Jenny Rogers was an early entrant to the world of coaching, beginning when she ran the BBC’s management development department after earlier careers in teaching, television production and publishing. She left the BBC to start her own coaching company and has been a coach ever since, specializing in the world of senior executives. As well as working with her own coaching clients, she trains and supervises other coaches.
Her books range from a 4th edition of Coaching Skills: The Definitive Guide to Being a Coach, a book used around the world as the ‘Bible’ on how to be a coach, to her four best-selling books on the psychometric instruments, the MBTI and the FIRO-B. She has also written books about how to start a coaching business, how to navigate career crises and how to get through a job interview successfully.
Jenny was married for many years to the former BBC Editor and journalist Alan Rogers. He died in 2010. She lives in central London and is close to her two sons and three grandchildren. She is a keen cook, cat lover, filmgoer and walker.
