Bring Compassion to
your Organisation

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

Why is compassion in organisations important?

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.

Jamesina Sainsbury, Balo Founder

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