A sample size of253 was selected through accidental sampling technique from two telecommunication companies in Lagos. Instruments used for data collection are: cognitive emotional response questionnaire (CERQ), self-esteem and the proactive attitude scales. Pearson correlation and t-test were used to test the hypotheses generated. Findings revealed significant relationship among proactive attitude, emotion focused coping strategy and problem focused coping strategy. Self-esteem significantly influenced the choice of emotional- focused coping strategy. Age of employees was also found to be a factor in the type of coping strategy adopted. Based on these, it implies that adjustment of employees largely depend on personal factors they bring to the workplace.
