About this book


Exploring the interaction between entrepreneurs and managers, this book attempts to understand the psychology behind how they think, behave and interact in order to benefit organizations. The Entrepreneurial Paradox shows how to achieve sustainable success and resilience through teamwork. In examining the collective mind, the author asserts that understanding these relationships can secure the right changes within a business through the integration and transfer of entrepreneurial experience and new managerial approaches. Presenting original research, the author reveals new insights into the challenges in such interactions, addresses what causes them and provides a guide for avoiding conflict.
