Özet

In this study the relationship between political skill and psychological capital was investigated according to opinions of teachers. This study also investigated how teachers' psychological capital influences their political skill. The study was conducted with 325 teachers working in 15 primary and secondary schools in the district of Ankara Altindag. Within this scope, Psychological Capital Questionnaire and Political Skill Inventory were applied to participants. The scales gathered from participants analyzed via mean, standard deviation, Pearson correlation and hierarchical multiple regression. After the analysis, it was found that the level of teachers' political skill and psychological capital were relatively high. It was determined that there was a positive, medium level and statistically significant relation between political skill and psychological capital. Besides, the results showed that demographic features of teachers didn't affect political skill, but all sub-dimensions of psychological capital were significant predictors of political skill.
