Seminar paper from the year 2018 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1, , language: English, abstract: Richard Branson has emerged to be one of the 21st century historical entrepreneurs owing to his leadership style and personal characteristics. In the past twenty years, Richard Branson has realized remarkable recognition in the business world in which he has expanded his investment in an array of ventures. His interest in business developed long ago during his elementary education when he dropped out of school and established a mail-order business. Later on, he transformed his mail-order business into a record label, in 1970s. It is quite surprising to learn that Branson adopted reliable business leadership approaches in his business leading to a rapid expansion (Dearlove, 2007). It was during its initial successes that Branson owned record stores, which bore the Virgin Records brand. In 1980s and 1990s, Branson extended his business venture into airlines in which he established the Virgin Atlantic Airways. In addition, he expanded his business further when he established a Virgin record label in the US. Another significant advancement of Branson’s investment was the establishment of a space tourism company named Virgin Galactic. His intention for establishing this company was for reaching orbital trips around the world owing to the remarkable growth of global tourism (Walenius & Westerstål, 2010). Currently, Branson owns the Virgin Group which is valued at $5 billion. Virgin Group consists of over 200 different companies including cellular phone companies, airlines and record labels.

This is a book on leadership from someone who has never read a book on leadership in his life. While building the Virgin Group over the course of forty years, Richard Branson has never shied away from tackling seemingly outlandish challenges that others (including his own colleagues on many occasions) considered sheer lunacy. He has taken on giants like British Airways and won, and monsters like Coca-Cola and lost. Now Branson gives an inside look at his strikingly different, swashbuckling style of leadership. Learn how fun, family, passion, and the dying art of listening are key components to what his extended family of employees around the world has always dubbed (with a wink) "the Virgin Way." This unique perspective comes from a man who dropped out of school at sixteen, suffers from dyslexia, and has never worked for anyone but himself. He may be famous for thinking outside the box—an expression he despises—but Branson asserts that "you’ll never have to think outside the box if you refuse to let anyone build one around you." From the Trade Paperback edition.

One of the world's most famous business leaders (and a well-known avian fanatic) explores the pioneers of flight. Bestselling author and billionaire entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson has always been obsessed with the skies. To promote a new Virgin Airlines route, he became the first man to water ski behind a blimp. His Virgin Galactic venture will soon offer ordinary people the opportunity to experience spaceflight aboard the first commercial spaceliner, SpaceShipTwo. In Reach for the Skies, Branson examines the history of aviation over the last two hundred years, putting the spotlight on trailblazers such as: *Tony Jannus, who made the first ever commercial flight over Tampa Bay, Florida, in 1914. *Leo Valentin, the "bird man" who jumped from 9,000 feet wearing a pair of wooden wings in the 1950s. *Steve Fossett, who broke 130 world records in planes, balloons, and airships. The pioneers of flight-not just the world-famous Wright Brothers, but also lesser known visionaries and dreamers-made it possible for any of us with the desire and the commitment to reach for the skies ourselves.
