Are Entrepreneurs Employable?

Drive like a Real Entrepreneur’ is the title of my new book which was launched recently. You can purchase the book by visiting my shop here. Drive like a Real Entrepreneur

In the book, there are specific comments on the characteristics of being an entrepreneur, together with up-to-date, practical and useful management tools and techniques for entrepreneurs. In my last few blogs, I have shared with you a couple of these tools, as a sample of what you can find in my new book. I hope these were helpful for many of you, existing and aspiring entrepreneurs!

I am changing tack and am going to be asking some leading questions and giving you my answer – you may not agree but it is good to have a view…..

Are entrepreneurs employable?

Answer: Yes and No

The reason this is not a definitive reply is because it depends on the job or role.

Yes In certain circumstances, they are definitely employable. This would be when they are; • performing a role under pressure • dealing with customers and explaining the delivery and processes required • ensuring that the organisation lives and breathes legendary service • leading a team • creating something new and vibrant • managing change

No They are unemployable if the role; • is routine • does not involve dealing with people • has few challenges • constrains their ability to forge ahead • is limited in scope

Entrepreneursagitate’. Their behaviour is quite distinct.

If the role does not give the entrepreneur the freedom to move around and create something -- then an entrepreneurial type is not suited to the role and is clearly unemployable.

Often an entrepreneur may be involved on a consultancy basis to fix something, perhaps a project which is going awry, a programme which is overrunning or to downsize a team. Then the entrepreneur is obviously employable.

Entreprenuers are very versatile people and can be used in a variety of roles.

I explain a lot more in my section 1.3 on entrepreneurial behaviour in my new book. Buy a copy to explore this fascinating subject.
