Discussions  with leaders from the logistics, energy, consumer goods and telecommunications sectors concluded with exploration into the role coaching plays beyond the corporate world, underscoring life coaching and its contribution to overall wellness and health.
‘We are delighted with the amount of awareness International Coaching Week has brought to coaching in Oman and we are energised by the positive contributions coaching has made so far to Oman’s growing sectors’, said Gerda Van Loon, International Coach Federation — Oman Chapter President. ‘The experiences of our guest organisations at today’s event mark the arrival of innovative approaches to personal, professional and leadership development’, added Gerda.
