Understanding the entrepreneur's explicit and implicit power motives
by Radityo Putro Handrito, Hendrik Slabbinck, Johanna Vanderstraeten
We explore the relation between the personal motives of the entreprneurs and the environmental sustainability orientation (ESO) of their SMEs.
We focus on the enterpreneurs' implicit and explicit power motives.
Both explicit and implicit power motives play a significant role in the SME's ESO.
A high level of ESO is obtained when the entrepreneur is motivated either by explicit power or implicit power (i.e., power motives discrepancy).
