Meet our founder

Saffron Baggallay is the founder, owner and CEO of the Personal Mastery Lab. For over 23 years she has been designing, developing and delivering personal mastery-based leadership programmes through the lens of the Enneagram.

She has always been fascinated by people. As a child, she loved observing and figuring out what was happening for people beneath the surface. 

When she wasn’t listening in on her Mum’s friends’ conversations around the kitchen table, she was learning how to be a prima ballerina and dreaming about being famous like Madonna. she thought she wanted to act and perform, but actually she realised she wanted to know about people, especially those who didn’t look like her. 
In using the Enneagram for her own personal development, she knew she had to teach it; and to deliver specific learning outcomes for the people she says she been honoured to work with.

Saffron is a qualified master facilitator in accelerated learning techniques and has over 10,000 hours of experience facilitating and coaching people from all walks of life on 4 different continents. Saffron's qualifications also include an International Narrative Enneagram teachers qualification, the embodied enneagram, a masters in identity theory and various qualifications in somatic healing modalities.

We focus on transforming teams by teaching durable meta-skills that empower leaders to lead compassionately while unlocking inclusion and diversity within organisations to create
high-performing teams. 

In 2020 Saffron put her life's work online so that she could offer her courses without any geographical barriers. Alongside her are two fantastic facilitators, Lara Ellwood and Thato Belang. Their credentials and experience have added a wealth of value to The Personal Mastery Lab.

Our courses offer a unique and transformative experience that’ll help you unleash your potential and create real change in your life.
