A model of the destination management comes from the tourism policy of a destination. In South Bohemia, generally the operative marketing management of a destination prevails, with a focus only on a few tools of marketing communication.
These DMOs try to use a range of tools of destination management such as a strategic planning, close cooperation with enterprises etc. However, in general, the DMOs in South Bohemia still fulfill the role of a destination marketing organization. Conclusion In this part of the paper the most important issues from the research are summarized. In the next part a model is proposed based on the conclusions and findings of the research that should result in more efficient activities on the part of DMOs in South Bohemia.
The principal activity of DMOs in South Bohemia is still the marketing communication of a destination product. There is insufficient strategic planning of marketing activities and marketing communication instruments are used randomly and inefficiently. From the structure of most DMOs in South Bohemia there is the issue that the establishment of the DMOs is primarily initiated by public authorities municipalities, regional authority. From the conclusions presented above the proposal of a model for the role of a DMO in destination management was created.
The basic steps of a process are defined as follows: 1 Networking of stakeholders. It is necessary to create a functioning net of all stakeholders municipality, regional authority, enterprises, NGOs incl. Principals of real destination management are efficient and applicable especially at a local level. From that level the net of key stakeholders should be built. In the middle point the local DMO must stand as a main coordinator. The net of stakeholders in a tourism destination at the local level is shown in Figure 2.

The most important activities for the tourism destination development were defined as cooperation and communication. These activities must be realized among all stakeholders for an efficient destination management, because the stakeholders are the basic building blocks of the whole process. The 3C activities cooperation, communication and coordination are represented in this model of destination management as pillars, on which the role of a DMO stands.
The role of a DMO in a destination management model is shown in Figure 3.

Erich Schmidt Verlag. Berlin, Journal of Travel Research. Hardiness appears as one aspect of the development of personal potential. Hardiness allows a person to tolerate a fatal anxiety accompanying the choice of the future uncertainty , but not the past constancy. The aim of the research was to test the linkage between hardiness and social-psychological adaptation, achievement motivation and life meaningful orientations of undergraduate students of psychology departments in Latvia.
Sample: participants. Age of participants: years. As diagnostic psychological tools were used a Hardiness Test of S. Maddi, adapted on the territory of Latvia by J. Shaplavska and I. Plotka ; test of Life Meaningful Orientations of D. Leontyev ; method of diagnosis of social- psychological adaptation of C. Rogers and R. Diamond; Achievement Motivation test of A. Mehrabian The obtained results showed statistically significant relationships. The correlations of hardiness and meaningfulness of life, life goals, social-psychological adaptation, and achievement motivation were found.
Conclusions and recommendations for teaching as well as for application in psychological practice are presented and discussed. Key words hardiness, commitment, challenge, control, achievement motivation, social-psychological adaptation, life meaningful orientations. Introduction According to D.
Policies & Information
Leontyev , personal potential is an integral characteristic of the personal maturity level, but the main phenomenon of personal maturity and a form of personal potential manifestation is the phenomenon of the personal self-determination. These adverse conditions can be defined by genetic characteristics, somatopathic diseases, but also can be defined by external adverse conditions. There are obviously unfavorable conditions for the personality formation, they may indeed fatally affect the development, but their influence can be overcome by the introduction of factors of extra dimensions in this system, primarily, by introduction of the self-determination on the basis of personal potential.
Phenomenology, reflecting different aspects of personal potential, in different approaches in foreign and Russian psychology was denoted by such concepts as will, strength, ego, internal support, locus of control, focus on the action, the will to meaning, etc. The most complete, in terms of D. Leontyev, this concept corresponds to such notion in foreign psychology as "hardiness" - "vitality", introduced by S. In terms of S. Maddi and D. Khoshaba Maddi S. According to S. Maddi, the first characteristic of "hardy" attitudes is a commitment - an important characteristic in regard to a self and the world and to the nature of the interaction between them, which gives strength and motivates a person to fulfillment, leadership, healthy pattern of thoughts and behavior.
