Many people view leadership coaching as an arcane and dubious process, evoking notions of occult exchanges between people who are basically strangers to each other. This unfortunate and inaccurate image has been perpetuated by the popular media: we have all seen therapists or coaches depicted as aloof, grey-bearded men with Viennese accents, who say nothing as their clients writhe miserably on old-fashioned upholstered couches, fighting their demons unaided. This classic scenario can be the background to some very funny cartoons; however, more disingenuously, it encourages negative imagery and stereotyping.
