Why awkwardness is your secret weapon for risk-taking at work | Henna Pryor | TEDxQueensVillage

No Comments

We’d all love to know how to take more risks and push through resistance in order to smash our professional and personal goals. It sounds good in theory, but most of us have a hard time moving from wishful thinking to execution. Why? Because when we have a chance to take a risk in the moment, we feel awkward. In this talk, join Workplace Performance Expert and Executive Coach, Henna Pryor, as she unpacks this universal emotion and teaches us how the key to taking more risks at work lies not in eliminating awkwardness, but in conditioning for it instead. Henna Pryor, PCC is an award-winning Keynote Speaker, Executive Coach and Facilitator, and Workplace Performance Expert. Her clients call her their “secret weapon for impossible change,” an honor she wears proudly.
Following an illustrious 14 year professional staffing career as an industry leader, she has been invited to speak to a variety of global organizations including Google, Workday, US Bank, Johnson & Johnson, FIS Global, and more. She has also been featured in articles for media including Forbes, Real Simple, Fast Company, and more.
Henna founded her company, Pryority Group, to realize a vision that transformational speaking, coaching, and performance growth workshops shouldn’t be limited to the C-Suite, and because she believes the key to most people’s success is leaning into awkwardness a little more and worrying about stinking a little less. (She might just have you do both.) Her first book – Awkward & Upward! – comes out in 2023. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
