Abstract (2. Language): 
The concept of organizational citizen behaviour (OCB) has grown in popularity in the literature, and has received a great deal of theoretical and empirical study. However, various authors have emphasized the need of gaining a greater understanding of the antecedents of each dimension that makes up this construct, as few authors have focused on these aspects (Podsakoff et al., 2000). Hence, this study aims at analyzing the individualized consideration of leadership, the innovative organizational climate and the proactive personality, as possible antecedents of change-oriented and altruist organizational citizenship behaviors, by means of a revision and extension of the main studies that have dealt with such constructs. In this sense, the present study develops various propositions, derived from a conceptual model, whose aim is to advance the understanding related with OCB antecedents, so that future research can test them from an empirical point of view, using qualitative or quantitative methods.
Abstract (Original Language): 
El concepto de comportamiento de ciudadanía organizativa (CCO) ha adquirido un creciente interés en la literatura, materializándose en una amplia variedad de estudios teóricos y empíricos. No obstante, se ha señalado la necesidad de profundizar en los antecedentes propios de cada una de las dimensiones que integran dicho constructo, dado que pocos autores se han centrado en esos aspectos (Podsakoff et al., 2000). En consecuencia, el presente estudio pretende analizar la consideración individualizada del liderazgo transformacional, el clima organizativo innovador y la personalidad proactiva del individuo como posibles antecedentes de dos de las dimensiones que integran los comportamientos de ciudadanía organizativa: los comportamientos orientados al cambio y los altruistas, en base a una revisión y extensión de los principales estudios que han abarcado dichos constructos. En este sentido, se desarrolla un modelo conceptual cuyo objetivo es profundizar sobre estos antecedentes para que investigaciones futuras puedan probar desde un punto de vista empírico, las proposiciones señaladas utilizando métodos cuantitativos o cualitativos.
