Abstract

The relationship of self-esteem, role stress, and job satisfaction among sales and advertising managers is examined. Role stress is shown to be inversely related to job satisfaction for both groups. High self-esteem was found to lessen the role stress felt by the manager, thereby indirectly affecting job satisfaction. Self-esteem, however, did not relate to job satisfaction directly nor did it moderate the relationship between role stress and job satisfaction.
