Example text

The subject of entrepreneurial careers has received increasing attention recently (see, for instance, Dyer, 1992, 1994). My approach to this topic is that the career route should implement the special talents of the entrepreneur, and only if this is done is career success likely to be reached. Thus, personal achievers should follow an achieving route, real managers a managing route, expert idea generators an idea-generating route, and empathic supersalespeople a selling route. ’’ To the extent, and for whatever reason, this does not occur, the theory anticipates a lower level of success, trending into failure.

They also tend to dislike, and shy away from, highly structured and regulated employment situations. They need the freedom to think for themselves, to have ideas even if not very good ones, which they later must discard. This freedom to create and try out ideas is crucial. The idea generating route requires that this opportunity exist. Often what pushes expert idea generators into entrepreneurship is that they feel stifled where they are. As noted previously, by no means do all expert idea generators find entrepreneurship, nor should they find it.

The point is that, under the right circumstances, being a real manager and being a successful entrepreneur are not incompatible. Because managing and managerial effectiveness have been studied extensively, it is possible to specify a number of factors that would be expected to contribute to a strong real manager pattern (Ghiselli, 1971; Miner, 1993). As a result, the real manager pattern contains some 13 different components. In a few cases these are related and may be partially overlapping, but there is enough range in personality represented here so that one person found to be a real manager need not be identical to another.
