One aspect that should be considered in the formation of adaptive work behavior is the development of an innovative climate that encourages employees to create new ideas. This adaptive work behavior includes the willingness to generate ideas, promote and introduce this idea to others and the ability to realize it. This innovation is currently being carried out intensively by universities. However, not many studies have realized that innovative climate plays a dominant role to achieve adaptive work behavior. The purpose of this study was to examine the involvement of innovative climate moderation roles on the effect of implementing leadership style to reach subordinate adaptive performance. The sample in this study was staff at state universities in Semarang with a minimum response rate of 80%. Purposive proportional sampling technique was used as the sampling technique. This research method uses quantitative designs that are tested through SEM. The results of this study are expected to be a reference and input to stakeholders in higher education regarding the importance of innovative climate that must be developed if you want to realize the innovative work behavior of all staff. To overcome research limitations, it will be very beneficial if further research examines the mechanism of transformational leadership on adaptive performance with a longitudinal approach.
