Playing Big is about bridging the gap between what we see in you and what you know about yourself Its a practical guide to moving past self doubt and creating what you most want to createwhether in your career, in your community, or in a passion you pursue outside of work Its not about the old school notion of playing big money, prestigious title, a bigger empire, or fame Its about you living with a sense of greater freedom to express your voice and pursue your aspirations Its playing big according to what playing big truly means to you And if you dont know what playing big looks like for you yet, the ideas and tools here will help you discover that.This playing big is not about climbing the ladder within broken systems Its about learning how to use your voice to change those systems Its not about opting in or opting out according to our societys current thinking around what women should and shouldnt be doing Its about turning away from those narrow labels, refocusing your attention on your longings and dreams, and playing big in going for them.This book was born out of a frustration and a hope The frustration Brilliant women are playing small The hope That the world could be changedfor the much, much betterby our greater participation.Nisha was one of my first coaching clients in her early thirties long, flowing black hair always in bright colors that brought to life her beautiful face Nisha was a midlevel program manager at a nonprofit organization She was known there as a quiet, organized administrator, good at implementing others plans.Yet in our coaching sessions, I got to know a very different Nisha It turned out she was an avid learner who spent much of her free time reading the important journals and books related to her field She was a creative thinker, full of ideas for how her organization could improve its work by incorporating the latest thinking in the industry I happened to be very familiar with Nishas employer and, after just a few meetings with her, could see that she was thinking about the future of the organization in a way that was at least as sophisticated and smart, if not so, as the CEO and board were But no one in Nishas workplace knew any of this Nishas ideas and gifts were hidden They were not making it out of her head and heart and into her organization.Among my coaching clients, friends, and colleagues, I kept encountering women like Nisha brilliant women who couldnt quite see their own brilliance, women who were convinced their ideas needed perfecting or refinement or time before being put into action, or women whofor reasons they werent sure ofwere not moving forward toward their greatest aspirations and dreams It bothered me, a lot, because I wanted to live in the better, humane, enlightened world I knew these women could create.There was Elizabeth, another client, a dynamic former magazine editor who had adopted four children from abroad She wanted to write about her experiences of adopting Tara, she said to me, I feel like Ive learned so much about what motherhood is really about and what life is all about Yet everything I know and have learned from the past years of raising these childrenwell, when I look out into the world, its like its invisible No one is talking about it I read Elizabeths blog postsessays she wrote quickly in between carpool shifts and swimming lessons Her writing was powerful, and she was indeed talking about motherhood and love across borders in new and important ways I wanted to see her perspective in newspaper op eds and on bookstore shelves And yet despite Elizabeths many connections in the publishing industry, she was stuckheld back both by bouts of insecurity and by a sense of overwhelm and confusion about the practical steps to take.And then there was Cynthia Cynthia was a director of sales at a Silicon Valley tech company Super sharp and hardworking, Cynthia also had an incredible gift for mediating conflict But Cynthia was relatively bored in her jobhaving worked in the same kind of role for over a decade and never having enjoyed it much to begin with There was, however, another arena of the companys work that she was excited about, exploring a new line of business she felt could be very successful and bring customers a valuable new service When we talked about Cynthia pitching to the senior leadership that they invest in such a position and put her in it, she couldnt believe shed be able to get that kind of special opportunity.Each of these women had the potential to be shaping her organizations and communities in a much significant way than she was Each had the talent, intelligence, and training to easily achieve the dream that felt out of reach And each one was missing out on a lot of joy, fulfillment, and professional success as a result I believe that most of us are in some way like these womennot seeing how possible our big dreams are, not seeing our own capabilities, and not yet having careers as successful, easeful, and exhilarating as we could I was personally frustrated by what I was observing in my clients Nisha had powerful ideas and critiques that could help move her organization forward Cynthia was the kind of dedicated, ethical, collaborative leader we need of in the corporate world Elizabeths writings about service and mothering told an important story too hidden in our cultural conversation I wanted to see these kinds of brilliant women and their ideas impacting our world So for me, the question of how to get their voices out was personally urgent It was also professionally urgent, because they were coming to me for help.My coaching practice became a laboratory to discover What would enable these