Teaching leaders to behave differently may therefore be best regarded as a culture change program and designed accordingly. Not surprisingly we commend a dialogic approach to managing change in this context rather than a conventional top down approach. A dialogic approach emphasizes the importance of dialogue and the provision of space for collective meaning making (9) (10).

As organizations seek to do more with less, to adapt faster to the demands of an ever more complex and dynamic world, and to align their collective efforts in the same direction, so we believe leaders will need to develop their capacity to coach. Leaders will need to enhance their capacity to coach, not only individuals, but teams and groups. Teaching leaders how to coach their teams may be the next ‘big thing’ in the coaching world, and the organizations that do this best are likely to be those who recognize the importance of adopting a longitudinal systemic approach to facilitating the emergence of new capacity.
