Abstract:The main goal of this research paper is to investigate contextual and personal antecedents of innovative behavior. As existing studies mostly explore determinant constructs separately, the aim of the current study is to investigate the independent and joint contribution of personal characteristic - learning goal orientation and job characteristic – job autonomy to innovative behavior. A questionnaire was administered with the sample of 456 teaching staff. Hierarchical regression analysis confirmed the positive effect of job autonomy on innovative behavior, with the learning goal orientation mediating the effect of job autonomy on innovative behavior. In the discussion the limitations of the study and practical implications are discussed.
