Chapter Chapter 9 in Understanding the Entrepreneurial Mind, 2009, pp 191-215 from Springer

Abstract: Affective processes of individuals and teams at work are increasingly becoming acknowledged as important drivers of business decision-making processes and organizational behaviors. In particular, there has been an increasing interest in the notion of passion and its role in entrepreneurship. Business practitioners reckon that to stand even a chance of winning in a cutthroat environment dominated by larger, richer competitors, an entrepreneur needs to have “passion” – the “fire of desire” that enables an entrepreneur to surmount even the most difficult obstacles.
