Guru has secret training methods – The coach is open and shares

Guru puts other down to make himself look good – Coach uplifts and gives credit where it is due

Guru expects everyone to drink the Kool-Aid – Coach offers pure water

Guru has no question, all the answers – Coach is guided by questions

Guru makes exorbitant claims of success – Coach lets actions speak for themselves

Guru is on the front page – Coach is on the back page

Guru follows the $$$$ – Coach is driven by principle

Guru complexifies – Coach simplifies

Guru is exclusive – Coach is inclusive

Guru is in the spotlight – Coach is in the background

Guru is conditional – Coach is unconditional
