The traits and skills of a successful entrepreneur may differ between businesses. In family enterprises, where at least two systems – family and business – meet, the desirable characteristics of a good entrepreneur are different from those in non-family businesses. The main goal of this paper was to establish which features of an entrepreneur are considered more favourable in family businesses than in non-family businesses. Our results demonstrate that for family entrepreneurs, features connected with sustaining long-term survival are more vital than for non-family businesses. Moreover, skills which may be useful in developing social capital – for example, negotiation skills and creating business relations – are more important in non-family fims, which is contrary to the assumption provided in the literature review. however, the evaluation of the results gained in this study indicates that in order to sustain their competitive advantages, family fims should not downplay the role of social skills and should become less risk-averse, as risk-taking can sometimes be the only way to ensure survival in the market.
Pożądane cechy i umiejętności dobrego przedsiębiorcy mogą się różnić w zależności od organizacji, w którą jest zaangażowany. W przedsiębiorstwach rodzinnych, w których spotykają się co najmniej dwa systemy: rodzina i przedsiębiorstwo – pożądane cechy przedsiębiorcy mogą być zupełnie inne niż w przypadku pozostałych przedsiębiorstw. Głównym celem artykułu było ustalenie, które z tych cech są lepiej postrzegane przez firmy rodzinne, a które – przez firmy nierodzinne. Wyniki pokazują, że dla przedsiębiorców rodzinnych cechy związane z utrzymaniem długoterminowego przetrwania są ważniejsze niż dla firm nierodzinnych. Co więcej, umiejętności, które mogą być przydatne dla rozwoju kapitału społecznego (np. umiejętności negocjacyjne i tworzenie relacji biznesowych), są ważniejsze w firmach nierodzinnych. Ocena wyników uzyskanych w tym badaniu wskazuje, że w celu utrzymania przewagi konkurencyjnej firmy rodzinne nie powinny bagatelizować roli umiejętności społecznych i powinny być bardziej otwarte na podejmowanie ryzyka, ponieważ z czasem może się to okazać jedyną drogą do zapewnienia im przetrwania na rynku.
