Daring to Coach the Childhood Story: Plumbing the depths of shadow behaviour, high stakes reactivity and invisible realities
In this two-part interactive webinar series, Sarah Hill PhD, will facilitate an exploration of the place and purpose of exploring a leader’s childhood story and the importance of a coach rolling up their sleeves and going to work on their own Story too. She will also outline a practical framework for doing childhood story work and highlight some of the core components for safely entering this territory with clients.
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 particularly when they are in high stakes.
Exceptional leadership coaches are able to skillfully 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 sessions, 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.”
In this webinar series you will learn:
- A practical framework for doing childhood story work
- The core components for safely entering this territory with clients
- The importance of gaining command of your own Story before working with others.

Dr. Sarah Hill is a Co-Owner at Dialogix Ltd. Her early career in a wide range of different sectors in the UK formed the basis for the behavioural work she does globally 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 is an internationally recognised expert in childhood story work. She is also Co-Author of “The Tao of Dialogue”, which was published in 2019.
