Playing Big: Find Your Voice, Your Mission, Your Message

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 book 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.

    Playing Big first came to my attention when it was published last year, in part due to its promotion in some feminist and quasi-feminist spaces I participate in online. But I wasn't sure enough of the...

    So I'm just getting into the message of this book and it challenges me to think differently. At 58 years old that may be difficult because some things are so ingrained, but I will give it a try becaus...

    3,5/5 - Na mijn valse start met de kurkdroge Nederlandse vertaling (alleszins, de inleiding was te droog, verder ben ik niet geraakt), ben ik naar de audioboek versie van dit boek beginnen luisteren. ...

    I won this in a Good Reads First Reads drawing! 3.5 stars. With a bit of editing or tightening, I think the final book would be almost 4 stars. The introduction is almost 30 pages, and the chapter len...

    Amazing. "The past was a world defined, designed and led by men. The future - we hope - will be a world defined, designed and led by women and men. The present is the transition. Those of us born into...