women to create the careers and lives they really wanted In coaching sessions, the rubber meets the road Its not enough to give advice that sounds good together with the client, youve got to produce the change that the client is seeking I needed to figure out What had to happen so that Nisha could become a respected leader in her organization So that Elizabeths writing would reach people beyond her friends and family So that Cynthia could do work that energized her each day There are the conventional answers confidence, good mentors, some accountability around the steps toward their goals I quickly learned by working with clients that none of those things helped much Tactics and tipshow to write a rsum, interview, negotiate, speak in front of a groupdidnt do the job, because women couldnt use all that new knowledge if the inner foundation for taking risks, overcoming fears, and dealing with self doubt wasnt in place Helping women develop relationships with mentors was mostly ineffectual, because without the tools to trust their own thinking and be discerning about mentors advice, theyd get lost in others opinions and depart from the course that was truly right for them The conventional supports didnt go deep enough they didnt get to what was holding women back or what they needed to move forward.What did help women play bigger was a set of concepts and practices that changed how they thought about themselves and the kind of action they took It was a set of movementsaway from listening to the voice of self doubt within and instead listening to a voice of calm and wisdom away from perfectionism and overplanning and toward a new way of taking quick action away from worrying about what other people thought and toward a focus on their own fulfillment away from self discipline and toward self care All those pieces worked together to create an inner infrastructure that supported women to go for their dreams boldly, to both overcome internal blocks and better deal with external challenges.The same set of tools and practices helped diverse women play bigger young women and older ones, corporate women and start up entrepreneurs, women in business, the social sector, and the arts After a few years of coaching women, I took the work Id been doing with my clients and created a group experience, a leadership program called Playing Big From its first session, it received rave reviews Today, over one thousand women from around the world have participated in the program Some have applied the work to playing big in high powered careers, others to a pursuit outside of work, like a creative passion or volunteer activity Im proud that participants report that as a result of the program, theyfeel confident.share their unique ideas, questions, and critiques frequently and boldly.are less afraid of criticism.are powerful communicators.can tap into their inner wisdom easily.feel a greater sense that they have and are enough to do what they want to do in their careers.see themselves as a part of a global network of women seeking to make positive change.are playing bigger according to what playing bigger means to them.As a result of those inner changes, theyve made the career moves they desired, received promotions and raises, launched and grown their businesses, and taken on leadership roles They started changing their communitiesand the worldin the ways they longed to but didnt think they could before In this book, youll learn what they learned so that you can walk your own path to playing bigger.My StoryIn some sense, this book began its journey into being than twenty years ago I was a fifteen year old, short shorts wearing, Red Hot Chili Peppersloving, wannabe rebel teenage girl On the first day of a new school year, I waited through chemistry lab nothing could have bored me , Spanish class so so, I thought , precalculus hated it , and, worst of all, P.E to get to the promised land English class English class the realm of characters and stories and poems and big ideaseverything I loved.Little did I know I was about to be very disappointed.Our teacher gave his first day of school introductory speech, leaning against a decaying metal desk with his arms folded and resting on his big belly This year well explore the theme of Coming of Agethe transition from childhood to adulthood Well read diverse stories of coming of age Black Boy by Richard Wright, A Separate Peace by John Knowles, Lord of the Flies by William Golding Well uncover the universal themes and challenges around this rite of passage.At first, I just noticed that I didnt feel very excited about any of the books Then I realized why None of the books were about a girl coming of age At fifteen years old I knew that girls coming of age and boys coming of age made for very different tales I wanted a story I could relate to.Then I noticed none of the books were written by women either I thought to myself, here was this grown up telling me we were going to learn about this subject fully, while we were really hearing only male voices I knew, even at fifteen, that my English class was not the only place like this In a thousand ways in my life, I could see, boys and mens stories were being told as the whole story.I felt a kind of pang in my chest and a rush of energy I knew I had to do something about this I went over to the teachers desk after class Mr Haverson Um, I wanted to ask you about something I noticed that none of the books are by women, and none of them are about girls coming of age It seems unbalanced.These are the books we have I dont have the budget to purchase any other books, he told me.Well, how could we raise the money I heard