ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of individual innovative behaviours on the role conflict and Role ambiguity of workers and the mediating role of Conflict with Co-Workers in this effect. The sample of the study was comprised of 387 participants chosen from among the workers of public and private health sector active in Mersin Province with Simple Random Sampling method. Data were obtained with face to face survey method. When analysing data obtained in the study, Statistical Package for Social Sciences (AMOS and SPSS) was used. Within this framework, when determining the relations between the variables, statistical methods of correlation analysis, hierarchic regression analysis and Sobel test were used. As a result of the research, it was found that innovative behaviour affects role conflict positively and conflict with co-workers has a mediating effect in this relationship. However, no meaningful relationship was found between innovative behaviour and role ambiguity. That the study revealed individual innovative behaviours in organizations may have positive results as well as negative results and they may affect role conflict and conflict with co-workers positively is one of the most important findings of this study
