Various studies identify self-regulation as being particularly challenging for
entrepreneurs, who often have to lead themselves independently. If they use
dysfunctional self-regulatory processes, they are exposed and rather unprotected to
the high working demands of new venture creation. Not only does it imply negative
consequences on the individual level, but also on the collective level, as entrepreneurs
are recognized as engines for economic growth and ecologically sustainable

relevant research is sparse and fragmented.
This dissertation is intended to address the need for guidance on healthy and effective
self-regulation for entrepreneurs. In the first two studies, a causal model of healthy
and effective self-regulation that can be applied in the context of entrepreneurship
has been empirically developed and tested. The work is based on a meta-theory of
human motivation, called self-determination theory (SDT), which focuses on selfregulation.
Structural equation modeling has been applied based on cross-sectional
quantitative data (N=1,024). ... mehr
