'For anyone who feels they’re being held back in their career, this is the book for you.' Marie Claire WHEN WOMEN PLAY BIG, WE MAKE THINGS HAPPEN Five years ago, Tara Mohr began to see a pattern in her work as an expert in leadership: women with tremendous talent, ideas and aspiration were not recognising their own brilliance. They felt that they were ‘playing small’ in their lives and careers and wanted to ‘play bigger’, but didn’t know how. And so Tara devised a step-by-step programme for playing big from the inside out: this book is the result.

Harness the seven key elements of successful organisational change Leading for Organisational Change is an intelligent and practical guide to the human side of merger integration and other organisational change. Building a clear sense of common purpose and then reinforcing it through storytelling can underpin the success of an integration or significant change programme. Pulling together the best thinking from neuroscience, psychology and business, and her rich personal experience in twenty years of leading change projects in professional services organisations and other people-centred businesses, author Jennifer Emery presents a framework for change rooted in seven key themes that help organisations establish their BECAUSE: belonging, evolution, confidence, agility, understanding, simplicity and energy.

'Empowers, enlightens and entertains with every sentence.' Elizabeth Day We all have difficult moments at work, times when we feel awkward, when our daily micro interactions make us uncomfortable, perhaps when we have to say no or assert ourselves in a way that makes us feel less like ourselves, less 'sisterly'. Part self-help guide, part master class in survival skills for life and work, Lift as You Climb examines what sisterhood looks like these days, asks what you can do to make things better for other women and considers how to do that without disadvantaging yourself. It's the ultimate confidence bible for women who want to plan a career in a fast moving world, but without leaving anyone else behind. And it addresses one of the biggest issues women face in the workplace - how to be ambitious without losing your sense of self. It must be possible, right? Full of tips, takeaways and invaluable insights, this is everything you need to know about making life better for yourself - without making it worse for others. _______________ Praise for How to Own the Room: 'I recommend Viv Groskop's How to Own the Room to anyone wanting more self confidence. Full of helpful concepts you can get your head round and embody. I'm finding it very useful.' - Philippa Perry 'Plenty of tips and tricks... The most valuable lesson is that, in Groskop's words, "You don't have to be a great speaker to give an amazing speech."' - Style 'The ultimate guide to public speaking. Inspirational.' - Mary Portas 'Demystifies the art of talking to people and winning them round to your cause.' - The Times 'This book is going to help so many people. It's brilliant.' - Emma Gannon 'An excellent, truly useful guide to getting more women front and centre, encouraging us to take part, noisily, in public life. (The podcast is also fabulous.)' - Daisy Buchanan

'Inspirational.' - Mary Portas 'Indispensable ... written with style and wit.' - Mishal Husain 'Demystifies the art of talking to people and winning them round to your cause.' - The Times Most books about public speaking don’t tell you what to do when you open your mouth and nothing comes out. And they don’t tell you how to get over the anxiety about performance that most people naturally have. They don’t tell you what to do in the moments when you are made, as a woman, to feel small. They don’t tell you how to own the room. This book does. From the way Michelle Obama projects ‘happy high status’, and the power of J.K.Rowling’s understated speaking style, to Virginia Woolf’s leisurely pacing and Oprah Winfrey’s mastery of inner conviction, what is it that our heroines do to make us sit up and listen - really listen - to their every word? And how can you achieve that impact in your own life? Here’s how.
