你的创业者基因可能害了你的初创公司!

根据伦敦大学学院的Adrian Furnham及其同事的研究显示,一些驱使人们创业的性格特质可能会转化为负面行为,最终导致初创企业失败。对个人价值的过分夸大、完美主义以及对受人瞩目的渴望是几种最易使管理者走上创业之路的性格特质。然而研究者称,当拥有这些性格特质的创业者面对压力时,他们可能会在团队面前做出霸道的举动,例如渴望特权、微观管理、决策缓慢、顽固不化以及易受干扰。上述这些管理行为可能会加速初创企业的失败速率。(康欣叶/编译)

Will Your Entrepreneurial Personality Sink Your Start-Up?

Some of the personality traits that drawpeople into starting their own companies can lead to negative workplacebehaviors that cause the start-ups to fail, according to a study of more than 2,000 managers by Adrian Furnham of University College London and twocolleagues. Among the traits that are the most predictive of managers’ beingattracted to entrepreneurism are an inflated view of self-worth, perfectionism,and attention-seeking; under pressure, these can result in overbearingbehavior, a sense of entitlement, micromanaging, slow decision making,stubbornness, and distraction, the researchers say. Managerial behaviors ofthis sort may contribute to new enterprises’ high rate of failure.
