A Study of Leadership Styles of Women Entrepreneurs in India

Economic development of any region is an outcome of purposeful efforts by different sections of the society. One of the major contributors to the economy is an entrepreneur. Entrepreneur is a person who organizes and operates the business and is responsible for the results in the business. Women entrepreneurship development is an important part of Human Resource Development. Entrepreneurship in women has been a very recent concern. Women have become aware of their existence, their rights, and their work situations. In the present scenario, women want to be independent in social and economic aspects. Several studies have been carried out in the area of women entrepreneurship but studies related to the leadership styles followed by famous entrepreneurs are limited. The present paper studies the leadership style followed by women entrepreneurs in India and what problems they have faced in their endeavors. The myth that women cannot engage in productive employment needs to be dispelled. Women are growing as successful in different areas and playing vital role in the socio economic development of the country.
