ABSTRACT
The article discusses how business leaders can be entrepreneurial leaders. The authors assert that entrepreneurial leaders understand themselves and the contexts in which they work, and they act on and shape the opportunities that create value for their organizations, stakeholders, and society. The three interlinked principles that guide entrepreneurial leaders and the five actions that leaders can methodically take and deliberately learn in becoming entrepreneurial leaders are elaborated.
