Do you feel called to help women and girls step into their full potential? Do you long to help the women around you – whether clients, mentees, team members, students – develop greater confidence, creativity and leadership?


Are you tired of seeing the brilliant women around you held back by self-doubt, perfectionism, and the biases they encounter?


Do you know it’s time to move into your own playing bigger?


If this is you, learn more about the Playing Big Facilitators Training.


Our training has two layers:

Layer One

Stepping into Your  Playing Bigger

Inside of you, there is a longing to play bigger. A longing to speak up more, to make a career change, to share your story, or to reach more people with your work.

In the Playing Big Facilitators Training, you’ll get the tools and support to play bigger in your work and life – starting now. Our participants experience amazing results: Entrepreneurs launch or grow their businesses. Women working inside organizations take on more fulfilling roles, and share their voices more boldly.

You’ll learn how to quiet self-doubt, move through fear, let go of over-preparing and perfectionism, uncover your own wisdom – and much more – through the proven Playing Big model, with live coaching, teaching, and support from me every week.

Layer Two

Empowering Women & Girls to Play Bigger

Imagine: What if you knew just what to say – and what to do – when a brilliant woman in your life was mired in self-criticism? What if you knew how to help her move past a fear? What if, within a few minutes of asking a few key questions, you could help her access her own unfailing inner wisdom?

It’s possible. Over the past decade, the thousands of women who experience the Playing Big tools report that as a result they 1) feel more confident 2) share their unique ideas more boldly 3) can more easily access their inner wisdom and 4) are playing bigger in their work.

What would it mean for you to be able to bring those kinds of changes to the people you serve? The Playing Big Facilitators Training is where you will learn to do just that. Through live teaching, coaching, and training in this program, I share everything I’ve learned about how to help women and girls play bigger.

This training is accredited by International Coach Federation (ICF) for 46.5 Continuing Coach Education (CCE) units.

Tara Mohr

Dear Brilliant Woman,

Early in my work coaching women, I started to notice something: my brilliant women clients simply couldn’t see their own brilliance. They didn’t see how ready they were to go for their aspirations, to do the work they most longed to do, to bring their visions into reality.

I was quite attuned to this because I was in the same struggle myself. I’d turned my back on my longing for a creative, entrepreneurial career and settled for an office job that looked fine from the outside, but that was not what I truly felt called to do. And I had every reason to feel confident: I’d been a high achiever in my career so far, and a good student in school, yet I found myself holding back out of fear and self-doubt in my work – tentative about my ideas, quiet with my voice.

The discomfort of that feeling – of hiding, of being on the not-right-path-for-me – started to grow. Slowly, with lots of support and inner work, I uncovered some buried dreams. I learned to quiet my inner critic enough to start writing again, and got trained as a coach so I could do the work I felt called to, at the intersection of personal growth and women’s empowerment.

But I found that even as I moved into my right work – writing, leading groups, coaching – yes there was more joy, but those same inner challenges got in my way: self-doubt, perfectionism, a kind of hiding. I could see I needed to learn new ways of being if I wanted to truly share my voice and have real impact.

So, my own journey and my coaching practice became laboratories to discover: what tools and changes really make the biggest difference in helping women play bigger?

I spent a long time studying and living that question. I learned there are essential stepping stones on that journey to playing bigger: the inner work of learning to manage self-doubt, find one’s own inner wisdom, navigate fear, and unhook from praise and criticism. And there’s also the practical learning – about how to communicate more powerfully, launch and test ideas more effectively, and combine meaningful work and caregiving.

These and other key elements are what I now share and support women in moving through, using the Playing Big model, which has now helped tens of thousands of women around the world achieve the impact they want to have. These are also the tools that have helped me personally step into writing and publishing, public speaking and creating, and doing the work that I most love to do for the past decade.

In this program, I share what I’ve learned with a community of practitioners – coaches, therapists, managers, academics, mentors, leadership development professionals and others – who feel called, as I do, to advance women’s empowerment in this remarkable historical moment. If you join us, you’ll learn tools and skills to dramatically expand the impact of your work. And you’ll find yourself welcomed into our global community of heart-centered dynamic women.

When we feel called to playing bigger, I believe it means something wonderful and important is calling to us. But the road is also riddled with challenges – both inner and outer. The Playing Big Facilitators Training community is all here to enable you to walk your journey to your authentic playing big and bring this work to others.

  • If you are tired of women playing small…
  • If you want to help forge a world where ethical, visionary, wise women lead and hold power
  • If you’d love to create amazing results for the clients, team members, mentees you work with…
  • If you know the toolkit you’ve been working with is fine, but not the full palette needed to support contemporary women…
  • If you suspect there is something to discover about your own playing big right now…

I hope you’ll join us.

I look forward to support you.

With love,

About Tara Mohr

Tara Sophia Mohr

I bring to this program

  • Fifteen years of experience helping women empower themselves and achieve their dreams. I’ve coached hundreds of women to start shining brightly and doing their unique work in the world, boldly.
  • With me, you get a very unique hybrid. You get the the practical, grounded in the ‘real world’ side: I received my MBA from Stanford University. I have extensive training in leadership, negotiation, communication, entrepreneurship, and business.
  • You also get the psychological and spiritual side. I am a certified coach, spiritual seeker, poet, and a woman with an understanding of the inner transformation needed for playing big.
  • And then there’s my personal journey. I’ve walked my own personal journey from playing small to playing bigger. Of course, I’m still growing, but I’m happy to say I’ve left what felt like a compromise career and created a life that feels wildly aligned with who I really am, my greatest loves, and the legacy I hope to leave.
Tara Mohr

Some more things about my background: I’m the author of Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead, published by Penguin, and named a Best Book of the Year by Apple’s iBooks.

