Contact and purposeful exchange between people in dialogue is seen as a precondition for the co-creation of meaning and for new insights to emerge. Emergence cannot be planned and predicted, but an enabling environment can be created that allows for inquiry into a subject. This article presents a dialogic approach to group coaching developed from an action research project. Dialogic feedforward is one of the crucial methods evolved through this project. The dialogic feedforward model has four steps (observing, reacting, clarifying and wondering) and the article discusses dialogic feedforward as a way to stimulate collaborative inquiring processes in group coaching.
