In her new book, Playing Big, groundbreaking women’s leadership expert and popular conference speaker, Tara Mohr, gives women the practical skills to voice and implement the changes they want to see—in themselves and in the world.
Playing Big is not a book that shows you how to fit in with other people’s ideas of what constitutes a big successful life and career. Instead, it is a book that helps you to identify your real calling in life and guides you on how to make living that calling a reality, instead of it just being a dream. It makes you realise that you actually have a lot of the answers to many of the biggest challenges facing you or holding you back from living that bigger life you want for yourself. Basically, it helps you to become the change agent of your own life and to think about the big picture ahead and what you need to get there.
Playing Big provides real, practical tools to help women quiet their own inner self-doubt (particularly useful for those women thinking of taking that huge first step and launching new businesses or creating innovative new products that could change the world). The book also helps women to identify their real callings in life, and this is particularly helpful for those women who are perhaps looking to turn their current leisure interests or personal passions into their future entrepreneurial ventures. In the spirit of just doing it, the book also guides the reader on how to take bold action and to make the move from just thinking about doing something new, into actually turning those thoughts into reality.
“We need women’s voices more, more women in leadership positions, more women sharing their ideas. And we need that all over the world.”
