National survey data from the US suggests that over the last decade there has been a growing crisis in confidence in business and political leadership, which is possibly one reason for the increased scientific research into the emerging field of Authentic Leadership. Much evidence is starting to accumulate into both a conceptualisation of AL and its potential organisational benefits. However, what seems slow to follow is a scientific approach to Authentic Leadership Development. This study reports on the efficacy of one particular form of ALD, namely authentic leadership group-coaching. Five 3-month long group-coaching interventions were run over a period of two years and a repeated measures design was employed to evaluate whether these AL coaching groups had an impact on the scores of two scientifically validated AL measures; the Authentic Leadership Questionnaire (ALQ) and the Authentic Leadership Inventory (ALI). Analysis of the ALQ and ALI results found significant differences in the scores of both of these instruments. ALQ: t(24)=2.83, p<.009 & ALI: t(24)=3.84, p<.001. It was therefore concluded that the relatively short-term Authentic Leadership coaching group is an effective form of Authentic Leadership Development.
