Abstract

Political behaviors have an important place in human life in terms of providing benefits. For this reason, while political behaviors are revealed in achieving the desired goals, the importance of political skill increases. In the organizational field, especially the political skill levels of the managers are seen as an important factor in the achievement of the goals of the organization. In this context, the political skill levels of kickboxing trainers and referees working in the field of sports are also an important factor in the spread of kickboxing and achieving sporting goals. With this study, it is aimed to reveal the political skill levels of Kickboxing trainers and referees in terms of different variables. 80.5% of the participants are male and 19.5% are female. As a result of the analysis made according to the level of coaching, it was determined that there was a statistically significant difference in the sub-dimensions of networking ability and apparent sincerity, and general political skill levels (p<,05). However, the political skill levels of kickboxing coaches and referees were found above the average. As a result, it is suggested that kickboxing coaches and referees should be subjected to in-service training that can improve their political skills and therefore their communication skills.
