Özet: Transformational leaders create a strategic vision, communicate that vision through enclosing and use of symbol, model the vision by “walking the talk” and acting consistently, and build commitment towards the vision. Entrepreneurial leadership is still essential in SMEs because the development of micro-entrepreneurs’ businesses would not be successful without demonstrating leadership traits that are effect This could perhaps be the reason as to why themes on micro-enterprises are successfully developed widely amid business developers and researchers, particularly for those keenly interested in determining a formula that defines successful micro-entrepreneurship. The study’s specific objective is to determine the effect of self-leadership on entrepreneuship development. The primary data was collected from direct responses from listed SMEs by using structured questionnaire with 412 respondents as a sample size for the study.

The findings show that self-leadership has a significant impact on SMEs development. This study can improve the performance and sustainability of Nigerian SMEs, thus increasing their capacity to create employment. Subsequently, the study recommends that management of SMEs should adopt good strategy in order to overcome leadership challenges.
