ABSTRACT
Career plateauing induces stress. Coping responses to this stress are identified. Individual and organizational variables which may modify these coping responses are presented. A model which incorporates these moderators predicts the coping response choices of plateaued individuals and whether these responses should have a positive or negative effect on the organization.
