Each year the College of Economics, Business and Tourism at the Universidad de La Laguna holds an 3 day conference called “Semana de la Empresa,” which could be translated as “Business Week”. The purpose of the conference is to engage around topics that will help “future graduates connect with the economic-social life of their immediate surroundings.” This is the 34th year that the conference is going to be held.
During the keynote address at this year´s annual conference, I will introduce a leadership style that could be considered essential for creating entrepreneurial-oriented organizational environments. Without “letting the cat out of the bag”… it is not “authoritarian leadership”. Likewise, we will explore the unique opportunity that entrepreneurs have in creating positive organizational cultures, since they build organizations from the bottom-up.
