Leadership is one of the critical determinants of an organisation's success in navigating the challenges associated with operating in turbulent times. The nature of the specific leadership approach adopted has a potentially significant impact on an organisation's ability to meet the challenges of a business landscape characterised by continuous change. Leadership coaching is a strategy gaining increasing recognition as a driver of successful organisational change within this broader context of ongoing environmental change. In particular, leadership coaching can be used as an integral part of a strategy to bring about a desired change in an organisation's culture. However, there is a need for increased evidence of the success of leadership coaching initiatives in bringing about such change, at both the individual and group levels, over a long period of time. This case study attempts to make a contribution to this evolving field by demonstrating how leadership coaching at an individual and team level can facilitate successful organisational change in a small-business context.
