Myth 10: Professional coaching is spiritual and relies on "harnessing the energy in the universe."
Fact: I have no idea what "harnessing the power of the universe" means, and my guess is that most professional coaches don't either. When I first started researching coaching, I was under the impression coaching involved lots of chanting, incense, meditation, and other spiritual practices. While there are many great spiritual coaches that may incorporate these practices into their session, most coaches are practical, professional, business people who are focused on tangible results, not airy-fairy mysticism.
