This chapter summarizes what e-coaches have to say about their practical e-coaching experiences by creating a survey featuring a number of open questions. It focuses on coaches who have worked with e-mail coaching, as this type of e-coaching is the most distinct from traditional face-to-face (F2F) coaching. The questionnaire was completed by 37 coaches who have completed 334 e-coaching programs between them. The results of the questionnaire will be summarized in a number of themed sections. Forty-three per cent of the coaches had difficulty with the fact that they and their clients were not simultaneously present. Sixty-five per cent of the coaches stated that the most important skill for e-coaches is the ability to write concisely. The coaches surveyed also gave a number of tips for other e-coaches and professionals who are about to take their first steps into the world of e-coaching.
