The latest thinking in behavioural change
NEW RELEASE - AVAILABLE NOW
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 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 this book, Sarah Hill provides a conceptual and practical framework for doing this work with leaders. Through her extensive experience, she takes readers on a journey of discovery about their own coaching model, encouraging them to consider the place and purpose of exploring a leader’s childhood story.
In an overt demonstration of the work coaches must do themselves before working with others in this sphere, Sarah joins others in courageously weaving her own childhood story through these pages, creating a unique tapestry of experience for others to learn from.
