Playing Big Peer Mentor Circles

Gather your women’s leadership network, team or department to read Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead, and meet regularly in small circles to discuss and mentor each other. For big results, pair this with a kick-off gathering, a capstone celebration and an executive sponsor. We’ll help you design a program, including: facilitator’s guides, a welcome video, customizable communications, and an opportunity to invite Tara to your organization for an online Q&A.


Enroll a cohort from your company in the Playing Big leadership program, or bring Tara or her team to your organization. Women who attend the Playing Big leadership programs report that they have more confidence, mentor and manage more effectively, share their unique ideas more, and are playing bigger in their careers.

Our Partner Organizations Say…

“While I trusted that Tara would be insightful and bring value as a presenter, I had no idea how powerful the impact would be to each and every life in the room. As a speaker, Tara is powerful, graceful and engaging. She not only engages the room, but she creates the magic that allows the guests to really connect at a deeper level with themselves. I’m so happy I invited her.”

Regina PerataDirector at Nike

“We were thrilled to host Tara Mohr’s Playing Big peer mentorship program. As an executive sponsor and one of 170 participants at Starbucks, it had a profound effect on me, my family and my awareness of the inner obstacles we all must confront and harness to become better leaders and to live happy and rewarding lives. We can all be supermen and superwomen. The response was so great that we’re looking forward to continuing the dialogue and engaging more partners (employees) in upcoming sessions.”

Hans MelotteExecutive vice president, global supply chain, Starbucks Coffee Company and executive sponsor of the Starbucks Women’s Development Network

“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.”

Alexis Kanda-OlmsteadDirector, Talent Management, Training & Support Colorado State University

“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.”
