Henna Pryor: Boldness Favors the Awkward The Bold Lounge

    • Business

About This Episode
As a TEDx Speaker, Executive Coach, and Workplace Performance Expert, Henna Pryor has had many bold moments in her personal and professional life. But that doesn’t mean that they were perfect or that she had no doubts along the way. In reality, she has felt awkward and nervous, and in this episode, Henna explains how embracing our awkwardness is an important key to being bold. Throughout our lives, we are conditioned to fit in certain norms within society and within the organizations we work for. And if being bold feels difficult, Henna encourages us to peel back those inner layers to fully understand ourselves first. She discusses how recognizing what we value most, especially when we have to choose between likability and doing the right thing, will unlock our inner boldness. She also talks about how to identify and amplify true vulnerability, in ourselves and especially across social media. All of this inspired her upcoming book, Awkward and Upward, which will be released next year. Take a listen to find out how you can embrace your own authentic and awkward self to be bold.