The second "hardy" attitude is a control, or a tendency to think and behave as if there is a real opportunity to influence on the course of events, it is the quality that motivates the search for ways to influence on the outcomes of stressful changes, as a counterbalance to falling into the state of helplessness and passivity. Regulatee is acting, feeling able to prevail over the circumstances and withstand heavy moments of life.
Cognitively appreciating even tragic events such people reduce their value and thus reduce the traumatic effect. The generalized position of the subject of integral life determines his perception of any stressful event as not a blow of fate, the impact of uncontrollable forces, but as a natural phenomenon, as a result of the actions of others. The subject is sure that any difficult situation can be transformed so that it would be consistent with his life plans, will be somewhat helpful to him. The third "hardy" attitude, designated as a "challenge", helps a person to remain open to the environment and society.
To summarize, we can say that the "hardiness" is a special pattern of attitudes and skills which allow to turn the changes into opportunities. In foreign literature results of several researches, such as LaGreca , Solcava, I. They consider hardiness in connection with stress overcoming problems, adjustment - maladjustment within society, physical, psychical and social health.
A large number of researchers consider "hardiness" in connection with the problems of coping and adaptation-maladaptation in society, physical, mental and social health. Introduced by Kobasa , hardiness has emerged as a positive mediating variable in the field of stress research. Later, Kobasa et al found that hardiness protects against stress in two ways: by altering perceptions of stress and by mobilizing effective coping strategies. When high hardiness exists, difficult life events are transformed into opportunities for increased meaning in life Schwab, Hardy individuals have been found to be active, goal-oriented people approaching life with interest and excitement Rowe, , seeing themselves not as victims, but as active determinants of the consequences of change Kobasa, In the researches Florian V.
Researches Williams P. Sharpley Ch. Researches Solcova I. Leontyev and colleagues have conducted a study of the connection between hardiness and experience of the situation of uncertainty and anxiety. The study results have showed that among the respondents the risk acceptance is significantly higher then among those of the control group, and — according to the tendency — the whole hardiness measure is higher. Leontyev has made a conclusion that people, who often deal with existential problems and keep interest to them, have higher readiness to act in the conditions of uncertain outcome, anxiety and difficulties.
They have more confidence that everything happening is useful because it gives them experience Osin, Under the lead of D. Leontyev they have conducted the study of choice mechanism among the key variables of which the hardiness has been studied. The results showed that in the group having chosen uncertainty the level of general hardiness was significantly higher than in other groups. The same may be said on different levels of validity about separate components of hardiness — commitment, control and challenge. In other studies of D.
Leontyev they have exposed a negative correlative connection between hardiness and avoidance and social support search Leontyev, Raskazova, In the studies of E. Shaplavskaya, I. Plotka a, b, c, a of the connection between hardiness and coping behavior among students it was found the negative correlative connection between hardiness and avoidance. Furthermore, the same results were received while examining the servicemen of Latvian land forces in In a study J. Plotka, b, c, d aimed to examine the association of the components of hardiness and the scales of Questionnaire of Tolerance to Ambiguity Situations and strategies of coping behavior among members of rescue team, it was found that participants prefer to use such behavior strategies as aggressive action and strategy of avoidance.
It was also found that participants more prone to novelty, to the perception of unfamiliar situations as desirable; it means the preference of choice for a future in which there is always uncertainty. It cannot be predicted, even if one is planning something. It is a risk that is associated with any human action and to remove it rather difficult, but the choice of the future creates a certain potential and perspective for personal development.
The choice of the past, means withdrawal of awareness, attempt to preserve oneself, which cannot lead to success. Maddi himself considers the phenomenon, introduced by him, much wider, including it in the context of social ecology. And, most importantly, it is the factor, the internal resource that is subservient to human himself, it is what he can change and re-think, what contributes to the maintenance of physical, mental and social health, an attitude, which gives life value and meaning in all circumstances.