I’m also creator and teacher of the acclaimed Playing Big leadership program for women, and Playing Big Facilitators Training for coaches, mentors and managers who support women in their personal and professional growth.

The Playing Big model has been featured on The Today Show and in publications ranging from The New York Times to goop to Harvard Business Review. I also love to share this work live with audiences, and have been a speaker at venues and companies including Watermark, TedxWomen, Emerging Women Live, Yelp and Intuit. The Playing Big model has been part of leadership development programs at Starbucks, Google, Aetna, Intuit, Bank of America, and many other companies, and also incorporated into middle and high schools around the world, supporting girls’ leadership development.

I earned my MBA from Stanford University and my undergraduate degree in English literature from Yale. My coaching training and certification is from CTI, the Coaches Training Institute. All of those educational experiences, combined with a lifelong love of personal growth work, inform the Playing Big approach.

I’m a mom of two little people, ages 2 & 4, and live in San Francisco where I love long hilly walks, superb coffee, and wearing cozy sweaters in the fog.


A Proven, Innovative Model

When you make the investment to be trained in the Playing Big model, you are choosing a proven approach that gets powerful results:

  • 94% of women who have been trained in the Playing Big model report that as a result of the Playing Big tools, they can tap into their own inner wisdom more easily
  • 93% report they feel more confident
  • 90% report they feel reconnected to their passion and dreams for their lives
  • 93% are taking more action to pursue a calling
  • 91% share their ideas more frequently
  • 78% feel better prepared to negotiate on their own behalf
  • 85% are taking more initiative at work
  • 95% feel a greater sense that they are “enough” to do what they aim to do in the world

What would it be like to experience these powerful changes in yourself and to help bring them about for your clients, mentees and team members, too?

What Makes The Playing Big Model So Unique, And So Effective?

It’s a blended approach.
Bringing tools from the realms of coaching, leadership development, business, mindfulness, the latest social science research as well as ancient spiritual traditions.

It’s based on what works.
The Playing Big model was organically developed out of what I found to create the most consistent, high-impact results across diverse women. It’s a proven model that’s been refined over time.

It’s experiential, practical and built for busy women.
We know you are busy. That’s why we have highly experiential learning and a flexible course format. What you learn is meant for busy women, too: quick and powerful practices that we can all apply in the moment when we are facing dilemmas and challenges.

It’s a hybrid of inner work and skills training.
You’ll do foundational inner work on topics such as the inner critic, fear, and our relationship to praise and criticism, and learn how to do this work with others. You’ll also get practical skills training in areas like communication and negotiation – and how to bring that to others, too. Participants can truly use the skills they learn, because they also have the tools to deal with the resistance and fear that will arise as they do so.

The Playing Big Facilitators Training Curriculum

This training is accredited by International Coach Federation (ICF) for 46.5 Continuing Coach Education (CCE) units.

Part I

Introduction & What Is Playing Big?

In this module, we talk about how to redefine playing big from the inside out. You’ll have a new sense of what playing big means to you (not what it means to your friends, family, coworkers and so on) – a vision for playing big that doesn’t feel stressful, or like it leaves you in a tug of war between your aspirations and your responsibilities. This is a true playing big that works with your whole life.

You’ll also be able to see your particular playing big in a much broader context of a global movement of women at this moment in history. Understanding how your piece of the puzzle fits into the whole can powerfully increase your clarity and motivation about what you are doing.

Part II

Inner Critic

We all grapple with self-doubt. You know the amazing things your clients, team members, mentees or students could do, and the joys they could experience, if only they weren’t being held back by insecurity. This module is about how to help them get there.

In this module, you will learn:

  • what’s universal for both women & men when it comes to self-doubt, and what the research tells us is particular to women
  • why encouraging the people you support to become more confident and affirming their strengths are not the most effective approaches to help them overcome insecurity
  • a model for understanding the connection between self-doubt and playing bigger
  • a set of simple, highly effective practices you can use yourself and that you can teach those you support to use when self-doubt arises, so that it no longer holds them back

You’ll also explore when and why self-doubt arises in your own professional, creative, and personal life and begin using in-the-moment practices that ensure that self-doubt doesn’t mislead you.

A core tenet of this training is that women and girls do not need to become “more confident,” but rather, that self-doubt will always be with us, and we can develop a new kind of relationship to self-doubt that prevents it from getting in our way.

Part III

Inner Mentor

Have you ever felt unsure what to do when someone you want to support – maybe a client, a mentee, a student – seems to be totally lost in a dilemma or problem? Maybe you’ve noticed they seem entirely “in their head” about it, or caught in worry, or stuck between two choices when none of them feels right.

What if you had a go-to tool to use in these situations that would immediately help them access a wise solution to their problem – one that felt “just right” for them. And what if you could use this same tool for yourself?

That’s just what the inner mentor tool does for us.

It also allows us to cast a clear vision for what we want to create with our work and our lives.

