Summary

The groundbreaking book that gives every woman the practical skills she needs to begin Playing Big.

Five years ago, Tara Mohr began to see a pattern in her work as an expert in leadership: women with tremendous talent, ideas, and aspiration were not recognising their own brilliance. They felt that they were ‘playing small’ in their lives and careers and wanted to ‘play bigger’, but didn’t know how. And so Tara devised a step-by-step programme for playing big from the inside out: this book is the result.

Many women are aware of the changes they need to make to be more successful, but they don't know how to become that more confident woman they'd like to be. Playing Big provides real, practical tools to help women trust their instincts; identify and pursue their callings; become their own mentor; and take bold action to make their ideas a reality.

Not everyone wants to be a CEO, but every woman - whether a graduate, manager, volunteer, creative, stay-at-home mum, or an entrepreneur - aspires to something: more influence at work or fulfilment at home; more opportunities to share their voice; more certainty in their vision. Tara has already helped thousands of women across the world to play bigger according to what ‘playing big’ truly means to them. And when women play big, we make things happen.

Uncommon, common sense for guys too!

I bought this as favourably reviewed and to help my wife and daughter be all they can be - the upshot is that I've so far got more back in practical sense personally than my family.
Well done Tara - huge respect for your words and messages!

Where you been all my life

Finally, finally someone who talks my language, understands my way of thinking and is able to translate it into (spoken) words in such a way that during my car journey of 8 hrs I learnt so much that I can't wait to go to my next level of playing big. You're very special to me Tara Mohr, I'm ever so grateful having come across you.

This book is a must read!!

This book is a must read for women who know they are here to make a difference in the world but need to get out of their own way first. I wish this was taught in schools.

Inspiring and accessible

Tara must have been resident in my head and heart to be so bang on with her insights into my playing small for too many years. This is a critical of-the- moment book I would highly recommend. I've ordered the hard copy though because there are so many principles & questions I want to revisit. Fab!

amok with lightbulb moments

What did you like most about Playing Big?

It's filled with so many common sense things that you probably know, or could understand, but didn't necessarily realise about yourself. I'd be listening and then "ping", the lightbulb went off again...

I think I'll truly benefit from listening to the book once more and spending more time working through the exercises, rather than just capturing a mental list. However, I felt invigorated after listening to this fresh book.

What about Tara Mohr’s performance did you like?

Listening to Tara was easy, like sat in a comfy chair listening to a wise friend. I'm looking forward to listening again.

A must read for every woman!

An inspiring read for every woman who wants to live their big dreams.

I found her ideas on dealing with feedback strategically very useful.

A decent listen

A decent listen, but not quite as engaging as some similar titles that I have. So just a four star instead of a five. Still pretty good.
