Book review: Playing Big: Find Your Voice, Your Mission, Your Message by Tara Mohr
I can’t recommend this book enough. Tara provides us with a comprehensive ‘how to’ guide on playing big in your career, finding your mission and your message.
The advice is practical and easy to incorporate into your life and therefore, in my view, likely to have a positive impact for you.
It’s a great read as the author has an easy and ‘big sister’ tone. She does this by combining warmth, academic research and ‘saying it as it is.’
Case studies are drawn not only from clients but her own experiences of overcoming the same challenges, the book is not at all preachy
The topics Tara covers include
- Your best self
- Dealing with your inner critic
- My favourite – living your purpose
- Managing your fears
- Communicating with impact and much much more.
This book comes in a range of formats from a traditional book, audio, and kindle. Something for all your needs.
As we head into new year, if you read only one book this winter, this is the one.

So where have I been? Because it’s been ages. Two words: America and Canada. I’ll come onto Canada later. Today we start with America.
In October I had the most amazing time in New Haven, about an hour from New York. I went to Yale University to study Leadership. I met some amazing women from around the world; Ghana, Austria, France, California, Mexico, United Emirates… and the list go on. It was truly humbling.
I learnt a lot. In fact my action plan has 63 entries. There was however, one binding lesson running through all the topics. Weather we were discussing negotiation, decision making, giving feedback, innovation or crisis management.
I learnt that good leadership has nothing to do with you and your own personal needs. It’s about being in service to your team and, the objectives of the organisation. Nothing to do with you! Not one bit. Being a leader means to serve others. Full stop.
