    What makes some people more likely to initiate positive change within their organizations? Can this behaviour be influenced by management?

    Employee proactivity has largely been understood in terms employees changing their environment or changing themselves. In this novel study Wu offers an alternative lens through which to examine such behaviour – the concept of attachment theory.

    Wu integrates the current understanding of motivational factors in shaping proactive workers, through his introduction to attachment theory, and development of it as a theoretical framework.

    This compelling approach provides academics with a new way of thinking about employee behaviour whilst also acting as a guide for practitioners and managers.

    Dr Chia-Huei Wu is an associate professor at Durham University. His research focuses on proactive behaviour, work and personality development, and subjective well-being. He earned his PhD degree at the University of Western Australia.
