Stay Connected with Dr. Amy Robbins:









Have you ever needed to talk with a child about death? How easy or hard is it to talk about someone you loved and lost?


Today we talk with Sherrie Barch, CEO of two Forbes' ranked top executive search firms and a leadership consulting company, and an expert in leadership, team development, and diversity.


Sherrie’s new book “Heaven’s Bell” shows us how to talk about death. It was written for teens but enjoyed by people of all ages.  “Ring to Remember”, the partner journal to the book was just released on Father’s Day….with a special sign from above. 


Listen in to hear how to create a safe space to talk about Amy’s favorite subject: death.



Topics We Discuss:


  • [3:35] How Sherrie’s experience as a leader, having the difficult conversations, naturally led her to having the difficult conversations about death with young people.


  • [6:18] Curiosity and creativity led CEO Sherrie to write “Heaven’s Bell”, a fable about love and friendship that lasts beyond the physical body. Her own experiences informed her writing.


  • [12:08] The importance of talking about death especially during COVID years, and especially with younger people. How Sherrie’s story creates a safe place to experience and talk about one’s emotions around grief and loss.


  • [17:08] “Ring to Remember”, Sherrie’s partner journal to the “Heaven’s Bell” was created to keep the conversation going. Dedicated to her two father figures, it dropped on Father’s Day.


  • [20:30] How this work has shifted Sherrie’s work as a CEO. Leadership doesn’t mean knowing or finding all the answers. Leadership means creating space, with those curious, courageous conversations. Hopefully healing follows.


  • [24:40] Amy’s speed round questions: What is spirituality? What is something people don’t know about you? What is one thing you’re looking forward to right now? What’s one thing you’re deeply grateful for? What book is on your nightstand? What is your favorite spiritual or healing practice? What is the most spiritually transformative experience of your life?
