Abstract: This study examines the role of proactive behaviour
in the relationship between learning goal orientation
and employee creative performance. Specically,
we develop and test a model that links learning goal
orientation through three dierent types of proactive
behaviours (i.e. proactive work behaviour, proactive
strategic behaviour and proactive person-environment
t behaviour) (Parker & Collins, 2010) to employee
creativity. In doing so, this research enhances our understanding
of the impact of dierent proactive behaviours
on employee outcomes and it examines some
of the underlying mechanisms of the relationship between
learning goal orientation and employee creative
performance. In addition, we test whether these three
types of proactive behaviours have a dierential impact
on creative performance. This research studies the actions
that employees can take themselves to manage
their creative process. Hypotheses were tested using a
survey design on a sample of 378 employee-supervisor
and employee-peer dyads. Results show that employee
learning goal orientation impacts supervisor-rated and
peer-rated creativity and that these eects are mediated
by the three types of proactive behaviours.
Results also show that the three types of proactive
behaviour have a dierential impact on creative behaviour,
with a positive correlation between proactive
strategic behaviour and employee creative behaviour
on the one hand and a negative correlation between
proactive person environment t behaviour and employee
creative behaviour on the other hand. This emphasizes
the importance of proactive behaviour in the
creative process and shows that proactive behaviour
is not only a strategy that facilitates individual learning,
but also a useful resource for achieving creative
outcomes. Reference: Parker, S. K., & Collins, C. G.
