I was considered one of the best recruiters in the Tri-State area. Why on earth did I leave that behind to become an Executive Coach?
I had an incredible recruiting career. I shattered records and was in the elite, top 10% on the company every year. I loved the industry – but my heart broke every time I helped a high-performing employee exit their high-potential team, with the leader and teammates left scratching his or her heads. High achievers are often taught to excel technically, but are never given the tools to truly lead, transform, and create bigger impact in their own lives. Self-awareness and EQ is statistically proven to be an absolutely critical component of longer term success and fulfillment, and we were only giving companies and individual a “band aid fix.” I decided that it was time to use my years of expertise and education to change this paradigm – FOR GOOD.
I’ve seen and heard it all. Now I am so thrilled to be your partner and show you how to fix it.
Whether you are a high achieving professional, corporate leader, small-mid sized business owner, or simply interested in being leaps ahead of your competition through improved leadership and internal coaching skills, drop me a note if you feel that we can add value to our respective networks and goals. I would love to partner with you.
Henna Pryor founded Pryority Group in 2019 to realize a vision that access to executive coaching and career transformation strategy should not be limited to the C-suite, and that investment in oneself is the most important asset to any person’s continued successful growth. As a lifelong student of human behavior, she takes a no-nonsense, no-jargon approach in her coaching. She does not accept excuses, and believes that the very qualities that have led to high achievers to their current success are precisely what hold them back from even greater levels of accomplishment and personal fulfillment.
By continuing to leverage this philosophy and exclusive partnering with industry experts in specialty focus areas, Pryority Group has quickly become a fast-growing firm in the Philadelphia metro area and nationwide.
Throughout a 14 year career in Finance & Accounting recruiting, Henna has broken multiple records and has successfully matched over 1,000 finance and accounting professionals into new opportunities, with companies ranging from early-stage startups to Fortune 500 global organizations. In 2019, Henna completed her certification in Leadership Coaching for Organizational Performance from American University, carries an ACC (Associate Certified Coach) credential through the International Coach Federation, and is thrilled to use her unique combination of expertise and experience to help businesses and high achievers take themselves to the next level.
