Conférence CRM : "The Emotional Manager and Entrepreneur "

"The Emotional Manager and Entrepreneur"Friday, october 11
1:30 pm to 3 pm

Entrepreneurship researchers have mostly used strategy theories to explain how new firms create capabilities and factors that impact firm outcomes. In this talk, I will discuss how the behavioral approach, i.e., the approach that takes an individual and team perspective, also predicts outcomes of interest to strategy and entrepreneurship researchers. In addition, I will discuss ways in which emotion research provides insights into outcomes of interest to these researchers.