In this module, you will learn:

  • how to guide others in discovering their inner mentors, so that they can clarify their visions for the future, treat themselves with more compassion, and create a more authentic life and career
  • how to utilize the inner mentor tool so that the people you support can become their own wise guides – and you don’t have to know all the right answers all the time! This means you don’t have to understand others’ problems well (or even at all) to help them solve them. You just have to know how to skillfully use the inner mentor coaching tools with them.
  • the common pitfalls and challenges that come with use of this tool, and strategies to navigate around them
  • how to access and draw upon your own inner mentor as a powerful source of guidance and clarity in your own life and career. That means you can find calm with her when you feel stressed, clarity when you feel confused, and comfort when things are feeling really tough.

Unhooking from Praise and Criticism

If you are really honest with yourself, are you avoiding some important leaps forward in your work because you are worried about the criticism that might come? Or do you notice yourself feeling beholden to praise – whether rave reviews from clients or gold stars from a boss?

And what about the women you support? Would they be doing more authentic, game-changing work if they were less hooked on praise and criticism? What if you could help them unhook?

When women avoid criticism or depend on praise, we can’t innovate, share controversial ideas, or effect change.

In this module, you will learn:

  • How to recognize the hard-to-detect ways that attachment to praise and avoidance of criticism show up in women’s lives and careers, so you can help women navigate beyond them
  • six factors – historical, cultural and physiological – that cause women in particular to get hooked by praise and criticism, and how to talk about this important context with your clients
  • four transformational tools for helping yourself and those you work with become less seeking of praise and less uncomfortable with criticism, so that they can live their most authentic lives and do their most courageous work

I’m proud that the Playing Big approach to women’s relationship to praise and criticism has been recognized widely by publications ranging from goop to Harvard Business Review, and was the subject of my #1 New York Times editorial.


Callings & Fear

Maybe you have a sense of what’s calling you, but it feels very hard to trust that the calling is attainable. Or maybe you feel like you just don’t know what your calling is. Maybe you see the women you support coming to you with big dreams and longings, but lots of fear around them – and you aren’t sure how best to support them in moving forward.

It can often feel like a difficult mystery, this work of discovering what our callings are, taking action to actualize them, and helping others do the same. But it doesn’t need to feel like a mystery. There are recognizable ways our callings show up, common objections we develop out of fear, and helpful tools for moving past resistance and taking action around even the callings that seem most impossible to bring to life.

Helping the people we support to live their callings and living our own is perhaps some of the most sacred and joyful work we can do.

In this module, you will learn:

  • the eight common ways callings often show up for women, so that you can recognize your callings and help your clients and mentees identify their own
  • how to support someone through the process of discerning what their current callings are, and starting to take simple, low-risk action to live their calling (and your own)
  • the 2000-year test we can all benefit from doing with our callings
  • how to support an individual in letting go of a calling that is coming to a close (including your own)

In this module, you’ll also learn Tara’s innovative approach for moving through fear, including:

  • the two types of fear and why we need to react differently to each
  • how to discern which type of fear is arising in your clients, mentees, or team members and how to work with them effectively around that fear
  • how to apply this model to your own present fears and learn to live with fear in a new, healthy, and even comfortable way

Hiding, Leaping & Leaving Good Student Habits Behind

Getting one more degree. Putting off an important career step because it seems like a few other steps need to happen first. Launching a big project gathering women’s voices or perspectives on an important topic.

These are just a few of the things brilliant women do that look just fine from the outside, but are often hiding strategies.

What if instead of hiding in these ways, you knew how to take rapid action to move your dreams into reality, and you knew how to help other women do the same?

In this module you’ll learn:

  • eight common strategies brilliant women use to hide, so you can pinpoint a hiding strategy when it shows up for you or a woman you support
  • what we can do instead of hiding – a powerful kind of action which in the Playing Big model we call leaping – a unique and structured way of gathering feedback and making progress toward a goal
  • the six criteria that must be present for an action to truly be a Playing Big leap, so you can begin leaping in your own life & work
  • how to bring the leaping way into your work with others, so their desired results come to them more quickly
  • the shift in skills both you and those you support will need in order to make the move from performing well in school to playing big in the career world
  • the specific ways you may need to work with women who were high achievers in school, the key new skills to develop in your work with them, and the unique challenges you can expect them to face on their playing big journey

Negotiation & Communicating with Power

“I just think…” “I actually disagree…” “I’m no expert in this but,…”

These are just a few of the “little things” women do in their communication that really aren’t so little; they have a big impact in undermining how powerfully we come across.

In this module, you’ll learn:

  • the common habits women use in their speech and writing that decrease our influence
  • how to start removing these from your own communication
  • why we use these undermining habits, and how we can better navigate the “double-bind” women face today – the choice between appearing likable or confident
  • how to work with your clients to help them more consciously and effectively do their tightrope walk between perceived competence and likability at work,
  • the differing contexts women face working in the domains of corporate life, the social sector, and entrepreneurship

In this module, we’ll also cover negotiation. All of us negotiate, in one form or another, every day. All too often, good girl norms, fears, and lack of training and practice cause us to give away our power in these conversations.

In this module, you’ll learn:

  • how to dramatically change your comfort and success in negotiations by changing your mindset and approach
  • why 90% of the outcome of a negotiation is determined before it starts, and the 10 key steps of preparing for a negotiation conversation
  • a roadmap for 1) preparing for and 2) moving through any conversation in which parties have differing interests and goals but must co-create a solution (including with family members, friends, colleagues, clients and more)

Let it Be Easy: Alternatives to Self-Discipline

All of us have sat with clients, team members, mentees, or loved ones who are disappointed and confused about why they’ve lost motivation toward an important goal, or betrayed themselves through procrastination or self-sabotage. Likely, at some point in your life or career, you too have relied on self-discipline to achieve something, only to find that it failed you.