myself ask back.Within months, a committee had been formed, a few thousand dollars raised, and a curriculum plan approved The following year, new books written by women and featuring female protagonists were added to a number of English classes taught at the school.That was the beginning of what has become a lifelong calling for me to recognize where womens voices are missing and do what I can, in my corner of the world, to help bring them in.After high school, I went off to Yale and experienced in a different way how womens voices were missing Large portraits of the schools leaders graced the walls, but those portraits were never of women The tenured faculty was mostly male, and none of the books required for English majors to readnot onewas written by a woman Whenever someone got up to give a speech to the student body, it wasnt someone who looked like me Women were new arrivalspresent for only thirty of the schools nearly three hundred year history They had been allowed to join the institution and participate in it, but there had been no inquiry into how to significantly adapt the institution so that women and men would thrive equally there.When I graduated from college, I teamed up with two other women to create an anthology of Jewish womens writings about the Passover holiday, enabling families to add womens perspectives to a liturgy thatdespite being about freedom and oppressiontraditionally included no womens voices.A few years later, I surprised my friends and family by deciding that my next move would be to get an MBA I wasnt the typical business school candidate, but I was eager to learn the tools to grow mission driven organizations to significant scale Stanford Business School allowed me to do just that It also gave me a kind of crash course on the culture surrounding women in the corporate worlda culture which all too often resembles that of a frat house At both Yale and Stanford, I saw very clearly that its simply not enough for institutions created by and for men to open their doors to women Much needs to changethe norms, the practices, and the face of its leadershipto create a place where women can truly succeed.In all those experiences, I found myself longing for an environment equally shaped by women and men And there was a second kind of change I wanted to see as well that all the expertise about the external world these institutions had to offer would become integrated with wisdom about our inner lives, the internal reality that shaped external events.I had an unusual childhood I was seven years old before I learned that not all children analyzed their dreams each morning at the breakfast table with mom and dad, diagramming the archetypes on a yellow pad, next to the bowl of oatmeal When I came home with a childhood complaint like Johnny teased me at recess, I was usually met with What do you think is going on at home for Johnny that would cause him to tease other kids My parents werent psychotherapists, religious fanatics, or even hippies They were regular people who believed that understanding oneself and others was an essential part of living a happy life From an early age, I was encouraged to learn about psychology and spirituality from all traditionsEastern and Westernand apply tools from both areas to my daily life Our house was full of books on those subjects and I grew up reading them By the time I was a teenager, I was attending spiritual retreats and hanging out in the psychology section of the bookstore in my free time I used meditation, journaling, and therapy to help me survive the storm of adolescenceand they helped, a lot.In a thousand ways, my parents taught me that what happens in our inner lives shapes our outer realities At the same time, I navigated a very different landscape school At home I was being told all human beings were equally miraculous creations of the divine, but at school there was a lot of ranking of kids, classes for the gifted children and, therefore, the presumably not gifted ones At home I was taught that peoples inner lives and unconscious motivations drive their behavior, but the teachers lessons on presidents and prime ministers certainly never discussed their inner lives I couldnt figure out why at school we werent talking about how Lincolns early childhood impacted his decisions, or why we never discussed the underlying psychological dynamics that led to every escalation to war.Throughout my childhood, I often felt that I was living with one foot in each of two very different worlds One world was about thinking, the other about emotion One was about knowledge, the other about intuition One was about what we can see and touch and hear, the other was about the inner life that created that tangible reality.As I sought to weave together these two worlds, I moved between what Id now call times of playing big and times of playing small During some periods, I could remember what I truly lovedwriting, the arts, spirituality, entrepreneurship, creativity, womens empowerment, and being a part of a communityand I could build a life that was about those things But during many years, I was lost from all that My education helped develop my intellect, but the artist in me became lost along the way and I neglected my spiritual life I became a bit cynical about personal growth work, taking my cues from the academic culture around me rather than listening inward to what I knew to be true Worst of all, I developed some fabulous critical thinking skills but then applied them to my own dreams for my future, playing the skeptic instead of being an ally to myself.In my early thirties, I started to feel a disconnect from self that felt