The study evaluated the relation among positive psychological capital, organizational citizenship behaviors, and counterproductive work behaviors, through a cross-section correlational study of a sample of 137 workers aged 21 to 63 (m=36.51; de=9.71), from different companies in Lima. Results showed direct relations between psychological capital and organizational citizenship behaviors, as well as inverse relations between psychological capital and counterproductive work behaviors. Also, differences were found within the variables of age and total work experience. These findings contribute evidence regarding the importance of the development of psychological capital within organizations, in order to foster desirable behaviors in the workplace. The final section of the study includes limitations and recommendations.
