About Jay

As a life coach, speaker, corporate trainer, and author, he inspires people to harness their power to create the lives of their dreams. Jay's passion for personal growth and ability to listen for the greatness in others lead him to open his coaching practice over 10 years ago. He constantly applies the work to his own life and views transformation and personal growth as a continuous journey.


Jay Pryor Coaching

Though his process works for everyone, his private coaching practice and workshops are female focused. His female-to-male transition at age thirty-five allows him to illuminate the cultural experience of executive women in a unique way. Prior to opening his coaching business, Jay worked at a director level in a private sector small business.


Today Jay offers a wide range of programs and services – from individual coaching and seminars to corporate training and keynote speeches. You can also listen in to his weekly podcast Doing the Work with Jay and Becca or pick up a copy of Lean Inside: 7 Steps to Personal Power.
