Abstract [en]

In recent years, many small- and medium-sized firms have joined formal strategic networks in an effort to enhance firm performance. We set out to examine how altruistic behavior by these firms affected their performance at different levels of altruistic norms within their network. Using a multi-level analytic approach and data from a population of Swedish strategic networks, we found significant cross-level moderating effects that explained variance in firm-level performance. The results showed that firms participating in strategic networks benefit more from being altruistic when other network members generally display high levels of altruism. Apparently, altruistic behaviors are rewarded relative to a general network norm. The potential to perform well thus depends on aligning a firm’s altruistic behavior with the general level of altruism in its network.

Abstract [fr]

Ces dernières années, de nombreuses petites et moyennes entreprises se sont intégrées à des réseaux stratégiques formels dans un effort de renforcement de la performance entrepreneuriale. Nous tentons d’examiner comment le comportement altruiste de ces entreprises a affecté leur performance à différents niveaux de normes altruistes au sein de leur réseau. En utilisant une approche analytique multiniveaux et des données de population issues de réseaux stratégiques suédois, nous avons découvert des effets modérateurs transversaux significatifs qui expliquaient la variation de la performance au niveau des entreprises. Les résultats montrent que les entreprises participant à ces réseaux stratégiques tirent un meilleur profit de leur altruisme, tandis que les membres d’autres types de réseaux affichent, d’une manière générale, des niveaux élevés d’altruisme. Il semble donc que les comportements altruistes soient récompensés relativement à une norme générale des réseaux. Le potentiel d’une bonne performance dépend donc de l’harmonisation entre le comportement altruiste d’une entreprise et le niveau général d’altruisme dans son réseau.

Abstract [en]

Despite the possibility of burnout resulting from dynamics in firms' upper echelons, little if any work has focused on chief executive officer's (CEO's) burnout and firm performance. Drawing on managerial discretion theory, this article analyzes the influence of CEO burnout on firm performance and the moderating roles of the individual (CEO locus of control), structural power (CEO duality and CEO tenure), and organizational characteristics (size, age, and resource availability) related to managerial discretion. Using a sample of 156 CEOs in Swedish firms, we find a negative association between CEOs who report higher burnout and firm performance. Our results confirm that CEO duality and resource availability ameliorate and firm size exacerbates the negative association between CEO burnout and firm performance. Contrary to our expectations, CEO locus of control, CEO tenure, and firm age do not influence this relationship. We discuss the implications of our research for upper echelons theory and strategic leadership theory.
