Who is she?...
Letter from the Editor - Jenni Lander, Founder of Her & Now
Ever since I was a little girl I've had a fascination with people - the way they think, feel and why they do what they do.
Growing up I remember my dad telling me that girls could do anything boys could do. So I played with Lego, studied maths and science at school and played all sorts of sports.
When I left school I decided to study psychology at uni and I loved it. When I graduated I wanted to be around high performers so took a graduate role in HR at a bank.
In the corporate world I was given so many great opportunities to grow, develop and learn from amazing leaders. I spent time working in an internal consulting team, advising business leaders on their operating models, organisation design and managing change within their teams.
I have always wanted to have my own business and couldn't ignore that feeling that I was meant to do something more with my passion. So I spent a year researching, studying and trying a few different options to find what I was meant to do next.
I was part of an entrepreneurial program and we did an amazing workshop on purpose, vision, mission and values and it was then that I discovered what my purpose was - "to empower and inspire people to live their most fulfilling life". It was at this workshop that a really inspiring, talented coach spoke and I knew that was what I was meant to do. Straight away I began my coaching certification and then started my coaching business.
This is why I'm passionate about supporting and enabling people to find their passion, achieve their personal and professional goals and live the life they dream of!
