What is an entrepreneur’s most important skill?

I read recently that an entrepreneur’s most important skill was his or her ability to execute. Upon reading that, I immediately thought of all the exceptional entrepreneurs I know who (if left alone) couldn’t execute their way out of a paper bag.

Those entrepreneurs have different skills that seem to serve them well. Their most important one may be their ability to surround themselves with and motivate a group of people who can execute.

I like how Martin Luther King, Jr. put it:

If you want to move people it has to be toward a vision that’s positive for them. One that taps important values, that gets them something they desire. And it has to be presented in a compelling way that people feel inspired to follow.
