Abstract: There is an abundance of research that supports the relationship between proactive personality and work engagement and between work engagement and innovative work behaviors. However, there has been no study that examined work engagement as a mediator of the relationship between proactive personality and innovative work behaviors. Similarly, there has been no study that examined work engagement as a mediator between the personality traits of curiosity and exploration, with innovative work behaviorsThis research examines among other things, the compatibility between proactive personalities of employees, with transformational leadership behaviors of their superiors i.e. the superior-subordinate fit. It also examines the personality trait of openness to experience as a moderator affecting the dependent variable of innovative work behaviors. This study also investigates the possible moderating effect of transformational leadership on the relationship between proactive personality and work engagement. It is hypothesized that when proactive people have superiors that exhibit transformational leadership behaviors, they become even more engaged in their work. Similarly, employees with personality characteristics of curiosity and exploration, become more engaged when they are working under superiors who practice more transformational leadership behaviors, compared with employees whose superiors exhibit less transformational leadership behaviors. It is finally hypothesized that openness to experience will positively moderate the relationship between work engagement and innovative work behaviors such that people who are more open to experience will exhibit more innovative work behaviors when engagedAt this stage, this represents a conceptual paper. A full quantitative study will be undertaken which will include instruments in the form of self-administered questionnaires distributed among employees involved in the aviation industry in the UAE