The mechanisms of psychic self-regulation and mental adaptation are switched on. People who prefer constructive reformative strategies turned out to be individuals with an optimistic outlook, stable positive self-esteem, and realistic approach to life and strongly expressed achieve motivation. People, who avoid the difficult situations, resort to psychological defense mechanisms, tend to "marching down social comparison," perceive the world as a source of dangers, they have low self-esteem, and their outlook is colored by pessimism Antsyferova, L.
So, in the center of attention are not only life problems, stress, crises and conflicts, but also the psychological reserves and personal potential, which are helping people to successfully overcome them. Hardiness is a kind of integrative psychological feature of personality, which includes the ability to take the challenge of destiny, and inner internal locus of control with the adoption of responsibility for current events, and focus, determination of action involvement in occurring events.
Aim of the study The aim of this study was to test the connection of hardiness and social psychological adaptation, achievement motivation, and life meaningful orientation of undergraduates of psychological faculties in Latvia. Participants The sample was participants. The age of participants was from 21 till Shaplavskaya and I. Results and dicsussion As a result of an empirical study which purpose was to find relationships between the severity of the components of hardiness with the scales of the questionnaire of life meaningful orientations, motivation of achievement and social-psychological adaptation of the students, the following results were obtained: 1.
The study showed that among the students it is observed correlation of hardiness with all scales of the test of life meaningful orientations, i. All correlations are positive. Thus, the students - participants of the study - have a goal or goals in life, perceive the process of life as interesting, emotionally rich and full of meaning, feel how productive and meaningful is their life, have an idea of self as a strong personality, have a belief that people are given control over their lives, to make decisions freely and to implement them.
As a whole, students with the formed system of life meaningful orientations have high hardiness. The results showed the correlation between hardiness and motivation to achieve in the group of participating students. It was found that with an increase of indicators of hardiness, the level of achievement motivation increases. This means that students can clearly monitor the results of their activity.
They have faith in their ability to cope with certain activities and have an idea of personal responsibility for their successes and failures. The students motivated by the success, while setting a goal, take into account the possibility of success as higher than the possibility of failure. The need for success - this need is satisfied not by proclaiming the success of a man, but by the process of bringing the work to completion.
People with developed need for success like the situations in which they can take responsibility for finding a solution to the problem, and that their achievements should be encouraged. But people motivated to fail in the first place think that they will not be able to achieve this goal. Hekhauzen H. Bandura A. In contrast, those who believe in their ability to solve the problem will be persistent in achieving goals despite obstacles. Bandura believes that those who have awareness of high self-efficacy, mentally imagine a good script, providing a positive drive to achieve the goal Modern psychology of motivation, The study found a correlation between hardiness and of social-psychological adaptation of the students participated in the research.
This explains the fact of influence of pronouncedness of hardiness on the process of active adaptation of the individual to environmental conditions. The higher the hardiness is, the process of adaptation for the individual goes without much difficulties and obstacles. According to E. Zavialova , social-psychological adaptation is the process of organizing social interaction and contributes to the fullest realization of personal potential, which is an aggregate of personal resources and level of self-discovery, providing a process of self-regulation and self-realization in the changed conditions of existence.
According to T. Shibutani, each personality is characterized by a combination of tricks to cope with difficulties, and these techniques can be considered as a form of adaptation refers to the more stable solutions - well-organized way to deal with typical problems. This confirms that high level of hardiness promotes greater adaptation to changing social environment and is a means to successful adaptation. And as A. Maklakov said, the greater the adaptive capacity, the greater the likelihood that the human body maintain a normal working capacity and high performance under the influence of psychogenic factors of the external environment.
Most students participated in the study showed high level of pronouncedness of components of hardiness commitment, control, challenge , so the students tend to develop, drawing knowledge from their experience. They are convinced that everything that happens to them promotes their development and are prepared to act in the absence of guarantees for success at their own risk. Students have a desire to influence the outcome of an event, choose their own activities, their own way. They enjoy their own activities, feel confident.
