As part of the Ashridge Coaching Events Series in 2018, we are delighted to welcome Dr Sarah Hill.
In this interactive workshop, she will provide a conceptual and practical framework for doing childhood story work with leaders and facilitate an exploration of the place and purpose of exploring a leader’s childhood story. Her premise is that every leader in the world is shaped by their formative experiences. Whether they are aware of it or not, their earliest memories are influencing the way they show up; how they interact with others and what triggers their greatest reactivity. Exceptional leadership coaches are able to skilfully solicit the childhood story that underpins a leader’s characteristic behaviour, helping them access an unprecedented depth of understanding about themselves. Gaining command of this story can be singularly the most transformative act any leader may experience in a coaching relationship.
In an overt demonstration of the work coaches must do themselves before working with others in this sphere, Sarah will weave her own childhood story through the content of the session, creating a unique tapestry of experience.
Sarah’s book, ‘Where Did You Learn To Behave Like That?’ has already been endorsed by Douglas Stone & Sheila Heen, Best-Selling Authors of ‘Difficult Conversations’ and Lecturers at Harvard Law School who write: “Moving, sometimes frightening and beautifully told. With courage and compassion, Sarah Hill shares her own deeply moving story, and offers a model for what change looks like.”
About the speaker
Dr. Sarah Hill is a Managing Partner at Dialogix. Her early career in a wide range of different sectors in the UK formed the basis for the behavioural work she does today as a Dialogue and Structural Dynamics Interventionist with individuals, teams and across whole systems. She coaches CEOs and Senior Leaders from a range of different cultures and countries, within large and small, corporate and not-for-profit organisations. Through her experience as a supervisor of coaches and practitioners in this field she has been described as the "consultant's consultant".
Sarah is author of "Where Did You Learn To Behave Like That?". What led to the book was her support for the notion that behind every leader’s behaviour is a childhood story that can be a force for good, but also has the potential to wreak havoc, particularly when under pressure. Working globally, she has become an internationally recognised expert in childhood story work.
