Entrepreneurial leadership is leadership that is based on self devotion of the leader as the sole determinant of success of that business by taking strategic initiatives, and largely demonstrating remarkable entrepreneurial creativity skills. According to Dubrin (2010, p.75) organizational leaders who demonstrate entrepreneurial leadership traits are usually accompanied by outstanding performance their positions. For instance, Steve Jobs, who was Apple’s Chief Executive Officer, can be considered as an entrepreneurial leader due to his outstanding accomplishment for the company. On the other hand, Henri Dunant who is the founder of the International Red Cross Society exhibited significant entrepreneurial leadership skills throughout his life. This paper brings into focus the entrepreneurial contribution of both Steve Jobs and Henri Dunant as remarkable entrepreneurial leaders in the organizations they worked in.
