dc.description.abstract The aim of this research was to investigate the theoretical-empirical fit between three psychological well-being constructs, namely sense of coherence, learned resourcefulness and self-actualisation in the work situation. Significant intercorrelations were found. Confirmatory factor analysis indicated a two-factor structure consisting of (1) self-actualisation and (2) sense of coherence / learned resourcefulness. The results confirm that, of these three concepts, self-actualisation forms a separate construct within the psychological well-being (and salutogenic) paradigms, but the results did not indicate a good fit between the theoretical model and the empirical reality of psychological well-ness. It is hoped that awareness of this information will facilitate more effective labour relations and handling of disputes in organisations. en
