Abstract:
Entrepreneurial leadership is a relatively emergent paradigm. Whilst in its infancy it has
amassed a reasonable, yet fragmented literature base which has created limitations inciting
paradigmatic challenges including definitional disparity and an absence of a conceptual framework.
This paper addresses the challenges faced by entrepreneurial leadership through the systematic
review and thematic analysis of 112 papers. Eight themes of entrepreneurial leadership were
identified: the intersection of leadership and entrepreneurship, the gendered approach, the
psychological approach, entrepreneurial leadership development, entrepreneurial leadership skills,
entrepreneurial teams, the context approach, and entrepreneurial leadership and performance. A
prominent finding from the thematic analysis was the influence of papers to multiple themes thus
illuminating relationships within the paradigm. A conceptual framework is presented which
identifies the influencing variables of entrepreneurial leadership and the relationships between
them. This framework aims to provide a theoretical foundation of entrepreneurial leadership on
which further research can be cogitated.