In this module, you will learn the top misconceptions we have about motivation, and how to work with your clients, mentees, or team members to set up effective action plans to achieve their professional, personal, and creative goals, and how to do the same for yourself.


Conclusion & Integration

In our Concluding Session, we look at the big concepts and weave major ideas from the course together. We’ll talk about how all the pieces fit together and deepen our knowledge of what coaching tools to use when. We also look forward – and I’ll support you in a process to identify your goals and priorities for the next phase of your playing big journey. We have lots of fun celebrating our journey together, too!

After we finish, you get access to great bonus content on Getting Your Message Out, Getting Things Done, and more about my own personal playing big lessons learned.

Part X

After the Course

After the formal close of the course, your journey doesn’t end. You’ll continue to receive a number of resources to support you:

  • Invitation to attend future course sessions to continue your work – for free! Our alum participate again at no cost, to continue to receive support on their Playing Big journeys and to continue practicing the Playing Big coaching tools.
  • Ongoing membership in our private Facilitators Training online discussion group and global community
  • Optional regular support messages and reminders via text – helpful reminders that catch you when life is busy and help you get back on track

This training is accredited by International Coach Federation (ICF) for 46.5 Continuing Coach Education (CCE) units.

She has the gift of making the complex approachable and bringing spirit into the world of development and of business. I am a huge fan!”

Dorian Baroni
Founder, Women Agents Of Change

“Tara’s course has been amazing for me personally as well as professionally. Her tools are powerful in helping us as women see what we need to shift in ourselves in order to be the force we want to be in the world. When those shifts happen internally, they are noticed by others externally and it’s a ripple effect, changing the way women are in the world. It’s what we need right now in the world!”

I would highly recommend it to others looking to enhance their skills in working with women – a very good investment of time and money.”

Lisa Florit
Leadership Coach and Facilitator

“The Playing Big Facilitators Training has taken my coaching practice to a deeper level. With Inner Mentor and Inner Critic work as a foundational language with my clients, I have been able to facilitate shifts in perspective and daily practices far seamlessly than I had in the past. I truly feel like I have left with an additional toolkit that can stand alone or integrate into my existing work. Tara’s work fits into private practice and corporate settings, and is easily translated to different organizational cultures. I’ve quickly been able to apply what I learned to professional and personal coaching scenarios and to professional development sessions. The fact that these very tools created major transformation for me made this training a gift to both myself and my coaching. It feels natural and necessary to raise the Playing Big tools to the forefront of my sessions. This transformational work MUST be shared.”

Krysta McNutt

“My practice is on a roll. The skills and ideas I have learned in Tara’s program have blended so well with my other training. I am now confident that I have a strong, complete set of tools that I KNOW will be helpful for my clients. That confidence helps me market and price my services in a way that (finally) feels like it honors and reflects my value.”

“As a Playing Big alumni, joining this training was a no brainer. It surpassed my expectations in every way. It’s a beautifully designed course with sensitive, experiential learning at its core. It drives so much depth into Tara’s incredible tools. When I weave Playing Big tools and techniques into my groups, and when mentoring clients and students, magic always happens. It’s awe inspiring to watch women have those ‘Aha’ moments. To witness them step truly into themselves with ease and from a place of joy, celebrate in their gifts and align with their BIG-ness. Powerful and incredible! Tara, your generosity in sharing your work and expertise are inspirational. I feel privileged to have been a part and to have grown with other exceptional women. I am so excited to be taking the work I do to another level.”

“This was, hands down, the most well-conducted, relevant, practical and comprehensive training I have received as a coach. I could not recommend it more highly.”

Colleen Boselli
Executive Coach

“I am impressed that Tara is personally present at every call, delivers all the materials live, and creates space for questions and on-the-spot coaching. Her personal attention and presence at every call makes this course the incredible value that it is. Thank you for you Tara, and for what you do for women!

This training is opening me up to think bigger and “play” better with my fears without being held hostage to them; to move forward in every area of my life.

I am now able to coach my clients and the young leaders I oversee through their fear to playing bigger; assist them to trust their inner wise women with the inner mentor tool; help them understand the difference between being impacted by “praise/criticism” and being “hooked.” These two tools alone are opening up new doors and creating magic for them! None of these would have happened if I hadn’t taken the leap and signed up for this training.”

“The women in my Beyond the Empty Nest groups love the principles of Playing Big that I have incorporated into the programming. The new perspectives that they gain about their inner critics, their relationships with praise and criticism, and finding their true callings has helped empower them to leap into this next phase of their lives with confidence and excitement. The women who I coach are now Playing Bigger and so am I. I would recommend this training to any coach or therapist who is looking to make a bigger impact.”

Barbara Wasserman, LICSW, ACC

“Taking this course was the best decision I’ve made. My coaching feels richer and my clients are experiencing the joys of stretching and exercising their ability to deal with the blocks that surface. They feel empowered and I am loving being a witness of their growth (and mine!).”

Barbara Churchill

“This program has given me the ‘tribe’ I’ve been longing for. Tara has attracted an amazing group of women who embody the perfect blend of wit and warmth, intellect and insight, courage and compassion. I looked forward to each week’s materials, and even though I couldn’t be on many calls live, I listened to the recordings dutifully and felt deeply engaged all along. These skills have shifted how I approach my own life – in terms of how I relate to my fears, doubts, and goals – and my work with women. I am excited to be part of a group of women doing the courageous thing and playing big from the inside out.”

