11:08 AM – Listening to Yang Ling (GMU School of Management) talk about research into the personal values of CEOs and firm performance. This is a really interesting line of inquiry b/c most research on entrepreneurs look at their personalities. As Ling explained, personal values are different from personalities. However, it appears that the variables they used as ‘collectivism’ and novelty as personal values. Not sure how that I fully understand why they chose these values, but I am happy that they started this line of research. Looks like they studied small and medium sized firms — not sure this is entrepreneurship — a typical problem going that brings us back to the root of the problem with entrepreneurship research — who/which firms are entrepreneurs/entrepreneurial.
