Leadership Development For Business Growth

I believe we all have a sacred duty to make a difference in this world by using our unique gifts. I work with leaders to connect them to their passions and align with their higher purpose in their role as a senior leader or business owner.

I work at the intersection of yoga philosophy (mindfulness), neuroscience and positive change. I am on a mission to bring more meaning to business by helping leaders to deeply connect with their unique strengths and drive business and career growth from a more centred space in their mind and their body.

Kelly’s Story

Kelly Spiteri
Executive Advisor
Victorian Legal Services Commissioner

It’s very easy to get a narrow view of your worth, especially if you’ve been in the one industry for a long time. The holistic approach Repa took, helping me to understand and appreciate more of myself – my value, skills and experience – gave me the confidence to see opportunities that I would otherwise disregard or believe I’m capable of fulfilling.

Through Repa’s thoughtful and empowering style of engagement, often challenging me, with kindness and compassion, as well as holding me accountable to take charge of my own destiny, I was able to successfully transition into a different sector, securing a fantastic role for myself which aligned with my skills and experience, as well as provide opportunity for career progression.

I now have a deeper respect for the connection between mind, body and performance. I have grown in confidence, resilience and determination. I am grateful for Repa’s ability to get the best out of me and inspiring me to believe in my ability.

Sonja Steiner
Head of Wrap Operations
Colonial First State

Working with Repa has been challenging, rewarding and life-changing, all at the same time. Having a whole of self-approach and mindfulness across work and personal life brings a balance and grounding that has helped me be my best.

Repa has a great style, both supportive and challenging you to be your best. The techniques and tools we worked on have made a significant difference to the way I approach work, leadership and life in general. Moreover, putting them into practice and receiving positive feedback from my team has reinforced a learning and growth mindset in the way I lead.

Thanks to my work with Repa, I have a clearer understanding of my strengths, values and what I bring as a unique set of skills into my career.

Andrew Smith
Chief Executive Officer

Not only do I have a deeper understanding of my own leadership skills, I am also more mindful of those around me as a result of this experience. Outcomes of a 360 review after 12 months showed that my leadership development objectives had been achieved and that there had been a noticeable positive impact on how peers and my own team viewed me in my leadership role.

Repa gave me the gift of mindfulness. Our coaching sessions went well beyond your typical coaching program: it touched the very essence of understanding my true self. Working with Repa was ‘transformational’ at all levels. What I received from Repa was truly a life gift that has impacted all aspects of me as a person and my ability to lead others.

Our objective was to develop a Strategic Plan that was both visionary and practical, to move MCWH forward into a new direction to suit rapidly changing circumstances. Repa guided us through a process which enabled us to engage our important stakeholders in thinking positively about the future of our organisation. Her inclusion of yoga and meditation techniques kept us energised and engaged.  We are now implementing the final year of our Strategic Plan and our evaluation is showing that it has been an amazingly successful plan.

Alice Bassett
Senior Marketing Communications Manager

The wonderful thing about Repa is that she absolutely challenges you and pushes you (safely) outside your comfort zone. She is also the master of accountability – so you should know that you WILL experience change through this process. I have enjoyed the benefits from my acts of courage and bravery, and you will too. 

The brilliance of coaching with Repa is the unexpected improvements that present along the way. Her work is so important in the world and she has reignited my passion for leadership and elevated my mindset and self-belief in countless ways.