Dr. Jessica Michaelson
Life and Career Coach for Moms

“The Playing Big Facilitators Training has enabled me to scale up my work with female business owners and creatives. It’s given me practical tools to enable the women I work with to see past their fears and habits. Women often come to me feeling stuck or overwhelmed, and I now feel better able to support them in moving forward and empowering them to create the businesses they really want.”

Jenny Hyde

“The tools Tara shares in her book come to life in a Playing Big course. I use the skills gained not only coaching women around work and entrepreneurship but with my teen/tween children. I feel Playing Big should be required curriculum for women of all ages and stages.”

“Tara Mohr’s Playing Big has changed my life. I started the course amidst a terrifying professional transition. I was welcomed and supported by Tara’s dynamic community of women from all over the world who not only affirmed that there is room for my gifts in the world, but also encouraged me to leap into my brilliance with courage and conviction. Since starting the program my salary has more than doubled, I have started my own LLC, and strategized next steps for my personal and professional success, all while learning to live with, and not be paralyzed by, my inner critic. Playing Big, both the course and the book, is filled with engaging content and effective exercises that mine women’s innermost aspirations and dreams. As a professor and public religious leader, I cannot say enough about the difference Playing Big has made in my life. Playing small is no longer an option!”

Reverend Dr. Eboni Marshall Turman
Assistant Professor of Theology and African American Religion, Yale University Divinity School

“This course helped me to dig deep and learn to listen to my calling and help me make some key decisions about my career path. I feel confident that I am making decisions that are right for me using the tools I learned in the course. What a great experience. Thank you!!!”

Theresa E. Bartolotta, Ph.D.
Dean, School of Health Sciences at Stockton University

“I am so much more able to recognize the inner critic and gently shut her down when she pipes up. I no longer feel mad at myself for having an inner critic (my inner critic was so strong that she would criticize me for listening to her!). Thank you so much for helping me manage my habit of being unnecessarily hard on myself, which has been going on for most of my life!”

Naomi Bardach

“Playing Big offers great benefit for academics, helping us better tap into our creativity, vision, and power. I am a faculty member at a women’s college; the mission of my work is to support women playing bigger. As a psychology researcher, I value empirically-supported strategies. As a health scholar, I aim to improve community well-being. As a mentor, I know that the most sustainable approach to developing leadership capacity is to acknowledge people in their messy, glorious complexity – including mind, body, heart. I only wish I knew about the Playing Big program earlier, as it profoundly supports each of these values. Tara delivers substantive, practical content – manageable even for those people with busy, full lives – that will stay with you long after the formal program is over.”

“Less than a year ago, I found myself seeking something more. While I had achieved most of my professional and personal goals, I knew there was more for me to learn, experience, and contribute to the world.

When I learned of the Playing Big course, I knew it was something I had to do for myself and for the women I wanted to serve. It was beyond excellent, and as an educator myself, I can attest to the quality of the materials and time spent working directly with Tara. She’s an authentic, compassionate, brilliant teacher.

More recently, I have started bringing the Playing Big model into my professional sphere. I hosted more than 50 women faculty and staff for an all-day retreat incorporating Playing Big concepts and tools. The response was so positive that I was invited to teach an online women’s leadership class. Of course, Playing Big is one of the required texts.

I’ve also used Tara’s work with my staff, all of whom are women. I bought them the book as a holiday gift, and we’ve adopted her key concepts into our everyday vernacular, allowing us to support each other so much more effectively. I have found her tools work with women at all levels of our organization. All of this, every single thing, I attribute to reading Playing Big and taking the Playing Big course. That was less than a year ago, and I am still on my path, leaping and learning every step of the way. ”

“I’ve experienced significant changes because of this program. I am able to put my learning, qualifications, and skills to best use because I communicate more clearly. I find that others are more clear about my role and contributions, which means they know when to come to me for input and when the request should go elsewhere. My profile is also growing in the industry, which is positive for the organization I work for. I manage my time better because I understand my role and worth, so delegate tasks more easily when appropriate. I also communicate more confidently with senior managers and with the people who report to me. I am generally more professional, happier, and putting energy into areas that align with the organization’s mission, as well as my own values.”

Joelle Adams
Adjunct Professor

“I’m EXTREMELY satisfied with what I got from this course! It is a collection of absolutely essential and brilliant tools that will be useful throughout my professional and personal life. THANK YOU for all the brilliance, work, thoughtfulness, knowledge, experience, connections, and (very importantly!) the love and passion that you put into this course!”

“The tools in the Playing Big material and the Facilitators Training have shifted so much about how I think about my own inner voices and how I structure my own goals and actions. I think the wisdom of this material is immense and immediately applicable to all women. I have already recommended the Playing Big book and the training to at least a dozen women, and I will continue to endorse this program moving forward. Tara and her team are doing yeoman’s work in this world, and I thank them for it!”

About the Impact of the Playing Big Model on Their Work & Their Teams

“Tara’s classes have completely changed the way I think about leading and mentoring inside and outside of the workplace. I have a box of Playing Big books under my desk to give away to whoever asks for one, because I find Tara’s approach so effective and wise. It has changed my life, and it might change theirs.

Taking the Playing Big class gave me a critical set of tools to work through feelings and behaviors that held me back. The Facilitators Training taught me how to use these tools to mentor and coach women around me that want to play bigger. Tara’s approach gave me a strong conceptual framework and words to describe and deal with our inner critics, our fears, our discomfort with feedback and criticism, and our resistance to act on the very things that we care about the most.”

