Are You Listening?

Stories from a Coaching Life


'Absorbing' - The Guardian

'Are You Listening? is a real gem: full of insights about the human psyche, non-fiction, as gripping as a novel' -
Miranda Levy, author of THE INSOMNIA DIARIES on Twitter

It is very rare as an adult to find a place where you are not judged, where you can be open, honest and vulnerable: that is exactly what coaching provides. Through twenty stories from her 32 years in the coaching room, Jenny demonstrates how even the most successful people can be held back by doubts, limitations and human dilemmas, such as:

· 'Can I be my real self at work?'
· 'What's my purpose in life?'
· 'How do I deal with unhappiness and disappointment?'
· 'Should I go for a job where I get paid a fortune but know I'd be miserable?'

Through these moving, beautifully written stories, Jenny reflects on the meaning of modern relationships, demonstrating how the courage to be vulnerable can make a huge, transformative difference to the quality of all our lives.

'Jenny Roger cherishes the core of truth in each of us' - Sally Helgesen, author of HOW WOMEN RISE
