Catharina Vogt studied psychology with the main foci on Work and Organizational Psychology as well as Clinical Psychology.  In the course of her PhD, she examined effects of horizontal and vertical respect in work settings.

After finishing High School in 2003, Catharina Vogt studied psychology at the university TU Dresden with the main foci on Work and Organizational Psychology as well as Clinical Psychology. Her minor field of study was Business Administration. She wrote her diploma thesis about stress and strain at workplaces in the metal and electrical industry.

Catharina Vogt is a member of the RespectResearchGroup since autumn 2011. In July 2013, she and Daniel Gläser took over the RespectResearchGroup vice director position and from August 2015 to July 2017 the director position. In the course of her doctoral thesis she explored the difference between horizontal and vertical respect as well as the motivational effects of respectful leadership on people in work settings. Both employees and their supervisors were surveyed with regard to their respect experiences and their work motivation.

During her studies Catharina Vogt  attended internships in several clinical and economic businesses. From 2009 to autumn 2011 she worked as a research assistant at the German Police University. There she managed the project “Jobs in the Shadow” (German “Berufe im Schatten“) which was advocated by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the European Social Fund. The project objected to examine and foster service quality as well as customers‘ service appreciation in the retail trade and heath care services. Beyond that she worked as a tutor for research methods and also trained police officers in “Leading and emotions”. From 2012 till 2014 she worked as a research assistant in the EU-Project “Conflict Resolution, Mediation and Restorative Justice and the Policing of Ethnic Minorities in Germany, Austria, and Hungary” (COREPOL) at the German Police University in Münster.
In 2015 she received a 1-year-scholarship from the Kühne Logistics University. Currently she is working in the company companions consultancy in Hamburg.

Why are we respecting the people we meet every day? For they have special skills? For they have power, prestige and high status?
Or because we believe that people shall be protected and respected in their dignity?
The distinction of vertical and horizontal respect reflects both aspects – respect because of status and respect because of equality as human beings. Both kinds of respect serve different functions. But if their effects on our experiences and behaviors are capable of being differentiated still remains unclear. Especially at the work place many employees complain about a lack of recognition, appreciation and respect.

With my dissertation I want to face these questions about how people experience horizontal and vertical respect in their daily work, what they gain from being respected, and what happens, if the needed respect does not occur. I am glad to examine these themes with the RespectResearchGroup and hence to make a contribution for a respectful society.