In the practice of social psycho-diagnostics hardiness can be used as an integral characteristic of the personality, replacing diagnosis of individual or local components. In the practice of a social psychologist, in a professional orientation, by determining the level of hardiness it can be forecasted the professional fit and social success in those areas where there is social tension, risk, extreme or semi-extreme situations.
Based on the empirical data, we can recommend to psychologists, in order to improve the hardiness in psycho-correction and developmental work with students, to work with meanings teach to prioritize, set goals, to feel the master of life , to form attitude toward themselves, to master the styles of self-regulation.

Implicit attitudes were measured by implicit measurements based on paradigm of affective priming. The obtained data showed some statistically significant relatinships. The results of implicit and explicit measurements show the partial coincidence of data. The created research scheme allows to reveal new data significant for deeper understanding of relationship between two large ethnos living in Latvia.
Keywords ethnic attitude, ethnicity, implicit measurements, explicit measurements, ethnic identity, ethnic tolerance. Trying to understand and analyze people for their personal values and cultural diversity will help to mobilize and construct a caring society. Education in multicultural environment is an opportunity to improve interethnic relations and to help all students gain the knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to take part in cross- cultural interactions. The tendency of growth of the number of foreign students exists. Literature survey The demographic build-up of European societies changed dramatically in the previous century.
The population increase in many European countries is caused by immigration. Attitudes are widely studied within social psychology. Among them three main models can be distinguished. The most popular three- component model so-called ABC model of attitudes considers them to consist of cognitive, affective and behavioral behavioral intensions components Eagly, Chaiken, Two-component model considers attitudes as comprising affective and cognitive components, which in turns affect behavioral intentions Levin, Levin, So, there is no consensus about the structure of an attitude within social psychology.
As in present study we deal with ethnic attitudes that representatives of majority group have towards minority group and vice versa, it seems quite reasonable to stick to the most widespread definition of an attitude as a tendency which is expressed by evaluating a particular object with some degree of favor or disfavor Eagly, Chaiken, The attitudes towards own and other ethnic groups are considered to be the result of a social categorization process Tajfel, In ethnic attitudes the relation towards the own ethnic community is expressed.
In the studies of ethnic attitudes conducting on the territory of Baltic States the main attention was focused on the relations of majority ethnic group and Russian-speaking minority and on the process of building and change of social and ethnic identity of minority group. These studies and obtained results are of the prior importance in Latvia and Estonia, because as a result of political and social changes, taken place during the last century in these and other former Soviet bloc countries, Russian-speaking minority composes the substantial part of population, and expresses the traits specific for majority group.
One of the key concepts of these researches is the concept of ethnic identity. Such consideration of identity makes possible to understand the other qualities of identity, for instance, how are the ascribed identity and acquired identity formed in the process of socialisation of personality in the context of definite environment and historical situation. In researches devoted to the social adaptation in different cultural environment and ethnic identity of young people the connection between social adjustment — maladjustment and ethnic identity was in the focus of attention Plotka, Vidnere, Blumenau, Strode, Results of the study provide information for an adequate choice of integration methods in different cultures.
The analysis of researches of ethnic tolerance in Baltic States allows to conclude that, on the one hand, in connection with the emergence of the problem of formation a new economic framework for interaction between different ethnic groups living in Latvia, there emerge a qualitatively new situation for the formation of tolerant ethnic relations. It can be concluded that personal level of ethnic relations in Latvia has a higher degree of tolerance than intergroup level Plotka, Blumenau, Vidnere, On the other hand, based on the researches of ethnic aspects of social integration and the impact of economic factors on these processes, it can be concluded that to date the integration of society in the context of economic processes has advanced far ahead compared to the early 90s.
As can be seen, the majority of researches of ethnic attitudes traditionally are conducted with the help of explicit measurements. Ethnic attitudes and relationships present challenges for researches because of presence of self-presentation motives, high level of social desirability which mean that participants would not honestly report true attitudes they have. In the European and American social psychological researches implicit measures are widely applied for the assessment of such constructs of social cognition, as persuasions, in-group favoritism, self-esteem, attitudes, stereotypes, racial attitudes, etc.
