Abstract

This capstone research shows that the workforce is changing, and that societal narcissism, fueled by social networking technology, can become a strong negative force within organizations. Employees displaying societal narcissism will exhibit behaviors of exaggerated self-importance, self-promotion, and a sense of entitlement which can negatively impact teamwork, morale and ultimately productivity. This capstone research examined leadership styles and strategies to identify those that would be effective with a growing me-centered' workforce. It was determined that a transformational emotionally intelligent leadership style would be flexible and the most effective with the emerging narcissist workforce.