too painful to ignore, and I entered a process of significantly changing my life so that it reflected my real aspirations, both for my life and for my work I also began to look closely at my own self doubt and find my path to a confident way of moving through the world Many of the tools that helped me became tools I later used with my female coaching clients and in my leadership programs for womentools now included in this book.Helping Women Play BiggerAfter business school, I went to work at a major foundation with two billion dollars in assets One of the things I loved about the foundation, and one of the reasons Id taken the job there, was its many strong women leaders Nearly every part of the foundation was run by a talented, hardworking woman But the very top position of CEO had been held only by men for the one hundred years of the organizations existence.While I was there, a new CEO was brought in He was a young man who didnt have experience managing large organizations but had a great deal of talent, charisma, and potential Over the months that followed, his newly hired team launched major new initiatives quickly, without much research, testing, or planning, and allocated major dollars to them The senior women who had been slowly rising in the ranks as they painstakingly gained experience were overruled and passed over for promotions On than one occasion I heard those senior men ridicule the hardest working of those women as having no personal lives and call those who were most resistant to their decisions difficult.I was stunned, and I was learning I watched men move massive amounts of money and see their projects realizedeven though they hadnt done much homework on themwhile highly qualified women with important ideas to share stood on the sidelines both because they werent listened to and because they didnt feel those ideas were ready for prime time.Growing up in the eighties and nineties, I had been told that women had equal opportunity in the workplace now, that young women like me had nothing to worry about, that if anything still stood in the way of womens career advancement, it was only the inevitable tension between work and family Yet what I saw happening at my workplace was something else entirelysomething that had to do with power, bias, confidence, and risk taking.As I talked with friends about what was occurring at my organization, I heard similar stories, again and again, about theirs stories about charismatic male leaders at the helm, men who made bold but often rash decisions Their organizations too were full of talented, hardworking women in lieutenant and other senior roles Those women worked longer hours, were attuned to the details, and had experience and knowledge Yet they were not leading at the highest levels, both because they were not being put in positions of leadership and because they werent sharing audacious ideas or initiating big plans Their employers were utilizing their strong work ethic but not their brilliancetheir unique ideas, insights, and talents.While I loved many aspects of my work in philanthropymy colleagues, applying my MBA education to a social mission, and working with inspiring philanthropistsafter a few years, I started to have the sense that it was not what I wanted to do long term I faced the truth that many of the real dreams I had for my careerto do something highly creative, entrepreneurial, and in the personal growth fieldhad gotten buried during my time in college and graduate school.Id been exposed to the field of coaching while at Stanford Business School and was intrigued Coaching was a way to work with peoples inner lives but with a focus on action and impact That was just what I was looking for I got trained as a coach and I also started blogging about personal growth For a couple of years, my life looked like this wake up at five write a blog post jump on the train go to work at the foundation all day and then, around six, head over to the office that I rented for a handful of hours each week to meet with my coaching clients.It was around this time that I started to notice again and again brilliant women around me playing small I first saw it in my clients, women like Nisha, Elizabeth, and Cynthia I also saw it in my friends One day, I was on a Saturday morning walk with three of my girlfriends I listened as Jessa talked about what she thought needed to be done to fix the dysfunctional school board in her kids district I listened as Britt talked about some questionable practices happening in her company I listened as Abby told the most remarkable story about a game shed created for her nieces and nephews to help them learn about their family history I listened as the whole group shared their sorrows and hopes about the news headlines of the week I listened to them talk, in awe of their intelligence, their ideas, and their charactertheir honest concern for others and their commitment to doing the right thing I kept thinking, these are the kind of people I wish were in charge hardworking, wise, ethical women and men who care a great deal about people.I said something along those linesthat I wished Jessa would join her school board, that Britt would get into a leadership role at her company, that Abby would write a book about parenting They chuckled in response to my suggestions They thought of themselves as amateurs pontificating, not as people whose ideas were ready for a larger stage.Then the thought struck me On that particular Saturday morning, around the country, there were thousands of groups like ourswomen walking and talking about what was wrong with the status quo, what was needed, women sharing