But the domain of ethnic attitudes seems to be less studied, than, for example, racial attitudes. The application of implicit measurements in researches of ethnic attitudes has been started in Latvia in Plotka, Igonin, Blumenau,a,b. As an implicit measure the experimental procedure based on the paradigm of unconscious emotional priming was applied.
To date four series of experiments have been conducted. This measurement is used along with explicit self-evaluative. The results contribute into understanding of the nature of attitudes, their functions and the nature of social cognition in whole. Aim of the study The aim of the present study was to exposure ethnic attitudes of Latvian and Russian students, using the explicit and implicit research methods, and to analyze the correspondents of ethnic attitudes, detected by these measures. Participants students of social sciences departments of Latvian HEIs Russians and 74 Latvian with normal state of health voluntary participated in the experiment.
Materials and methods 1. One indicator of the transformation of ethnic identity - is the growth of ethnic intolerance. The degree of ethnic tolerance of a respondent estimated based on the following criteria: the level of "negativity" in relation to their own and other ethnic groups, the threshold of emotional response to alien ethnic environment, the severity of aggressive and hostile reactions in relation to other groups.
The questionnaire contains six scales, which correspond to the following types of ethnic identity: 1. Ethnic indifference is the erosion of ethnic identity, which is expressed in the uncertainty of ethnicity, irrelevance of ethnicity. In multi-ethnic society a positive ethnic identity is a norm and inherent to the vast majority. It gives an optimum balance of tolerance towards one's own and other ethnic groups, which allows to view it, on the one hand, as a condition of self-sufficiency and stable existence of ethnic groups, on the other hand, as a condition of peaceful cross-cultural interaction in a multi-ethnic world.
Strengthening the destructiveness of inter-ethnic relations is caused by the transformations of ethnic identity to the type of hyper identity, which corresponds to the following three scales of the questionnaire: 4. Ethnic egoism, Ethnic isolationism, Ethnic fanaticism are the stages of amplification of ethnic identity, expressed in the emergence of discriminatory forms of inter-ethnic relations. In the inter-ethnic interaction hyper identity manifested in various forms of ethnic intolerance from irritation in response to the presence of members of other ethnic groups, to upholding the policy of restricting their rights and opportunities, aggressive and violent actions against other groups, and even genocide Soldatova, Stimulus material of questionnaire consists of statements which reflect both the general attitude toward the world and other people, and attitudes in different spheres of interaction where tolerance and intolerance of an individual can become apparent.
List of figures
Special attention is paid to ethnic tolerance - intolerance the relation to people of different races and ethnic groups, to own ethnic group, cultural distance score. Three subscales of questionnaire designed to diagnose such aspects of tolerance, as ethnic tolerance, social tolerance, and tolerance as a trait of personality. In - 's. Implicit Measurement Implicit attitudes were measured by implicit measurements based on paradigm of affective masked priming.
The experimental scheme of implicit measurement includes the procedure of affective masked priming on nine intervals of stimulus onset asynchronies which allows assessing the changes of implicit attitudes in the frameworks of automatic and controlled reactions. In this procedure target stimuli positively or negatively accented words are preceded by unseen prime-stimuli in this case — names of ethnic groups.
The stimuli were presented in the following sequence: Fixation point — msec. The tasks of lexical classification were given to the participants. Results 1. Results of Explicit Measurements Tab. The results are presented in the Table. Results of Implicit Measurements According to the basic assumption of the affective priming, if valences of prime-stimuli and target stimuli coincide, it is facilitate the fulfillment of the task. It is assumed that the participant has the formed positive or negative attitude to the ethnic group under investigation and to the own ethnic group.
The reaction time RT of the participant was fixed, so, positive or negative attitudes manifest themselves in the different reaction times of the respondents. Negative reaction time shifts correspond to positive attitudes, positive shifts correspond to negative attitudes. Frequency analysis by Pearson Chi-Square and Fisher transformation for the attitudes, defined by reaction time shift was conducted: the percent ratios of respondents with positive and negative attitudes were compared.
