KPCB Partner, Randy Komisar talks about Entrepreneurial Management 101: Entrepreneurs, Managers and Leaders at KPCB's 12 to 200 CEO Workshop, a conference on growing entrepreneurial businesses, held in Stanford, California on July 16, 2013.

So much gets muddled up as we talk about entrepreneurship, management and leadership, that it's important to tease it apart. When you do, you find a whole new way to think about management and leadership in entrepreneurial organizations.

I'm going to start with my definition of an entrepreneur -- which you need to distinguish from the definitions of managers and leaders.

• Entrepreneurs are first and foremost about creativity. They're not about leading or managing. The role of the entrepreneur is about creation. They see a better future and strive with minimal resources to achieve it.
• Managers enable teams to achieve objectives. They see a goal, and they empower people to reach it.
• Leaders are about harnessing the power of people. They see a greater purpose and inspire others to achieve it.

These are three separate roles. We celebrate them when they are unified in one person, but that's not always the case.
