Bringing Compassion to
your Organisation

BalO will help you discover how compassion in organisations connects the dots between leadership, performance and well-being

Why is compassion important for leaders and organisations?

The average person will spend about a fifth of their life at work – and it makes a big difference whether you feel your manager, colleagues and organisation more generally are kind, caring and supportive, or critical, disparaging and unhelpful.

At BalO we believe that all organisations can benefit from becoming more compassionate and caring to their staff. Let us help you to create an environment that facilitates psychological safety and support, and in turn, a happier workplace and better performing teams.

BalO's Founders

Jamesina Sainsbury

Jamesina Sainsbury, Balo Founder

I’m a leadership consultant and executive coach and began my career in operational excellence, but soon figured out that there is no operational excellence without human flourishing and compassion. 

I found my passion was in enabling people to perform at their best, and since then have worked with organisations across the globe to shape their leadership and culture.


Chris Irons

Chris Irons, Balo Founder

I’m a Clinical Psychologist who is passionate in how compassion – for ourselves and for others – can have a transformational affect on life, relationships and well-being. 

I’ve spent much of the last 20 years researching, writing about, teaching and training people, teams and organisations about the benefits of compassion, and how to cultivate compassion in authentic and sustainable ways.

Higher employee well-being, happiness and positive emotions
