Abstract The objective of this paper is to emporocally examine through an industry survey, the influence of self-management leadership; transformational and transactional leadership on the dimensions of entrepreneurial orientation (EO) - innovativeness, pro-activeness and risk-taking - in established companies. The paper also investigates the level of prediction of the dimentions of EO by adding self-management leadership in the set of predictor variables. Results indicate that self-mangement leadership behaviours are positively and significanyly correlated with the dimensions of innovation and risk taking/proactiveness. the findings also indicate that transformational leadership is a better predictor of innovation, as the innovation-transactional leadership relationship was found to be negative.

Finally, it was found that the dimensions of self-management leadership provided a small but statistical significant incremental validity for the variables of innovation and risk taking/proactiveness after having statistically controlled for the predictive affects of transformational and transactional leadership.
