ABSTRACT

Interpersonal communication is the key to success in communication between coaches and athletes to understand and know the state of an athlete. The purpose of the study was to determine the interpersonal communication skills possessed by prospective trainers. The research method used a descriptive method with survey techniques related to the interpersonal communication skills of prospective trainers. The number of samples in this study was 105 samples with a sampling technique using purposive samples. The sample used in this study is a prospective trainer who has currently completed the basic material and is in the process of completing the advanced material. The results of this study obtained data: 1) Session 1: Sending clear messages, getting a score of 60% (Need more consistent attention); 2) Session 2: Listening Ability scored 56.19% (Need more consistent attention); 3) Session 3: Giving and Getting Feedback scored 60% (Need more consistent attention), 4) Session 4: Handling Emotional Interactions scored 60% (Need more consistent attention). These results are considered still not high enough, considering that prospective coaches will meet and deal with athletes who have very different characteristics. So, it is hoped that the prospective trainer can improve interpersonal communication skills (not only the ability to train). In this study, it is still limited to find out and collect data on the interpersonal communication skills of prospective trainers. Interpersonal communication improvement programs will be very possible for future research.
