George Mumford is a globally recognized speaker, teacher, and coach. Since 1989, he’s been honing his groundbreaking performance and mindfulness techniques with people from locker rooms to board rooms, Yale to jail. Michael Jordan credits George with transforming his on-court leadership, while Mumford has also worked with Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, and countless other NBA players, Olympians, executives, and artists.