alternative visions of how things could be Those ideas and critiques were being left on the sidewalks and trails, heard only in intimate conversations among friends Leaps of imagination, important ideas and questions, and visions for change were not making it to the bigger stages where they could be heard and where they were desperately needed.Of course, I was so attuned to this phenomenon of women playing small because I was struggling with it myself All the support, education, and success Id had somehow had not added up to confidence It hadnt left me eager to pursue my dreams Instead I was petrified of failure, embarrassment, not being good enough As a result, I was not doing the work I longed to do Id grown up seeing again and again how womens voices were missing from the world, and now I was seeing the inner side of that dynamicwhat caused women, including myself, to hold back our ideas and our voices.A couple of years into juggling part time coaching with full time employment, I decided to leave the foundation My blog, which had begun with thirty eight friends and family subscribers, had grown to a readership of a few thousand women I started to think about bringing the coaching work I did to the larger audience of these readers, and I wanted to know what kinds of workshops or courses would be most useful to them So in a survey, I asked them, Whats the biggest challenge in your life I offered a big multiple choice list of answers, a list of the challenges we typically talk about as looming large in contemporary womens lives work life balance, stress, not enough time, financial problems, health challenges, relationship issues But then, because of what Id seen in my clients, my friends, and myself, I added one challenge to the list Im playing small.When the survey responses came back, Im playing small was what the largest number of women deemed their most significant problemyes, than work life balance, stress, or relationship issues There was indeed a larger phenomenon reflective of what I was observing Bright, full of potential women were playing small, and they were aware of this and they didnt like it In fact, many saw playing small as the most pressing challenge in their lives.In some sense, what Im now doing is the very same thing I did that day in high school when I decided to try to change the English curriculum Im working to bring forward womens voices where they are absent, because I believe those voices will help us create a better world.On Doing Inner WorkA year ago, I was appearing as a guest on a live morning news show Fewer than ten minutes before my airtime, the producer of my segment walked in Heres the introduction the anchors will be using for you, she said She showed me a bright purple piece of paper with a script that said, Recent studies show that even though women account for 51 percent of middle managers in the US, they are only 4 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs Our next guest says theres no one to blame but ourselves She says women tend to do things that undermine us and our work Welcome, Tara Sophia Mohr Uh oh.In any moment of the day, I would not have looked forward to standing up to the producer, and I especially wasnt in the mood for it in my early morning, pre TV nervous and exhausted state But I heard myself think, Im not going down like that.I figured this was a news show, so Id try an accuracy angle Oh, youll want to change that because its inaccurate, I said casually Id never say that women have no one to blame but themselves for those statistics, because many external factorslike discriminationlead to those numbers.Oh, okay , she said reluctantly I can ask the executive producer about changing it, but its doubtfulI could tell that if I wanted this to get changed in the next ten minutes, I needed to supply an easy solution How about if we change it to Our next guest, Tara Sophia Mohr, says women can do something to change those numbers I asked her.Hmmm, Ill check, she said.They changed the introduction.The script the producer originally showed me perfectly reflected our collective confusion about the question of external versus internal barriers to womens career advancement Our usual cultural conversation divides the challenges into two categories unfair external barriers to womens advancement that women are victims of discrimination, bias, poor work family policies, pay disparities and internal, psychological things that women do to themselves and for which women are therefore to blame A rather ridiculous debate follows Are the internal or external barriers important Is this all womens responsibility or is it not their fault The producers assumption was that if we were talking about what women do to undermine themselves, its womens fault It was their choice.I see it differently Centuries of womens exclusion from political, public, and professional life have had many effects Some of those effects were external legislation, formal policies, pay disparities, lack of legal protections, and the denial of womens basic rights But inequality of men and women has also left internal effects in us Over generations, it shaped how we think of ourselves and what we see as possible for our lives and work It shaped our fearsfears of speaking up, of rocking the boat, of displeasing others It caused women to develop a number of behaviors that enabled them to survive in environments where they had no legal, financial, or political powerbehaviors like conflict avoidance, self censoring, people pleasing, tentative speech and action.While weve done a great deal of work collectively, especially over the past forty years, to remove the external