In addition, real case studies of coaching were presented, analysing the suggested approach that can be applied during a coaching session, and challenges that are faced by the coach.

The mixture of the participants profile has enabled an enhanced sharing of experiences, as well as exchanging of views on how to address specific concerns with regards to coaching.
