Presented by Hector Martinez, Lecturer in the Management Department, UK Gatton College of Business and Economics
Proactive personality (Bateman & Crant, 1993) has been one of the few personality measures that have been found to correlate with job and career success (Seibert, Crant, & Kraimer, 1999; Seibert, Kraimer, & Crant, 2001). In this presentation, the concept and measure of proactive personality will be presented, along with some of the research findings that provide evidence for its role in how employees successfully enter organizations, perform in organizations, and establish long-term career success. The practical implication of proactive personality (i.e. its intentional development) will also be explored, and finally, some time will be provided so participants can interact in breakout rooms to identify personal developmental opportunities. For discussion, video capacity preferred, audio capacity required.
