Author Information

Jeni Mumford is a coach and facilitator who applies whole life coaching techniques to her work with people and within businesses. Before her own life-changing decision to become a coach, Jeni benefited from a 16-year career with the Hays group, spanning recruitment, sales operations, project management, and people development, where she was lucky enough to embark on a new challenging job role every 18 months or so. It was this experience of discovering that the grass is green wherever you are – if you take proper care of the lawn – that gave Jeni the conviction and motivation to build her purpose around inspiring people to attract and enjoy their own dream life and work.
In her business Jeni uses best practice coaching techniques together with NLP, and is a licensed facilitator of Tetramap (a holistic model of behaviour) and Goal Mapping (a brain-friendly technique for identifying and maximising progress towards goals). She is addicted to learning and this helps her add value to her work with clients. But Jeni will admit that quite a lot of the credit is down to her succession of cats, from whom she has picked up a great deal about how to handle the ups and downs of life.*
One of the things Jeni likes best about being a coach is that she feels she always gets as much out of the experience as her clients and she can’t thank them enough for the honour of seeing them move themselves from frustration to power. Honestly, it’s enough to make you want to write a book about it . . .

* This philosophy can be summed up as: play, ponder, and when in doubt, take a long nap in the sun or on a comfy bed.
