Harriet King – Founder, de.Trybe, – Coach

I’m Harriet King. I am the founder and C.E.O. of de.Trybe, a former International Employment Lawyer, Coach and Speaker. As an International Employment Lawyer I advised companies on the relevant legal framework and processes when dealing with workplace complaints including sexual assault and harassment. As a survivor I filed formal complaints against sexual assault and harassment originating in the workplace in both criminal and civil legal venues. My personal and professional experience has given me a unique insight into the impacts of sexual abuse and harasment in the workplace, the inadequacies of the current systems and the deeply rooted impact it has on survivors and business cultures.

My coaching practice is derived directly from a combination of my professional expertise and experience and my personal healing journey and fight for justice.

My coaching practice are developed in 2 areas:

  • Coaching women who have experienced sexual violence and harassment that have originated in the workplace through their healing and workplace reporting journey
  • Executive Authentic Leadership Coaching – Coaching Business Leaders/Executive Women on their path to authentic leadership – whether you already have a seat at the table or are looking to build your career and be a change maker within your organisation

I spent the majority of my career as an International Employment Lawyer. I operated in a variety of environments including high performance, hyper growth startups as well as traditional and established companies working in the heart of the business, providing strategic employment legal advice across markets in unique and ever changing business and legal environments. I built teams, mentored colleagues, litigated cases and had a seat at the table. I have executed at the highest level, at a significant pace.I achieved traditional success, reaping the financial rewards and recognition. To look at, you would have thought that I had it all.

I have also been in an abusive relationship that originated in the workplace. The abuse was extreme and ongoing and significantly impacted both my personal and professional life. I lost all sense of myself and watched as my previously vivacious, dynamic, action oriented self became drained and reclusive. I felt like I was in a black hole watching everything I knew; every aspect of my life, my career, my health, my wellbeing spiral away from me. I knew that I wanted something different from life. But I also understood that I could not continue to make the same choices and expect a different result. I committed to going deep into myself, my relationship history, my childhood to understand how and why I made those choices and developing the tools to empower myself to choose differently. I knew that if I could compassionately face my emotional wounds, every area of my life would benefit.

In retrospect, I can see that I curated my own holistic rehabilitative healing plan. What started as a process of healing and self discovery became a road map to complete and utter freedom. Freedom from old stories and patterns that held me back, and prevented me from being my whole, authentic self and living my fullest life.

A Key component of my healing journey was raising my voice and fighting back. I filed a formal complaint with the Company and the Police and spent the next few years pursuing both criminal and civil legal processes.
