A next generation people development company

We are Lifehackers Institute. Our goal is to use positive behavioural interventions to dispel division, optimize talent, experiences, psychology and relationships.

Because no-one does data and heart like we do. 

Katrina Loukas

It was founded by social entrepreneur Katrina Loukas – author and previous ambassador of the Sydney Hub for Systems Innovation.

Katrina’s expertise has shaped the company into the next-gen people development company it is today. As a polymath she draws from her work as a successful advanced behaviour specialist; process-oriented psychotherapist; complex systems leader; teacher; & senior researcher of statistical modelling specializing in time series analysis of interventions.

Katrina knows data and she sure knows heart.


Passionately driven toward data-driven, ground-breaking, ecosystem-shifting strategy that compels

Our work draws from evidence-based positive behavioural techniques, applied behaviour analysis, complexity theory, process-oriented psychology, somatic experiencing (trauma informed), data science, complex systems thinking and emergent leadership (VUCA).

Its not just about developing people, it’s about optimizing their talent, interactions, experiences, psychology and organisational/group relationships. In this way we dispel the limiting ‘silo haze’ – to pave the way for individual and group coherence. 

We offer socially innovative solutions for individual; and small or large group transformation.

What people say about us

“Katrina is by far one of the most soulful, insightful, loving and beautiful people I’ve ever met! I can honestly say from the young girl I was when I first met with Katrina to where I am now, I am a completely different person. I’ve completed creative projects I could never see myself finishing, love my new healthy body, found a deeper spiritual connection in life and met the man of my dreams! Katrina’s magic does wonders.”

Becki, Sydney

“Katrina is simply amazing! She is down-to-earth, funny, and uber talented… Not only did she help me shed all that was holding me back, but she also helped me to find bliss in everyday life. Working with Katrina was an absolute joy.”

Dr. L Klein

“Katrina facilitates, through her gentle insights and questions … (and) the wondrous thing of this process, is that the truth, the light, the behavioural pattern is revealed to the patient from within him/herself. We become the truth illuminated – Katrina gently steers our spiritual connection back to ourselves.”

Carla, Marrickville

“I have worked with Katrina on a variety of projects over many years. She is an excellent analyst who can familiarise herself with new topics, ideas and methods very quickly.”

Dr. L Klein

“Katrina is science and magic. She is incurably wise, playful and fun. She brings me joy and rattles my cage in the most delicious way. I love the way she addles my mind with new paradigms…”

Kim, Sutherland Shire

“Katrina, … I did not think someone could get to the heart of things in such an approach, yet I found out that what you do is remarkable… I have NO hesitation in recommending you to people. What you do quite quickly uncovers that which has been hidden, that no longer serves a person…and in the uncovering you take people to the next stage of release just as effectively.”

Mark, Sydney

”It was lovely to meet such a beautiful soul that exudes a wanderlust and strength in areas that the most fearless won’t go. You are very special.”

Mary, Beecroft

“Katrina was able to quickly and intuitively diagnose the root cause of my situation, and offer both practical and spiritual solutions. At all times I felt a genuine warmth and compassion from Katrina, backed by a solid intellect and perceptive presence. I would recommend Katrina to anyone seeking fresh and effective ways forward from their current challenges!”