barriers to womens empowerment, we have not taken the same close look at the internal legacy of inequality and how to change it We have a lot of inner unlearning and relearning to do.The tools youll acquire in this book are for playing bigger in the ways you most want to but at a deeper level, they are tools for unlearning the lessons that centuries of womens marginalization have left in each of us.About the BookPeople often ask me, Where does the Playing Big material you teach come from Its a hybrid Some comes from my business school training Some comes from twenty years of learning about psychology and personal growth Some comes from the wisdom of the spiritual texts I grew up reading Some comes from the lessons Ive learned on my personal journey And of course, much comes from what I learned working with women to help them play bigger.What often felt like a disjointed split in my childhood between heart and mind, intuition and education, right brain and left brain, has become a unique blend that I bring to my work Theres the MBA in me and the spiritual seeker The part of me that loves intellectual rigor and the part that loves poetry So in these pages, youll learn tools as tactical as research based communication techniques and as soulful as a two thousand year old spiritual teaching about fear I teach both because both can help you play bigger.Well begin by talking about what most fundamentally gets in the way of women playing big Its the voice of self doubt, of not methe voice inside that is sure you arent the one to lead, to write the book, to take on that bigger role, to speak up in the meeting Its the voice that tells you that you arent qualified enough, smart enough, experienced enough, good at x enough to ever play big I know you are familiar with this voice, and you probably have some sense of how self doubt has held you back in your work or in your personal life In chapter 1, youll learn what to do when you feel insecure or self critical, so that all those thoughts no longer get in your way I love teaching women this because its actually relatively easy to change how we relate to self doubtonce you have the right understanding of your inner critic and the appropriate tools to use the moment it acts up.Once youre not listening so much to your inner critic, you have the opportunity to listen to a very different voice within After working with thousands of women to help them play bigger, I know this Every woman has at her core unfailing, perfect wisdom When you have a dilemma, the wise part of you knows what next step is right When you are feeling confused, the wise part of you has clarity When a problem seems overwhelming and complicated, the wise part of you has a simple, elegant answer I call this core your inner mentor, because its like having an advisor and supporter inside your own mindand therefore available to you around the clock In chapter 2, youll learn how you can access and start taking direction from this part of yourself.Learning how to listen to your inner mentor instead of your inner critic is the first major movement toward playing bigger Playing big doesnt come from working , pushing harder, or finding confidence It comes from listening to the most powerful and secure part of you, not the voice of self doubt.Then we tackle the other obstacles that most commonly hold women back from playing bigger First fear Whether its fear of failure, of standing out from the crowd, of conflict, or of greater visibility, fears hold back most women from sharing their voices and ideas And yet, not all fear is problematic In chapter 3, well cover two types of fear One kind of fear keeps us playing small one kind is an essential ingredient for playing big The task before us is to shift out of that limiting type of fear and welcome the positive kind Youll learn how to distinguish between the two and what to do when each one arises.Next we turn to unhooking from praise and criticism Attachment to praise and avoidance of criticism keeps us from doing innovative, controversial work and simplyfrom following the paths we feel called toward, whether or not those around us understand or approve And powerful women are often met with hostile criticism, so we need to learn how to receive it and not be paralyzed by it We also need to learn to interpret feedback so that it propels us forward rather than hurting or immobilizing us Then we look at what weve all learned in school and how it can stand in the way of our playing big I started to notice a surprising phenomenon in my work with women I expected that women who excelled in school would also excel in their careers After all, wasnt schoolparticularly college and graduate schoolpreparation for the work world Yet again and again I saw that women who were stars in school ran into major, self imposed walls in their careers As I dug deeper, I understood that they were struggling because school cultivates and rewards a particular way of working that not only doesnt help us play bigger but often gets in the way of our playing bigger Chapter 5 is about how to leave behind the good student habits we are conditioned in for our many years in school and that we need to unlearn in our adult lives.Advance praise for Playing Big At last At last this very important book has been written, encouraging women to take up all the creative space they deserve in the world I hope it will empower legions of women to step into their greatness I couldn t be happier about this publication Elizabeth Gilbert Tara and I share the same philosophy we hopeinspirational ideas will ignite you to go out and make an impact in your own life.Whether shes writing
