Coaching as an industry appears to be developing much faster than coaching as a discipline. One consequence of this discrepancy is a surge of what I refer to as "popularism" in the current practice and discourses of coaching - a flood of 'beautiful' Ideas and popular concepts that are overemphasized and overused to the extent of becoming clichés devoid of substantive meaning. Some of these ideas, if accepted uncritically, can even be harmful for our clients. We will discuss the shadow sides of the three ‘beautiful’ ideas and consider some ways of mitigating unwanted influences.
