The proposed research deals with the analysis of links between the assessment of communication skills, motivation, and awareness of coaching. The main objective of the research was to detect which skills are typical for the addressed sample of 140 managers (aged between 24 and 62 years), at what level are their communication skills, which tools of motivation they use in their work, and what is their knowledge of coaching. The utilized methodology was a combination of two questionnaires – questionnaire of development of Communication Skills (CS) and questionnaire of Awareness of Coaching (AC). On the basis of the acquired results, several proposals for improvement of particular managerial skills were provided.
