Abstract

Our study examines how CEO values of self-enhancement and self-transcendence influence both short- and long-term firm performance. Self-enhancement focuses on power and achievement while self-transcendence emphasizes the welfare of others in various settings. We hypothesized and tested whether CEOs with these two values differentially influence short- and long-term firm performance, and the mediating role of organizational culture using a longitudinal survey study of 262 CEOs of Chinese firms from 2003 to 2007. Our results show that self-enhancement relates to short-term performance while self-transcendence leads to long-term performance, as CEOs develop a corporate culture of innovativeness and stakeholder consideration.
