Can a dependency be created between coach-mentor-advisor and client?
The client may “need” the coach-mentor-advisor in order to maximize an opportunity or accelerate a company’s growth, yet not be “dependent” on the coach-mentor-advisor. Anyone who is in the process of change needs structure, advice, support and a sounding board with an opinion, so in that sense, the coach-mentor-advisor is invaluable. But an emotional or psychological dependency is not created. The coach-mentor-advisor is helping the client to create a better future, more success, more money and a higher quality of life.
