Research Handbook on Entrepreneurship and Leadership

Edited by Richard T. Harrison and Claire Leitch

This Research Handbook argues that the study of entrepreneurs as leaders is a gap in both the leadership and the entrepreneurship literatures. With conceptual and empirical chapters from a wide range of cultures and entrepreneurship and leadership ecosystems, the Research Handbook for the first time produces a systematic overview of the entrepreneurial leadership field, providing a state of the art perspective and highlighting unanswered questions and opportunities for further research. It consolidates existing theory development, stimulates new conceptual thinking and includes path-breaking empirical explorations.

Chapter 8: Exploring the full range of leadership across the organizational life cycle and growth states of entrepreneurial firms

R. Greg Bell and J. Lee Whittington


The skills needed to launch a new firm are different from those required to grow and sustain the firm over time. In this chapter the authors address this important issue by developing a framework that integrates the full-range model of leadership with a life-cycle approach to understanding the evolution and growth of threshold firms. they discuss how the various elements of the full-range model of leadership may be applied in each stage of a firm’s development. They also identify several research implications that emerge from this integrated framework.
