The Karuna Collective

At The Karuna Collective, we work with our clients to redesign old ways of thinking, operating and leading organisations to create a new way of being in business.


A Sanskrit word that translates into taking compassionate action.


Work done together for the good of the whole.

We exist to help

Team development program

Create a vibrant and dynamic environment that accelerates development, leverages diversity of perspectives and drives outcomes

Leadership development program

Support to realise their potential and undertake purposeful action to make the difference in the world they were born to make

Executive leadership program

Cultivate progressive ideas and deliver transformative strategies that generate sustainable, inter-generational impact

The Karuna approach involves carefully and thoughtfully dissecting the system dynamics currently at play in an organisation to understand the old patterns, behaviours and frameworks that may be holding our clients back from making their big ambitions and good intents a reality.

We apply a holistic mindset that starts with the strategic intent of the organisation, then we translate this into transformational interventions that ultimately promote collective leadership, improve team dynamics, and increase the capacity and dexterity of leaders to successfully deliver purpose, profit and impact in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) context.

Our methods are based on the foundations of positive psychology, adult development theory, integral leadership, growth edge coaching, complexity and systems theory, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), strategic innovation and change management theory.

As a for-purpose organisation that believes in compassionate action and positive impact, 5% of the profits from The Karuna Collective are committed each year to support the higher education of women in Sri Lanka.
