As you might expect, we at Coachilla have a lot of conversations about coaching every day. It never ceases to amaze us just how many misconceptions there are about coaching and coaches. Unfortunately many of them originate from the fact that coaching is still a new profession that is not widely understood. This leads to ideas of incompetent con men, who want to ‘bark orders at you’, ‘tell you how to live your life’ and give generic advice. In reality quality coaching is something totally different.
Thanks to these common misconceptions in the back of the mind, many people make the decision not to try coaching and forfeit serious benefits for self awareness and personal development.
