In this research, we attempted to test the predictive power of job crafting and I-deals as employee proactive behaviors over team and individual level performance. Moreover, we also tested for the mediation of team resilience in the relationship between employee proactive behaviors and performance outcomes at both team and individual levels. We recruited full-time employees (N =254) who work in three different industries in Istanbul, Turkey. We collected our data in separate time settings. Findings from structural equation modeling analyses revealed that job crafting and I-deals predict performance outcomes in different strengths. Moreover, our results also emphasized that team resilience mediates certain relations between proactive behaviors and performance outcomes. With this research, we substantiate our arguments by building on different theoretical perspectives (e.g., proactivity, resilience research streams) and make contributions over previous research by going beyond the Western contexts. Our findings emphasized the practical importance of I-deals and job crafting for organizational settings. Further managerial implications and suggestions are discussed.
