitude, and innovation.

I hope you have been successfully teased and will check out my full Entrepreneurial Leadership defining blog today!

3 Brilliant Tips On Accomplishment

3 Outstanding Tips On Accomplishment From Rick Morsovillo

Everyone has their own strengths that define and underlie the story of our lives. Fortunately, one of my strengths is the ability to accomplish tasks. If you this is not a strength of yours, don’t worry, we all cannot be great at everything. For you, this blog could be the start of a great journey down self improvement. Here are a few tips on accomplishment and to seeing an idea through that has been very helpful for me in getting things done.

Rick Morsovillo’s Tip on Accomplishment #1: Keep the Vision Clear

Whether you are launching a new business unit or working on some project management, it is important that you maintain focus on your end goal. This needs to be the lens that you look through when making decisions. For example, to make a goal in hockey, I must make decisions on the ice that gets me closer to the net, not further away.

Rick Morsovillo’s Tip on Accomplishment #2: Qualify the Advice-Giver.

Everyone is entitled to having their own opinion, but that does not mean that their advice is warranted. When in a team environment, their opinion may not be what is best for the group at large. I have noticed that a lot of people desire advice and then feel obligated to act upon the advice they were given. However, advice givers, may offer advice for a variety of reasons: to be helpful, out of concern, and sometimes to be self-service. For example, as a hockey coach, I want my team to be as successful as possible. Throughout the season I receive a lot of advice about which players should get the most ice time. As the leader, it is my responsibility to assess the advice as much as the individual speaking them. From there, I have to decide whether it will help me or my team accomplish the goal. Then I have to act upon my decision.

Rick Morsovillo’s Tip On Accomplishment #3: Celebrate!

What good is accomplishment without the recognition for the deed? It can be something as simple as a private pat on your own back or an elaborate party. Regardless, never understand the motivational power and influence of celebration in regards to accomplishment.

In the end, it is ultimately the sense of accomplishment; that feeling of completed something, that keeps me motivated to accomplish more. So, for those of you who wish to grow in this area, I leave you this final thought: “Practice makes perfect.”

I hope you found these tips to be helpful. Again, my name is Rick Morsovillo and thanks again for taking the time to read my blog.

Entrepreneurial Drive Part 2

Entrepreneurs and What Drives Them Part 2

Entrepreneurial Drive With A Cape

Welcome back, my name is Rick Morsovillo and this is the second installment in my series on the motivational factors for entrepreneurs. Is it financial gain? Personal achievement? Freedom? Or are entrepreneurs just prone to big egos? In this blog, I share the findings of my quest to better understanding entrepreneurs. Click here, to read Entrepreneurs and What Drives Them Part 1.

6. Family

Many entrepreneurs love that their family can be a critical component of their business. Furthermore, many entrepreneurs enjoy the luxury to be as involved in their family’s lives as they want. I get to be a coach to my son and his friends. I can pick up my cell phone whenever I want and call my wife, and I don’t have to worry about upsetting my boss. My family knows that work is important, and they support me. In turn, I desire to support them in the things that matter most to them.

7. Change

Several entrepreneurs desire to produce change. As a consultant, I work hard to help my clients increase their efficiency while maximizing their businesses outputs. With certainty, I can say that I am a proponent of change for my clients. I personally provide solutions increase their production, minimize risk, and satisfy more of their customers.

8. Legacy

Part of entrepreneurialism is building your legacy every single day. The legacy I gladly leave to my children is this: hard work and perseverance lead to financial success. I am a big advocate for people pursuing their dreams. I highly encourage all everyone to think about the legacy that they want to leave behind. Then, find a  way that you can utilize your strengths to obtain that legacy.

9. Achievement

Entrepreneurs pursue achievement. Success is the result of a good business decision on their part. I love the personal sense of accomplishment that comes every day as I pursue my dreams and achieve the reality that I seek. Furthermore, the compounding effective of consecutive accomplishments fuel the pursuit of even more accomplishments.

10. Control

People like control. They like the ability to determine what they want to do with their lives, how they live their lives, and do not want others to guide every move.. This is especially true for entrepreneurs. Everyone gets to determine how hard they work. As an entrepreneur, I am get to set my own schedule, accomplish my own tasks, and be in control of what I do.

I believe that no one entrepreneur is motivated by the exact same cause. On the off chance that you need effective, and successful employees, think of what drives you to be successful. Is it opportunity, adaptability, social obligation, or the capacity to do incredible work? Then, pursue it with relentless dedication and give your workforce the same opportunity within your workplace.

Again, my name is Rick Morsovillo and this blog details my findings of what motivates entrepreneurs to do what they do.

Entrepreneurial Drive Part 1

Entrepreneurs and What Drives Them Part 1

What drives an entrepreneur part 1

Welcome, my name is Rick Morsovillo and I have been an entrepreneur my whole life. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to explore the many factors that motivate individuals to embrace the risks associated with becoming an entrepreneur. Could it be financial gain? Achievements? Independence? Or do entrepreneurs just have really big egos?

Being a businessman, I needed to know why others work with such tireless devotion. For me, it’s not just about the cash, although cash is a great benefit. So is it the same for others? What I found was that there are many factors that catapult entrepreneurs into entrepreneurial success.

If not cash, what could business visionaries driven by? This is part 1 of a 2-part blog series on the 10 most common reasons that I have identified.

1. Opportunity

Opportunity is king to many entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs love the ability to set their own schedule; pursue their passions; hire staff to handle the aspects of their business they want to avoid; and love the lives they lead. I absolutely love the opportunity I have to be a father to my children and an active part of their lives. I love the fact that I can support my family and be a provider for my wife. Additionally, I love that I get to work in my strengths. I get to help businesses succeed to meet my family’s financial needs! Most importantly, I can spend as much time with my family as I want.

2. Self-Rule

A few business people disdain the everyday routine. As an entrepreneur, I get to be independent and take the job opportunities that I want. I do not have to fulfill the traditional 8-5 job while working for someone else. Essentially, I get to be my own boss!

3. Freedom

Many entrepreneurs enjoy the freedom to choose what, where, when, and how they complete their daily tasks. Through my company, E&M Management, I have the flexibility to choose which companies I want to work with. Additionally, many entrepreneurs enjoy being able to service companies with similar values.

4. Obligation to society

So many entrepreneurs enjoy their ability to service and assist other companies in making the world a better place. Many entrepreneurs incorporate this driving force into the mission and vision of their companies; quite a few of today’s world-changing organizations started from driven entrepreneurs. I would highly encourage any business-minded individual to review their skill sets and create a company that fulfills their passions through their skill sets.

5. Impact

Who doesn’t enjoy the feeling that what they do matters? Who doesn’t appreciate knowing that they are making a difference in the world? As an entrepreneur, I know that every decision I make has an impact on my business and my life. I get to enjoy the success and fruit of my decisions every day, and that is significant to me.
