  1. Proactivity

    In organizational behavior and industrial/organizational psychology, proactivity or proactive behavior by individuals refers to anticipatory, change-oriented and self-initiated behavior in situations, particularly in the workplace. Proactive behavior involves acting in advance of a future situation, rather than just reacting. It means taking control and making things happen rather than just adjusting to a situation or waiting for something to happen. Proactive employees generally do not need to be asked to act, nor do they require detailed instructions. Proactive behavior can be contrasted with other work-related behaviors, such as proficiency, i.e. the fulfillment of predictable requirements of one’s job, or adaptivity, the successful coping with and support of change initiated by others in the organization. In regard to the latter, whereas adaptivity is about responding to change, proactivity is about initiating change. Proactivity is not restricted to extra role performance behaviors. Employees can be proactive in their prescribed role. Likewise, behaviors labeled as organizational citizenship behavior can be carried out proactively or passively. For example, the altruistic OCB can be proactive in nature. Other OCBs concerned with the compliance with rules and expectations might even be incompatible with proactivity.
