This study aims to explore the relationship between authentic leadership and innovative work behavior, while examining the mediating effect of employee’s thriving at work. During November-December 2023, a survey was conducted of 150 employees working in the creative industry in Kabupaten Kebumen. Most of the respondents worked in the food, handicraft, and fashion industries. Using Smart PLS 2, this study demonstrates the measurement model and structural model assessment. The result showed that authentic leadership shares a positive influence on innovative work behaviour. In addition, according to specific indirect effect results, this research found that thriving at work has a significant mediating effect that channels authentic leadership and innovative work behaviour. The present study provides insight for SME managers regarding how to improve innovative work behaviour by considering authentic leadership styles and improving thriving at work.
