Kirkus Reviews' Top 100 Indie Books of 2023


Awkwardness isn’t a weakness to fix - it’s your greatest asset for professional and personal growth. 

In a time of blurred realities and filtered faces, embracing your awkwardness may seem counterintuitive. As 2x TEDx Speaker and Executive Coach Henna Pryor shows, relishing your “Good Awkward” is essential to becoming more bold, boosting your confidence, and taking the necessary professional risks at work that help you be braver and meet your true potential.

In this book, Pryor taps her signature playful and lighthearted writing style to share stories, science-based tools, and simple action steps to guide you to:

  • Pinpoint the exact reason it’s been difficult to take risks - and how to move past it
  • Learn how to use the concepts of deliberate discomfort and strategic micro stressors to strengthen mental muscle
  • Create your own personalized plan to be braver in the moments when it counts

If your biggest goals have felt elusive or you’re eager to find a fresh edge in the crowded marketplace, Good Awkward can teach you how to create a new outlook on moments that once caused embarrassment or cringe and use them as a force for good, so you can become the bravest you.

“A well-researched and well-designed call to embrace awkwardness.”
