Abstract
Aligning leadership behaviour to organisational values is critically important in ensuring the sustainable success of organisations. In today's fast changing world, executives are under an enormous amount of pressure to manage fierce competition and less predictability in an environment where excellence is significantly more difficult to achieve. Organisational values are the one constant in businesses today.

In spite of the challenges that leaders face on a daily basis, they can increase their chance of success by ensuring that the organisational values are entrenched within the organisation. This research is focused on determining whether group coaching can have a positive impact on aligning leadership behaviour to organisational values, whether coaching can increase self-awareness and whether self-awareness correlates to an increase in the alignment of leadership behaviour to organisational values. The degree that leadership behaviour is aligned to organisational values will be assessed through 360-degree feedback assessments.
