Entrepreneurial leadership, developing enterprises, 4 Magelang High School, teachers’ perspective



Entrepreneurship is one of the important competencies that must be possessed by students in order to have global competitiveness. However, entrepreneurship development has not gained enough attention. Many educators lack attention to the students’ entrepreneurs’ growth and behavior. School orientation is just focused on technical knowledge and ability. In order to create students who have competitiveness and entrepreneurship, the principal as an education leader has a very important role. This research aims to reveal the principal's entrepreneurial leadership in developing entrepreneurship in 4 Magelang High School viewed from the teachers’ perspective. This research used descriptive qualitative approach. The data sources were taken by purposive sampling through in-depth interviews with teachers. The data analysis was carried out in a qualitative descriptive manner with the process of data reduction, data presentation, and data verification. The data validity was done in triangulation using source triangulation. The results showed that the principal's entrepreneurial leadership was implemented through three main principles. First, the principal is committed to hard work and smart all the time and feels that her entrepreneur success is important. Second, the principal is creative and innovative, also has confidence in developing a good relationship with customers, education staff, parents, community, and the business world. Third, the principal is able to responsibly accept the challenge of success and failure. The research findings recommend the need for a principal to be provided with entrepreneurial competencies because with these competencies the principal can make breakthroughs in developing the school.
