"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.
