Kočandrlová, Kristýna ; Niederlová, Markéta (advisor) ; Letovancová, Eva (referee)
The thesis concerns a topic of work engagement of individuals on managerial positions within a context of selected factors that positively influence such an engagement. Factors that keep those individuals on a imaginary line further from potential negative consequences, e.g. burnout syndrome, are elaborated. A theoretical part aims to elaborate a field of personality of manager, a theoretical background of work engagement, its theories and concepts and eventually concrete moderating factors stated in literature. An empirical part introduces a research mapping those moderating factors of managers within the Czech population. The goal is to find out which factors positively influence their work engagement. In regard of a connection between the work engagement and stress there is an additional research goal aiming to find out which strategies help managers to decrease their stress level. Based on gathered data 6 factors positively influencing the work engagement were arised: social support, job autonomy, variety of tasks, goal achievement, feedback and work meaningfulness; and four factors helping to decrease the stress level: analysis of situation, problem- focused coping, distance and physical activity. Key words: Work engagement, manager, moderating factors
The effectivity of sociomapping intervention for selected charateristics of work teams
Tetour, Vlastimil ; Niederlová, Markéta (advisor) ; Höschlová, Eva (referee)
Diploma thesis strives to identify the effectiveness of sociomapping in relation to selected charakteristics of work groups and teams. Literature review section defines the theoretical background of group and teamwork, which is being followed by the topics of team states and processes, team communication, mental models, team climate and teamwork effectivity. The final part focuses on team interventions, ways of evaluating their effectiveness and introduces specific aspects of sociomapping. The empirical part uses quantitative research approach, which analyzes the relationship between the method of sociomapping and its effect on the frequency of team communication, shared mental models in the form of the difference between the optimal and current frequency of communication and team climate. The sociomapping intervention is expected to have an effect on team performance in the form of higher hotel rating and team performance assessment. Both values were measured before and after the intervention. It is expected, that the frequency of team communication, the difference between optimal and current frequency of communication and team climate will behave as mediators. The results showed that sociomapping intervention is positively related to hotel rating (p = 0.014), but not to team performance...
Sport confidence and its role in sports performance
Tesařová, Monica ; Niederlová, Markéta (advisor) ; Šípek, Jiří (referee)
The main goal of the thesis is to build upon the existing research literature and to explore the relationship of sport confidence and sports performance, among which a positive correlation is often found. The theoretical part summarizes the present findings regarding this connection, as well as how sport confidence generally works, what constructs it relates to, or how it is measured. In the empirical part, quantitative research on a sample of Sri Lankan swimmers between 17 and 19, executed using the Sport-Confidence Inventory (SCI; Vealey, Knight, 2002), is then presented. Its results showed that participants scoring high at least in one of the three SCI subscales were performing better, regardless of how well the other components were developed, as opposed to participants whose scores were moderate in all the three subscales. The results also pointed to significant differences between the genders, where it showed that men generally scored higher on the level of sport confidence. Series of recommendations for trainers and psychologists working with athletes, but also for potential follow-up studies, can be drawn from the outcomes. Keywords: sport-confidence, multidimensionality of confidence, performance prediction, competitive swimming, SCI
Post-traumatic stress disorder related to the childbirth: risk factors and diagnostics
Ženíšková, Karolína ; Takács, Lea (advisor) ; Niederlová, Markéta (referee)
About 4 % women in general population and up to 19 % women in at-risk population suffer from PTSD related to childbirth. The main risk factors for postpartum PTSD are negative birth experience and obstetric emergencies. However, the findings about risk factors and prevalence rates vary across studies, which is mainly due to the inconsistency in the diagnostics of postpartum PTSD. Researchers use various PTSD measures that differ in the number and type of symptoms monitored and many of these measures do not cover all DSM criteria for PTSD. Furthermore, the PTSD diagnostic criteria have been significantly modified in the new DSM-5 and the existing instruments need to be revised. The first part of the thesis presents the concept of PTSD related to childbirth. Special attention is paid to the risk factors identified in previous research and to the analysis of PTSD diagnostic and screening measures used in the postpartum context. The aim of the second part of the thesis is to evaluate the psychometric properties of the unpublished Childbirth-Related PTSD Questionnaire on a sample of 620 Czech women. The factor validity of the scale, the internal consistency of the total scale and the subscales resulting from the factor analysis; and the criterion validity of the instrument are verified. With regard to...

Prediction of selected personality characteristics based on digital records publicly available on the Internet.
Šťastná, Markéta ; Stehlík, Luděk (advisor) ; Niederlová, Markéta (referee)
This master thesis investigates linkage between personality characteristics and digital records on the Internet. The theoretical part is focused on selected theories of personality traits, brief description of social networks and on current studies connected with relationship between digital records and personality characteristics. Empirical research is dedicated to test interdependences between user profiles at the LinkedIn and Hogan's MVPI and HDS using the research sample (N=238, after reduction N=129 due to limited number of LinkedIn users). Based on LinkedIn data which were reduced to 6 new variables, results describe statistically significant models predicting scores for some scales of MVPI and HDS. However, maximum adjusted R2 was only 15,5% for the best regression model which was predicting Altruistic scale (MVPI).

Sleep disorders in posttraumatic stress disorder
Vodičková, Denisa ; Niederlová, Markéta (advisor) ; Najbrtová, Kristina (referee)
This bachelor thesis is focused on describing of the posttraumatic stress disorder and its symptoms with special focus on sleeping disorders. The research part is preceded by the theoretical part. This part is focused on three areas - posttraumatic stress disorder (hereafter PTSD), sleeping disorders and treatment. The first part is dedicated to the definition of the concepts of stress, trauma and PTSD itself. Further on, it focused on describing of the treatment, pharmacological and foremost psychotherapy. In the Czech Republic, the area of sleep disorders in PTSD is yet to be explored. Therefore, a correlation study has been proposed in order to reveal possible relationship between PTSD symptoms and sleep quality in individuals who have been diagnosed with PTSD. The data will be obtained by a questionnaire survey and hopefully, I will enable further research in this area in the future.
