Narcissism is a relatively stable personality trait defined as “excessive self-love or egocentrism” (American Psychological Association, 2018). Characterized by a grandiose sense of self-importance, arrogance, and self-esteem (Judge, LePine, & Rich, 2006), trait narcissism exists on a continuum from mild to maladaptive, with a ‘midrange’ of narcissism arguably optimal for effective leadership (Grijalva et al., 2015). However, having high levels of narcissism conflicts with the very essence of sustainability, which emphasizes concern for others and the natural environment (see Dietz, Fitzgerald, & Shwom, 2005). Thus, we propose that high levels of CEO narcissism have negative consequences for sustainability.
