The Leadership Dilemma: Why Purpose Isn’t Enough ????

Let’s dive into a little truth bomb – purpose is undeniably important, but it’s not the sole secret sauce for success. Shocked? Don’t be! Let me break it down for you. Recently, I ran a poll on LinkedIn, tapping into the insights of executives just like you. Guess what? 83% of respondents agreed that while purpose is crucial, it’s not the sole driver of success. Enter: motivation. When we talk about purpose, it often revolves around the organisation’s or team’s overarching mission. Take my experience leading an in-house legal team for a bank, for example. Our purpose, as defined by…

LinkedIn recognised me as a top mindfulness voice! ????????

If you had told me this 12 years ago, when I started my business, I would never have believed you. I gave up my corporate job with nothing but an idea and deep seated awareness of being guided to deliver mindful leadership capability to leaders.  I witnessed many leaders experiencing burnout and struggling to engage the hearts and minds of their teams during continual restructuring, downsizing and market changes.  I encountered it myself before taking a year out to recover from significant health issues. So I set up a business and named it Leading Mindfully.  At the time, mindfulness was…

The power of rituals to revitalise your life

Life can be overwhelming at times, with many demands on our time and attention. It’s easy to get caught up in the rush of everyday life and forget to take a moment for ourselves. Before we know it, time passes by quickly in constantly being busy. This is where rituals come in. Rituals are practices done with awareness, intention, and focus. They help us connect with ourselves and our surroundings and bring a sense of meaning and purpose to our lives. In contrast, habits are actions done unconsciously. While habits can be beneficial, such as brushing our teeth or exercising…

Connecting your team with their purpose could be the key to resilience

A recent global study by HBR revealed that 90% of people would trade 20% of their income for meaning and purpose. The same study found that meaning and purpose are crucial to organisational success. Estimates suggest that the increase in productivity when staff find their work meaningful results in a $9K p.a. increase in revenue per person.  And it doesn’t stop there. When leaders are connected with their purpose there is: ✅ Increased engagement ✅ Improved workplace culture ✅ A high chance for organisations to be an Employer of Choice in a highly competitive market When we think of purpose,…

Overcome overwhelm and finish the year on a high note

What a year this has been. I could not have predicted that we would struggle to manage COVID and endure more lockdowns.  Are you looking forward to the festive season as much as I am?  If I told you there are 74 days left until Christmas, what would you say?  Without strategically planning how to navigate the final quarter of the year, you run the risk of being swept into the holiday season, ending the year exhausted, overwhelmed and stressed out.  If you want to finish your year on a high note, it’s time to consolidate your goals and make…

Lawyers Weekly: The changes you need to make to have impact as a leader

Repa was recently invited by Lawyers Weekly to share her thoughts on impactful leadership. First published in September 2021, in this article Repa shares 4 changes you can make to have more impact as a leader. This time last year I was looking forward to 2021. Many of the leaders I was working with were tired from the difficulties they had faced in 2020, and were hopeful that with Covid cases declining and a fresh start to the new year, 2021 would be more manageable, less disruptive, and good for business. How wrong we were.   2021 has certainly been a…

4 simple strategies to define your leadership purpose

There are many types of leaders and, yet, very few of the leaders I meet have consciously chosen the type of leader they want to become.  The conscious choices you make as a leader begins with why you want to lead.  I came to learn this the hard way. In my corporate life, I started to feel like I wasn’t in the right job, and that perhaps I should be doing something else. Unfortunately, I wasn’t sure what this ‘something else’ was, and so, I continued working in the same environment despite my head and heart telling me otherwise.  Eventually,…

Repa was recently invited to contribute to Leaderonomics, sharing her wisdom on influence and impact as a leader. Read the full article below, first published in April 2021. Gallup’s research shows that 82% of the time, leaders are promoted or selected for the wrong reasons.  They are promoted due to tenure, technical expertise, or good performance in another position.
