Here’s what some of them had to say.
As some of them were similar in “angst” I have grouped them:
Coaches who cast themselves as experts when they are not.
When they make assumptions and thinking on behalf of the other person
No boundaries coach.
Suggest affirmations as the solution to everything.
Some coaches are arrogant.
Telling clients what they need to do.
They think everyone needs rescuing
Talk too much, do not listen and their ego.
Taking advantage of their client’s trust.
Give their opinion when I did not ask for it.
Muddling coaching with mentoring/counselling.
There is a trend in coaching where a large majority are always talking about 6 figure, high paying clients.
Interrupt while you are talking.
Manipulate into dependence.
Overstepping the bounds of coaching such as medical or psychological advice.
Cheerlead without any practical help.
When they get off being right, it shows I’m not the priority.
