Webinar: Coaching invisible realities: What to do when a childhood story enters the room

What to do when a childhood story enters the room when coaching? Join us on Tuesday, 23 February 2021 for our coaching webinar ‘Coaching invisible realities: What to do when a childhood story enters the room’ to find out!

What is it about?

In this webinar, Dr Sarah Hill will facilitate an exploration of the place and purpose of exploring a leaderโ€™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 an` what triggers their greatest reactivity, particularly when the stakes are high.

Exceptional leadership coaches are able to skillfully solicit the childhood story that underpins a leaderโ€™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.

Who should attend?

The session is primarily for coaches who want to explore a model for working safely and effectively with their clientโ€™s childhood stories. It may also be of interest to HR professionals with a focus on providing leadership development opportunities that go deep to enable a real command of the self behaviourally, especially when under pressure.

The fee for the webinar is ยฃ30 (incl. VAT) (10% discount for Henley alumni; free for Coaching Centre members).
