Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the mediating role of entrepreneurial leadership between different types of organizational cultures and entrepreneurial orientation. A total of 181 online responses from the small and medium size industries were gathered with the help of chamber of commerce and were analyzed using Partial Least Square (PLS). The result revealed that adhocracy culture and clan culture significantly affected the entrepreneurial orientation only if entrepreneurial leadership style acted as a mediator showing innovative solution development and mentorship were highly dependent on entrepreneurial leadership style. However, the relationship between market culture and entrepreneurial orientation became insignificant with the mediation of entrepreneurial leadership showing lack of external focus towards the market. The role of entrepreneurial leadership style remained significant in hierarchical culture to enhance entrepreneurial orientation suggesting higher internal focus and control. This study will help researchers and practitioners to understand the entrepreneurial leadership style in different organizational perspectives to generate entrepreneurial orientation.
