Playing Big: Tara Mohr

Posted By Linda Tucker on Jun 12, 2018 |

There is still so much work to be done in the realm of gender equality, but women like Tara Mohr are keeping the conversation in the forefront. Tara’s book, Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead, has been praised by bestselling authors like Elizabeth Gilbert—and for good reason. Tara’s insights dispel the myth that success insulates us from self-doubt, and reminds us that there are times when we will have to risk our likeability if we’re aiming for respect.

In this interview, Tara gives practical advice and tools for how to stop playing it safe and how to start “playing big” in life. If you’ve ever found yourself hiding behind the “steps” you’ve prescribed for chasing a dream, this interview is for you. Or, if you’ve ever felt your confidence wavering under the weight of criticism (even that harsh inner critic), Tara shows us how to find allies to give us support and honest feedback to keep us moving forward. Tara is pioneering a new way to embody both boldness and tenderness simultaneously, reminding us to to keep chasing the “good kind” of fear. We hope you’ll join us to hear how Tara’s story shows us that:

  • “Playing big” means being true to our dreams, longings, and aspirations
  • There are times when we have to risk our likeability in order to be respected
  • Our “inner-critic” shows up whenever we take some kind of emotional risk in life
  • How to respect and follow our “calling” without rationalizing it away
