ABSTRACT

Innovative behavior is very important for companies engaged in the creative industry. Innovative behavior can be caused by optimism, and optimism occurs because of creative self-efficacy. The purpose of this study was to examine the mediating function of optimism on the relationship between creative self-efficacy and innovative behavior. This study used an ex-post facto design. The research subjects were 101 employees of the creative industry who were taken through incidental sampling techniques. The instruments used were innovative work behavior, creative self-efficacy, and Life Orientation Test-Revised (LOT-R). The data were analyzed using the Mediated Regression Analysis (MRA) technique. The results showed that there was a positive influence between creative self-efficacy on innovative behavior, but the relationship was not mediated by optimism. It can be concluded that creative self-efficacy has a direct effect on innovative behavior and not through optimism.
