Leadership Group Coaching in Action: The Zen of Creating High Performance Teams (2005)

Manfred Kets de Vries

"Effectiveness of group leadership coaching"

This article advocates the effectiveness of group leadership coaching. The argument is made that although one-on-one coaching can be highly effective, leadership coaching in a group setting will have a much higher pay-off because changes in leadership behaviour are more likely to occur. The article suggest that a change methodology centered on group coaching makes for high-performance teams, is an antidote to organisational silo formation, creates organisations without boundaries, and makes for true knowledge management. It also explores the similarities between leadership coaching and psychotherapy. A strong plea is made to subject aspiring leadership coaches to clinical training to create awareness of the kind of deep-seated psychological problems that can derail the leadership coaching process.
