The Skills Most Entrepreneurs Lack
“Entrepreneurs are a unique group of people, but they behave in patterns. In fact, as I recently wrote here on HBR, my firm’s research shows that most serial entrepreneurs display persuasion, leadership, personal accountability, goal orientation, and interpersonal skills. But in that same study, we also discovered a set of skills they do not possess.”
According to HBR, most serial entrepreneurs lack the skills to manage themselves, plan and organize, problem solve (analytically) and are not empathetic. But with this knowledge, business starters can train themselves to be even more successful by strengthening these weaknesses.