Antonella Pavese
Senior Staff UX Researcher at Google

“Playing Big deeply shifted my leadership and my life; how I see myself, how I call on my own inner (powerful) leader, and how business partners experience me. Prior to Playing Big, I’d received feedback, “You have the goods, just show up like you do! You are not owning all of what you offer or who you are.” After the course, I received feedback that my leadership presence had dramatically shifted. I was showing up clearer, stronger and more vibrant. I was leading with less “noise” yet greater impact. I now take on challenges with elevated curiosity, thoughtful and intentional communication, and an overall more confident way of being. This catapult in growth has been validated by performance reviews, feedback from peers and (most exciting) the trajectory for which I see (and am driving) my career and future.”

Playing Big program graduate, Director at Nike

“This is an amazing course! It helped me figure out what my ‘playing bigger’ looks like and how it could be different as life evolves. The course is a nice balance of practical tools, self-reflection and guidance from Tara and resonant stories from others. I thought it was fabulous I could do this with my own time and without judgment. I would highly recommend this (and have been) to other women who desire to make a bigger difference in their lives in an authentic way.”

Zeryn Sarpangal
Vice President of Human Resources & Corporate Affairs, Achaogen, Inc.

“Professional development and mentoring conversations around subjects such as fear, doubt and self-criticism can often be awkward in the office setting. Playing Big gave me the deep insights and courage to approach these subjects with my team and mentees in more a thoughtful, empathetic manner. In finally addressing these once “taboo” subjects head on, my teams and mentees accelerated their personal growth and effectiveness across the organization.”

Jennifer Dimaris
Former VP of Marketing, Starbucks Coffee Company

“Tara’s Playing Big model has made a significant difference in my own career, and through me in the careers of women I have mentored. In working through the exercises myself, I learned to make friends with my inner critic and to recognize when I was limiting myself through self-talk, communication style and other habitual patterns. This greater compassionate self-awareness has not only allowed me to grow, it has also helped me to be a better mentor to women I manage. It has been so satisfying to see them grow and thrive.”

Eleanor Bell, PhD

Former Director of Strategy Planning & Management, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

“Tara is a brilliant Playing Big guide. She challenges women using courage and compassion to stop playing small and take a leap to achieve the breakthrough that they know is possible but don’t know how to make it happen. Tara has a game changing approach.”

Trudy Bourgeois
President & CEO, The Center for Workforce Excellence

“The Playing Big model provided a framework for me to enhance my own leadership as a school administrator. Last year, when pitching several ideas to my school administration, I drew upon the Playing Big course and materials for guidance and encouragement. The Playing Big model has also been an integral part of our school’s leadership training for adolescent girls. The students resonate and can identify with Tara’s work, whether we are discussing inner critic, inner mentor or diminishing language.”

Betsy Briardy
Middle School Dean of Students; Director of the Center for How Girls Learn

“Reading Playing Big was such a transformational experience that I didn’t think there was more for me to experience personally. But taking the Facilitators Training was as helpful to me in my personal growth as it has been in giving me tools to share Tara’s work with others. It was so wonderful to immediately apply what I was learning into my job, my mentoring relationships, and my facilitation work with women.”

Rebecca Magee
Manger of Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship, Eileen Fisher

“This was the best online course I have ever completed. I always felt completely energised after each weekly call. So engaging and practical for both myself and the people I wish to serve. What a super team of women who run this and support us through every step. I can’t recommend it enough.”

Sara Slattery
Community Worker & Women’s Coach

“I have gone through numerous leadership trainings (covering many of the same topics), but Playing Big really struck a cord. Maybe because we are focusing on “women specific” challenges for each topic, but mostly because of the delivery – the images used, the targeted questions raised, and the practical exercises used to bring it home and make it personal. I had numerous “ah-ha” moments – there is no doubt playing big has helped me unlock what was holding me back and is setting me up for a successful return after my maternity leave.”

Valerie Pisano
Engagement Manager, McKinsey & Company

“Playing Big gives you practical tools to get out of your own way and live a life that is more authentic, confident, and joyful. The Facilitators Training enables coaches, mentors, teachers, parents, and others to help other women (and men) on their journey to ‘playing big,’ however they define it. The course also connects you to amazing women around the world. I loved the course and would highly recommend it!”

Rachel Lipton
Evaluation and Strategy Consultant for the For-Impact Sector

“I enrolled in the Playing Big program a year into my first management job. I was inspired and regularly brought the topics back to team meetings and check-ins for discussion, opening up space for conversations on the things that were personally holding us back. Once we brought them out in the open, we were able to more effectively move forward together toward bigger goals and opportunities. The Playing Big model helped me develop my style and philosophy for management, making me a much better manager early on and more prepared as I transitioned into new organizations and teams.”

“Tara Mohr’s Playing Big has changed my life. I started the course amidst a terrifying professional transition. I was welcomed and supported by Tara’s dynamic community of women from all over the world who not only affirmed that there is room for my gifts in the world, but also encouraged me to leap into my brilliance with courage and conviction. Since starting the program my salary has more than doubled, I have started my own LLC, and strategized next steps for my personal and professional success, all while learning to live with, and not be paralyzed by, my inner critic. Playing Big, both the course and the book, is filled with engaging content and effective exercises that mine women’s innermost aspirations and dreams. As a professor and public religious leader, I cannot say enough about the difference Playing Big has made in my life. Playing small is no longer an option!”

