Dialogix have been described by the Theorist, David Kantor, as the Thought Leaders of the future in the field of Structural Dynamics. Thought leadership informs all that we do and is a role that we build into all aspects of the way we work. We are proud to play our part in ensuring the legacy of David’s ideas as well as developing and extending the theory. We do this by taking it into new territory through our practice, writing books and blogs, contributing to research and creating new methods that allow a much broader range of people to access Structural Dynamics and its application.

Download is a digital learning methodology based upon the neuroscience of how the brain forms long-term memory. The Download modules take the form of videos which deliver information in a specific sequence. The sequencing of the information embeds the knowledge directly into the long-term memory.
This method of learning has a number of benefits. Firstly, it is quick; up to 23 times quicker than traditional learning techniques. Secondly, you acquire more information which in turn leads to better application of the knowledge. And, obviously as the learning is placed directly into the long-term memory you don’t forget it!
Download is based upon world leading, peer reviewed academic and scientific research. We conducted our own pilot with one the world’s largest technology companies using our Structural Dynamics Module called ‘Read the Room – Change the Outcome’ and Download performed as all the research suggested it would.

Where Did You Learn To Behave Like That?: A Coaching Guide For Working With Leaders
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.
The Tao of Dialogue
Contemporary writers position ‘dialogue’ at the heart of change theory, but what do we mean by ‘dialogue’? The Tao of Dialogue explains through story what dialogue means, and how to leverage dialogic principles in managing relationships within the workplace.
Accessible and innovative, The Tao of Dialogue explains the basic principles of dialogue, defined as a way of thinking and reflecting together with others, through the story of Michael, the CEO of a company about to embark on a life-changing journey. In the first half of the book, he is introduced to the idea of dialogue by Hannah, an internal change practitioner working within the organisation. He is encouraged to engage in dialogue with those he seeks to influence, which requires him to examine his mindset and proactively make changes to the ways in which he is communicating with his team and the wider organisation. In the second half of the book Michael is assisted by Mark, an external consultant with expertise in working with teams, who helps him apply dialogic principles to leading his team.
Emerging from dialogue between seven experienced, international coaches, The Tao of Dialogue will be of interest to coaches in practice and training, as well as business leaders, HR and L&D professionals and consultants. It explains in simple terms how to transform human relationships, both one-to-one and team/group. It will also appeal to academics and students of coaching, executive development, change management and leadership development.
