Tall Trees' leadership philosophy in a nutshell: All people can be leaders provided they make their unique contribution at the right time and in the right place, and allow others to do the same. Leadership is the art of knowing when to bow, when to stand tall and when to dance with others. It is a fact that leaders do not always lead from the front. In the workplace, therefore, leadership training is not meant only for the top and mid-level managers but for every member of the team. In schools, leadership training is very effective for all learners in order to acquire "soft skills" to promote cooperation and the knowledge of their unique leadership situations where they should step up. Everyone has a sphere of influence.
There is an idiom about the highest trees catching the most wind. That is true! Leadership always entails challenges and resistance. When the tree is, however, planted in exactly the right spot, the wind actually makes it stronger.
In any company the nurturing and development of a person who has been planted wrongly will demand long programmes at very high cost. In schools this approach causes learner frustration, lack of performance and damage to their self-image. In families this means role conflict and the loss of mutual respect.
Our task is the discovery of every person's unique, inborn leadership style. This highlights specific tasks and situations that suit the leader to a T (whether child, partner, employee or director). The minimum training and motivation is then needed because the leader is in exactly the spot where they belong.
