Podcast Episode #55 // Playing Big with Tara Mohr

This week we’re welcoming Tara Mohr, an expert on women’s leadership and well-being. Tara helps women play bigger in sharing their voices and bringing forward their ideas in work and in life. Tara’s book, Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead, named a best book of the year by Apple’s iBooks (and we highly recommend it too!), shares her model for making the journey from playing small—being held back by fear and self-doubt—to playing big, taking bold action to pursue what you see as your callings. Tara takes a unique approach that blends inner work and practical skills training and she joins us this week to share her knowledge to our bosses on Being Boss.
