Of Kin was founded by Kylie Lewis (she/her) in 2013, after a 20 year digital strategy career. Leaving the hustle of 24/7 online culture, she longed to humanise work, and returned to her original studies in psychology and sociology. After making the leap start Of Kin, she qualified as an executive coach and in 2016 trained with Dr Brene Brown in The Daring Way™, and again in 2018 for Dare To Lead™.
She now supports the development of creative, curious and entrepreneurial organisations and their teams interested in daring leadership, humanising work, building brave cultures and cultivating professional and personal courage.
Kylie holds a Bachelor of Arts (Hons)(Psychology & Sociology), Masters in eBusiness and Communication and is a certified Executive Coach (IECL) and Wellness Coach (Wellness Coaching Australia). She is an accredited facilitator of Dr Brené Brown’s The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ curriculum, and a graduate of Dr Judith Glazer’s Conversational Intelligence™ program and Tara Mohr’s Playing Big™ Facilitator Training and, is currently studying systemic team coaching Peter Dawkins at the Global Team Coaching Institute. She was a fitness instructor for over 10 years, so moving bodies, as well as hearts and minds, is in her toolkit.
She also has a passion for wellbeing, photography (12,843 iPhone photos and counting), wholehearted living, good chai, slow, the bespoke and handcrafted, the thoughtfully designed, and is forever experimenting to perfect the choc banana peanut butter smoothie.
She believes in the power of naps, that life is too short for ironing and you can never have too many books. Her two guiding values are courage and grace.
