La proactivité de carrière: un processus d'anticipation ou de planification d'événements ?

Abstract : Researches on career proactivity face difficulties due to the reluctance of individuals to plan for their professional future. Career planning seems to be an obligation that employees meet more or less consentingly, in order to satisfy managerial expectations. This initial observation led us to present an alternative conceptualization of career proactivity. Beside the usual perspective, which mainly considers proactivity as a planning process, another perspective consists in presenting proactivity mainly as an anticipatory process (Grant et Ashford, 2008 ; Bindl et Parker, 2010 ; Fuller et al., 2012). Based on these two conceptual approaches and on interviews with a sample of twenty-five engineers, this paper aims to deeper understand proactive career behaviors. This qualitative study, drawing on the critical incident method, leads to a better understanding of the proactive anticipation process. The results show that, in an unstable and unpredictable professional world, this “anticipatory approach” is probably more workable that the planning approach.
