We partner with you to create epic places to work.
By developing confident leaders, reimagining the employee experience and building all-in cultures, we help you create a business that has everyone talking - for all the right reasons. With a unique blend of evidence-based practice, neuroscience and energetics, our leadership mentoring, workshops and strategy programs are designed to go the distance.
We like to think of it as creating human-shaped culture.
What exactly is a third space?
Third Space is a new way for businesses to stop doing HR, and start creating human-shaped culture.
It’s the in-between place that emerges when two or more people come together – that sweet spot where strong and meaningful connections are made.
Third Space stands for ‘us’ and ‘our’ instead of ‘you’ and ‘me’. It’s our collective zone of humanity, where we tap into our full potential as people first, and leaders and employees second.
Entering this ‘third space’ is where the magic happens: empowering us to make our unique human-shaped ding in the world.
"Every moment in your life will benefit from being able to connect effectively."
What we stand for.
We are human first.
We ask ‘why’ before ‘what’.
We are playful.
We deliver differently.
Behind Third Space.
Hey, I’m Hareta. But you can call me ‘H’. I’ve made it my mission to expand the ‘H’ in HR. Hyper-aware, happiness, and holistic are my vibe.
I specialise in transforming leaders and redesigning the employee experience. I partner with the purpose-led, the forward-thinkers and the difference-makers to create human-shaped cultures that make a ding in the world.
I have worked with the best in the biz. Where the freedom to create, explore and do things differently was encouraged. But I’ve also been approached for advice and support by others who’ve had very different experiences. And I know that the world needs more workplaces who approach people and culture differently.
Traditional HR is out. We are HR for the new era of good leaders who are doing good business.
Exploring neuroscience, psychology, and energetics has released my creativity, playfulness and motivation to shake things up so that everyone can benefit from a new kind of workplace.
I’ve seen first-hand the power that comes from leading and designing experiences anchored around human behaviour. So I’ve put a middle finger up to the old ways of working and raised my glass to new ways of leading and contributing.
Founding Third Space has allowed me to scale my discoveries and combine my professional HR expertise with a dash of unconventionality. How we do what we do enables us to rise above the noise that traditional HR can create, and supports us as we advocate for the simple power of human connection.
H is for a new way of doing Human in business.
Experience matters. Backed by a Bachelor of Business Administration, I’ve worked in medium to large Australian-based global organisations for the last decade. I’ve managed teams across multiple time zones, and led through structural change, acquisitions and pandemics. I’ve scaled employee experience programs and run leadership workshops in Australia, the US and the UK. All in my signature style. Here are some highlights.

Words from clients.
"I am so glad to know Hareta - I’ve learned so much from her that I only wish I knew years ago when I first held leadership roles! She is compassionate, insightful, and down to earth. Every leader and aspiring leader should have a coach like Hareta in their corner."
Amy McKernan, Education Consultant, Writer & Editor
"Being coached by Hareta has been an extremely valuable and enlightening experience. As someone who is always looking for ways to improve their professional skills, I am so happy to have found a leadership coach like H. Much of what she has taught me in only a few sessions has already been implemented into my daily work and in turn, benefited the people I lead. Her empathetic and empowering values are a notable highlight and perfectly translate into the modern workplace. She is incredibly interpersonal, will take the time to listen to all of your professional concerns and generously shares her wisdom and tools. Whether you're looking at becoming a leader or becoming a better leader, I highly recommend taking that step with H."
"Launching a new business whilst building a collaborative and engaging team is always difficult and time consuming. Hareta from Third Space was an amazing asset to me and my team whilst I juggled the challenges of building my startup, the First Eleven Club. Hareta focused on my time management and communication skill delivery, to make sure our team members understood their specific roles and responsibilities. I don’t have specific HR experience, so having Hareta as my “go-to” leadership coach has been incredibly valuable and I cannot recommend Hareta and Third Space enough. I will continue to utilize Hareta’s experience and expertise to grow my leadership skillsets, as I focus on growing my business."
"I have loved working with Hareta, she is always so easy to approach around a range of situations. She is open and honest, listening and giving advice to ensure you are well equipped with the tools you need to lead. Hareta tells it like she sees it, but in a way that makes you feel you can handle any situation. Highly recommend."
"H and Third Space have been a major asset for my leadership and mentor development over the past few months as I was promoted into a new role. Now managing a team of varying personalities, the sessions I've had with H have been invaluable and eye-opening. The tools I have learnt have already begun to be implemented in my daily work which in turn has allowed me to connect with my staff on new levels. Learning to have an empathetic perspective on their daily work struggles has allowed me to respond and guide in a better manner, all of which has come from guidance from H. I can't recommend her enough for any aspiring leaders or anyone whose after a refresher course."