Discussion and Conclusions 1. Notwithstanding that the Ethnic Fanaticism is regarded as one of the extreme forms of ethnic identity hyper identity given classification is still an abstraction, which was formulated based on the great amount of empirical material. The real content and status of particular type of ethnic identity cannot be defined based only on one trait or characteristic. In combination with other characteristics it can compose transitional types of identity.
The concept of ethnic identity is of great importance for Latvians. This result, on the one hand, is in line with one of the most consistent findings in the field of interethnic relationships — liberalizing effect of education — higher educated individuals turned out to be less prejudiced than lower educated individuals. Shuman et al. The educational effect remains strong after controlling for other individual characteristics, such as social class, age, etc. On the other hand, ethnic relationships are an area of presence of self-presentations and social desirability motives.
As has been mentioned above, the participants are not always inclined to show their real attitude. The interpretation of obtained results is dependent of how we understand the nature of attitude, but nevertheless, it requires additional investigations. Positive Ethnic Identity positively correlates with Ethnic Tolerance and negatively linked with hyper identity.
Positive ethnic identity is considered as a norm, so, it gives an optimum balance of tolerance towards one's own and other ethnic groups, which allows to view it, on the one hand, as a condition of self-sufficiency and stable existence of ethnic groups, on the other hand, as a condition of peaceful cross-cultural interaction in a multi-ethnic world. Ethnic Tolerance is negatively linked with hyper identity. Application of implicit measurement in social psychological researches gives more information for understanding the nature, structure and functioning of attitudes.
The results of implicit measurements help to make deeper analysis of information concerns different social constructs, it can be also useful in prediction non-declared behaviors in the areas of high level social desirability, such as inter-ethnic relations, voting, and realization of social programs.

As the markets in transitional economies open and grow, major challenges and opportunities arise for multinational firms entering these markets, local firms facing these new competitors, and policymakers seeking to increase the ability of all firms to compete fairly and efficiently.
Yet despite the important questions transition economies pose for policymakers and companies seeking to enter and compete in these new markets, there has been a relative absence of systematic research on these concerns. This book seeks to fill a gap in the existing literature by offering a pioneering and comprehensive examination of issues that have developed as markets in transitional economies become more deregulated and open.
The topics covered are divided into five main sections, and the individual chapters are written by some of the world's leading academic experts on these issues. After an opening section which discusses the marketing issues and challenges multinational and local firms face in transitional economies, the next three sections offer detailed treatments of changing consumer behavior, measuring and improving the marketing orientation of firms, and implementing and managing distribution channels.
The fifth and final section is devoted to firm strategies and tactics, examined variously from the perspective of multinational firms entering these new markets, from the viewpoint of existing local firms facing new competitive challenges from global entrants, and from the perspective of local firms seeking to establish themselves in foreign markets where they have not previously competed. Most of the individual chapters are revised versions of papers originally presented at a conference sponsored by the William Davidson Institute, which focuses on research related to emerging and transitional economies, and have not previously appeared in published form.
Thus, the book is a unique collection of cutting-edge scholarship on the various aspects of marketing in transitional economies. It will prove valuable reading to academics, policymakers, and international business strategists. This volume is a milestone toward developing a more comprehensive understanding of corporate financial performance. The authors review both the factors that cause the financial performance of some firms to be better than others at a point in time and also those factors that influence the trajectory of firm financial performance over time.
In addressing these issues, the book considers theoretical and empirical work on financial performance, drawn from several literatures, as well as presenting empirical results. The goals of the book are to improve the understanding of firm financial performance by developing a more integrated framework and to develop a research agenda based on what is learned from this research. Coauthored by two of today's leading authorities on this hot new field, The Social Commerce Handbook distills the real-world experience of successful social commerce businesses--from Apple to Zappos--into 20secrets for turning "Likes" into "Buys".
