Prof. Karoline Strauss, ESSEC Business School, draws on her research with Sharon Parker and Deirdre O’Shea to determine if and when showing initiative might drain employees’ resources and lead to stress, and how companies can manage it.
Employees who take a proactive approach at work – who speak up with suggestions, try to bring about improvements, and take initiative – generally perform better, are more satisfied with their job, and progress more quickly in their career. For organizations, a proactive workforce which anticipates changes and is willing to contribute to innovation is seen as a competitive advantage. So how can companies and organisations nurture proactivity and develop an effective training policy and culture to make it happen?
Prof. Karoline Strauss, ESSEC Business School, explores the grey area between negotiating the i-deal – and actually securing it.
