Meet our founder

I'm Saffron Baggallay, founder of the Personal Mastery Lab. For nearly 20 years, I've been delivering personal mastery-based leadership programmes through the lens of the Enneagram.

I've always been fascinated by people. As a child, I loved observing and figuring out what was happening for people beneath the surface. 

When I wasn’t listening in on my Mum’s friends’ conversations around our kitchen table, I was learning how to be a prima ballerina and dreaming about being famous like Madonna. I thought I wanted to act and perform, but actually I realised I wanted to know about people, especially those who didn’t look like me. 

In using the Enneagram for my own personal development, I knew I had to teach it; and to deliver specific learning outcomes for the people I’ve been honoured to work with.

I'm a master facilitator and have over 10,000 hours of experience facilitating and coaching people from all walks of life on 4 different continents. My qualifications also include an international Narrative Enneagram teachers qualification, the embodied enneagram, a masters in identity theory and various qualifications in somatic healing modalities.

I 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, I put my life's work online so that I could offer my programmes internationally. Alongside me is my fantastic co-facilitators, Lara Ellwood and Thato Belang. Their credentials and experience have added a wealth of value to The Personal Mastery Lab.

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