Frequently Asked Questions

The Logistics

What’s the difference between this program and Tara’s regular Playing Big program?
Tara’s Playing Big program is for any woman who wants to play bigger in her life and career. It’s for women who want to clarify their callings, move past self-doubt, do work that brings them meaning and joy, and play bigger in their own way, on their own terms. The next session will begin in early 2020.

The Playing Big Facilitators Training is specifically for women who want to integrate the Playing Big model in their work supporting others. You’ll receive a dual level training:
  1. to apply the Playing Big model and tools in your own life and work and
  2. to learn how to use the model and tools with those you support, whether clients, mentees, students, or team members.
Program attendees include coaches, therapists, educators, women in academia, managers and mentors. Because much of the learning builds upon basic coaching skills, we provide a Coaching Skills 101 supplemental workshop and recommend attending if you do not have previous coaching or counseling training.

If the Facilitators Training is not for you but you are interested in the general Playing Big program, click here to sign up to receive updates and information on that program.
What’s the schedule?
We are currently in session with the Facilitators Training. Our next session will begin in October 2019. Sign up below to get on the advanced notice list and you’ll be first to know when registration opens again (plus get early bird discounts!).
What’s the time commitment for this?
For most participants who are moving along with us module by module, it’s two and a half to three hours a week. That includes our 90-minute weekly calls, reading, worksheets, supplementary curriculum materials, and time for you to participate in online discussion forums if you wish. However, we make it very easy to skip a week (or more) when you need to and pick up again with the current module – leaving you free to make up the missed material whenever you can.
What if I can’t attend the live sessions?
All of our sessions will be recorded and posted within 24 hours, available as video and audio recordings. We also provide full written transcripts. If you’re not able to attend our lab calls, you can always connect with another participant in our community forum and practice together at your convenience. We provide lab call materials that you can use together at any time.
Will I get to work with Tara one-on-one?
The program takes place in a group format, within which each individual member will have the opportunity to share challenges, reflect on their learnings, and ask questions with individual feedback from Tara. Our weekly calls are highly interactive – Tara is live on the calls, these are not pre-recorded. If you’re not able to attend a session, you can always submit questions ahead of time and then listen to the recording.
What will the community aspect of this program be like?
The Facilitators Training is also an opportunity to find fellow practitioners with a shared interest in women’s leadership and empowerment, and to enhance your own network of colleagues, potential collaborators, mentors and mentees. We have an incredible community of like-minded women from around the world. There are optional ways to engage with the community: our online discussion group (hosted outside of mainstream social media) and our virtual meet-up sessions where you can connect for conversation with other students. Through our discussion platform, it’s easy to find other members who do similar work, have a skill you need help with, or who are in your local area.
What is the typical age of course participants?
First of all, if you are asking yourself this question and wondering if you’ll be in a different stage of life than the group, we want you to know you aren’t alone! This question comes up a lot for women considering the program. The typical age range of the Playing Big course participants is 30s to mid-60s. We have many women who are mid-career and are moving into new kinds of playing big at this stage.

We also have many women who connect with this community when they are on the verge of retirement or are thinking of pursuing a new calling in their 50s, 60s or beyond. Sometimes, these women know what that calling is, and sometimes they aren’t sure yet or are weighing many possible directions. You will be in good company and our private discussion group will allow you to connect with women who are at a similar stage in life to you.

Barbara, one of our alum who works with (mostly) retired women, incorporates Playing Big into her coaching and has this to say about the Playing Big model:

“The women in my Beyond The Empty Nest groups love the principles of Playing Big that I have incorporated into the programming. The new perspectives that they gain about their inner critics, their relationships with praise and criticism and finding their true callings has helped empower them to leap into this next phase of their lives with confidence and excitement. The women who I coach are now Playing Bigger and so am I…”

     ~ Barbara Wasserman, LICSW, ACC, Midlife Transition Coach
Can I do this training if I am not a coach or leadership development professional?
Absolutely! We have many coaches in the program, but we also have women in academia, corporate managers, mentors, health care practitioners and others. We provide a Coaching Skills 101 workshop as a supplemental, optional part of the program and recommend you participate if you do not have a coaching or counseling background. The Coaching Skills 101 workshop is included with your Facilitators Training registration and runs for three 90-minute sessions, taught by coaching expert Cynthia Loy Darst. All sessions will be recorded and transcribed as well. This is a purely optional element but a great supplemental resource (for seasoned coaches as well!).
What’s the investment?
The cost of the program is $2699 when paid in full, or you can choose the 8-month payment option for $374/month.
How long do I have access to the course materials?
During the Facilitators Training, we’ll provide you with multiple ways to download and save all materials. At the conclusion of the program, we’ll provide you with a Dropbox link that has all the course materials in one easy-to-access location that is yours forever, and you’ll also have access to the course site for an additional six months.
Will I be “certified” through this program?
This is not a certification or a licensing program. It’s a training program that equips you to use the Playing Big tools in your work for powerful impact with those you coach, mentor, and teach. If you would like to state that you have “completed the Playing Big Facilitators Training with Tara Mohr,” at the close of the program you’ll simply:
  1. confirm that you’ve participated in all modules
  2. complete a written assessment to demonstrate your learnings.
Then you are free – and encouraged! – to share that you’ve taken this training program.

