Publisher's Summary

A groundbreaking women's leadership expert and popular conference speaker gives women the practical skills to voice and implement the changes they want to see - in themselves and in the world.
In her coaching and programs for women, Tara Mohr saw how women were "playing small" in their lives and careers, were frustrated by it, and wanted to "play bigger". She has devised a proven way for them to achieve their dreams by playing big from the inside out. Mohr's work helping women play bigger has earned acclaim from the likes of Maria Shriver and Jillian Michaels, and has been featured on the Today show, CNN, and a host of other media outlets.
Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In gave many women new awareness about what kinds of changes they need to make to become more successful; yet most women need help implementing them. In the tradition of Brené Brown's Daring Greatly, Playing Big provides real, practical tools to help women quiet self-doubt, identify their callings, "unhook" from praise and criticism, unlearn counterproductive good girl habits, and begin taking bold action.
While not all women aspire to end up in the corner office, every woman aspires to something. Playing Big fills a major gap among women's career books; it isn't just for corporate women. The audiobook offers tools to help every woman play bigger - whether she's an executive, community volunteer, artist, or stay-at-home mom.
Thousands of women across the country have been transformed by Mohr's program, and now this book makes the ideas and practices available to everyone who is ready to play big.

Amazing book!

This book is in my top five all-time masterpieces. A week into reading this book I watched my life shift enormously. If I could give this book to every woman on the planet I would. And I just might.

Life-altering in all the good ways

Would you listen to Playing Big again? Why?

Yes I'm already on my second listen and I brought the paperback too so I could refer to the journalling questions. Every now and then I come across a book that makes a huge impact on me and this is one. I will be referring back to it many times I'm sure, and I have already recommended it to many friends.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Playing Big?

Identifying the Inner Critic has been the biggest moment for me so far but I still have work to do. I love how Tara doesn't just talk about the theory of an Inner Critic but also gives you real practical tools for identifying and characterising that voice so that you can be more aware of your default self-criticisms and what they really mean.


Which scene was your favorite?

The Inner Critic chapter and the Inner Mentor chapter are mind blowing; plus the chapter on the two different types of Fear and also Leaping.


What insight do you think you’ll apply from Playing Big?

I have already applied many of the breakthroughs I've had to my personal and professional life; particularly in taking Leaps, and unhooking from Praise and Criticism. I was also surprised by many things I learnt from exploring my Inner Critic and Inner Mentor -and this process has helped me approach pretty much everything in my life with more calm and a greater compassion for myself.


Any additional comments?

I'm so grateful I found this book. If you struggle with self doubt, uncertainty with your purpose or anxiety about feedback then I am certain this book will help you, especially if you are a woman. It is smart, practical and also has a nice balance of spiritual content. I recommend it to anyone.
