Is executive coaching just a passing fad?

Is the use of coaching to develop leaders or high potential managers into leadership roles just a passing fad or here to stay?  If it’s here to stay, wouldn’t it be more effective for coaches to teach managers and leaders how to coach or to develop a coaching style of management and leadership than for a coach to “coach one leader or manager at a time?”  Developing a sustainable leader would include “teaching him to fish” rather than “fishing for him” in my opinion.  What are your thoughts on the topic of the efficacy of leadership coaching in organizations?