The Playing Big Facilitators Training is also accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF). Upon completion, coaches will receive certification for 46.5 Continuing Coach Education (CCE) units – 21 in Core Competencies.
Will I receive ICF CCE units?
CCE Logo This training is accredited by International Coach Federation (ICF) for 46.5 Continuing Coach Education (CCE) units – 21 in Core Competencies and 25.5 in Resource Development. At the close of the program, if you would like to receive certification for these CCE units, you’ll simply:
  1. confirm that you’ve participated in all modules
  2. confirm that you’ve attended at least 10 of the course calls live, at the time that they were held
  3. complete the final written assessment to demonstrate your learnings

Integration With Your Current Work

I want to keep using the tools/methodology I’m currently trained in. How does Playing Big integrate with other models?
The Playing Big model offers a set of tools and concepts that you can easily integrate into your own approach to managing, mentoring, advising or coaching. For example, therapists can apply the Playing Big facilitation tools and concepts, using their own theoretical orientation lens, to help clients improve coping skills, increase self esteem, and foster greater resilience. Or as a manager, you might use the Playing Big toolkit to complement your existing one, particularly when helping team members around issues of confidence, voice, and leadership development.
Will this program give me materials for leading Playing Big classes or workshops? Am I becoming an official “Playing Big coach?”
No. Big picture, the goal of the training is to give you a set of tools, skills and ideas that you can integrate into your existing work. This training is about strengthening the inside of what you do, to get more powerful results, rather than giving you a specific new offering to share. Here’s how this model plays out in practical terms:
  • You can freely incorporate everything you learn from the training into your work with one-on-one clients. If you are leading group workshops on, for example, women’s careers or wellbeing, we encourage you to use what you’ve learned in the training, crediting Tara/Playing Big for the tools and concepts you incorporate.
  • If you use Playing Big written materials, participants of groups/workshops would obtain copies of the Playing Big book, to be compliant with US copyright law.
  • Graduates are free to share they’ve completed the Playing Big Facilitators Training with Tara Mohr as part of how they describe their approach and training.
  • However, we are not authorizing participants to teach Playing Big branded workshops or do Playing Big branded coaching, because we do not want to constrain what and how participants share the work.
This is all about having a toolkit to incorporate, not about obtaining permission to offer a distinct product or service in your business. Why? I’m passionate about every woman developing her own unique body of work that utilizes a variety of tools but with her own mission, flavor, and ingredient mix. I want you to learn the tools, integrate them, and use them how you see fit.
Can these tools be used with men, too?
The Playing Big curriculum was developed for and with women, out of a passion for bringing women’s voices to the fore. However, we regularly hear from men using the model with great success in their lives and careers. You can expect to complete the program with a model for empowering the women and men you work with, and with deep knowledge in common patterns around how women play small and what helps them play bigger.
My employer sometimes sponsors professional development. Do you have something I can give them?
Yes, we have a document you can provide your employer. Click here to download the Playing Big for Professional Development Program Guide.

I’m wondering…

Many of the women I work with already have such high expectations for themselves and are overtaxed. I often feel the same way. I’m not sure we should be putting the emphasis on playing bigger!
This program teaches an inside-out definition of playing big. Playing big isn’t about striving harder or doing more. It is about honestly accepting one’s true aspirations and callings and playing big in going for them. Because it leads to women being more aligned with their authentic selves, and more tapped into their passions, it generally creates more energy, less stress, and far less striving in women’s lives. It’s an alternative to perfectionistic go-go-going, a deeper path of self-actualization.
I don’t do so well with online and distance learning. Might this work for me?
It’s a great question. Here are a few things to keep in mind: The course materials are always simple to access. The course combines written materials, worksheets and exercises, live calls, and recorded audio and video learning. The variety of formats means you’ll be able to digest the material in ways that work for you.

Because Tara’s programs are highly experiential and interactive, we don’t experience the attrition or weak learning outcomes that many distance-learning programs do. The pluses of a distance-learning approach are that you’ll connect with like-minded women from all over the world and that you can learn/participate in a way that works easily with your schedule.
What is your refund policy?
If within the first 30 days of the program, you find the program isn’t working for you, and you have submitted your completed program materials and worksheets from the course to date, you may request a cancellation of your membership and receive a refund.
Honestly, I feel intimidated and nervous about signing up.
You aren’t alone. Many women hear a voice in their head saying, “You won’t fit in with this crowd of women,” or “Who do you think you are?”

Here’s why: The part of you that loves perfectionism and the familiar, the part that keeps putting off playing big for just another couple years …? That part of you is shakin’ in its boots, knowing that signing up for this program will mean shaking things up.

Signing up for playing big is a significant first step toward playing bigger. Fear and the inner critic will naturally come up.

By the end of the course, you’ll be such an expert in how to deal with this you’ll be smiling looking back at this moment.

But for now, can you notice this scared and critical part of you but not take direction from it?

Let your aspirations, your passion, your hopes — not fear or the inner critic — be in charge of the decision to sign up.
I’m just not sure.
Well, if you were my coaching client I’d ask you to:
  • Check in with your body: How does the idea of registering feel in your body — good and exciting? Good but scary/exhilarating? Those are good signs.
  • Notice what part of you is hesitant: Your inner wisdom? Listen up. Inner critic? Voice of fear? Not good voices to listen to. Question what they are saying. Especially question any voices telling you that you somehow don’t measure up to being in this group, or won’t be able to “do it right,” or that the time to do this has to be just right.
  • Explore: Is there a particular fear or worry you have? If so, write it down and examine it in the light.
  • Ask yourself: If you knew you couldn’t fail at this, and that you’d fit in beautifully with the group — what would you do?
  • Reflect: What are your intentions for the coming year? Does this feel well aligned, or not?
