Abstract It can be inferred that self-esteem and anxiety will play a part in the attachment process (Feeney, Noller & Hanrahan, 1994). Participants with high self-esteem are generally expected to correlate with secure attachment styles, the converse also being true. It is also predicted that insecurely attached participants trying to satisfy unmet attachment needs will suffer from elevated psychophysiological stress reactions and poor work performance. These individual aspects are reflected at an organisational level via the approaches taken to involve individuals and the perceived threat or support provided. In order for a quality approach to be established, the individual requires at the organisational level that Argyris' (1982) espoused versus in-use paradigm be addressed. This study provides insight into the individual concepts of attachment theory, anxiety, individual performance and psychophysiological assessment and how this can be used in an organisational context to develop quality outcomes via a community, which has a central focus on unconditional acceptance and growth.
