The family should be a haven for parents and children alike. Unfortunately home is often the rocky shore where relationships run aground. Tall Trees maintains that families can foster closeness and can learn to nurture one another. We make this easier by revealing every family member’s unique needs.
Conflict stems from clashing views, ways of doing, communication styles and expectations, to name but a few! By comparing our Tall Trees Profile reports we often discover that the conflict is caused by very real differences in style, not by cruel intentions. We are more prone to forgive, find solutions and accept one another when we embrace the truth: We WILL differ because we ARE different!
Insight gleaned from a Tall Trees Profile helps engaged and married couples to develop a stronger and lasting bond. Each partner can use the other’s report as a “love manual” as it supplies practical ways of caring for one another. Judgment and misunderstanding turn into respect and appreciation. Partners become one another’s biggest supporters on the road to personal and interpersonal growth.
Far from boxing people in or labelling them in a limiting or judgmental fashion, Tall Trees gives 52 possible outcomes! It describes, explores and celebrates individuality.
The six detailed areas of personal dynamics in each person’s profile (Forces within, Fields of Greatness, Fertilizer, Frostbite, Forest Fires and Fast Forward) can be explored during counselling or our marriage seminar in order to refine how we divide responsibilities, solve conflict, eliminate frustrations, make our house a home and grow together.
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 top and mid-level managers but for every member of the team!
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 children frustration 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.
A teenager’s growth starts with self-knowledge. The Tall Trees Leadership Profile for Teenagers supplies these essential footholds of a personal identity, which, in turn, protects the teenager from the pressure to conform. The profile also equips the adults in the teenager’s life with a description of the teen’s work, social and life-view profile. The TTLP for Teenagers makes even the most complex teenager surprisingly easy to understand!
Tall Trees Profiles strives to be the answer to modern-day training challenges by being committed to affordability, multicultural relevance, academic accuracy, excellence in presentation and material, adaptability to all sizes of enterprise in both the private and public sector and implementable practicality.
The TTLP (Tall Trees Leadership Profile) for the corporate sector helps every company determine exactly what contributes to their success and why certain goals elude them.
Tall Trees empowers the individual with valuable self-insight and the human resource manager with answers to questions like these:
Why does the employee underperform on a simple task?
Why does only one employee respond negatively to all changes?
How can the power struggle between two managers be resolved?
How can we improve morale and loyalty?
How can we prevent burn-out?
Tall Trees Training offers an intensive three-day training programme several times per year. The training is available bilingually and presented in various cities around the country as well as overseas.
Candidates write an accreditation exam and are coached towards becoming effective practitioners of Tall Trees Profiles to ensure they are fully prepared to transfer the knowledge with enthusiasm and insight.
Tall Trees Facilitators do not buy into a franchise, nor do they have minimum targets or membership fees – everyone decides on their level of involvement and activity and has the choice
to apply the material in the corporate context, in schools or in personal counselling.
Facilitators become part of the Tall Trees team and are held responsible for high quality presentations and professional implementation of the standardized material. They also have exclusive access to the latest research and all Tall Trees content and workshop material. The Facilitators are given marketing material and their own profile on the Tall Trees website. They receive drastic discounts on Tall Trees Profile test codes, enabling them to earn extra income. They price their presentations according to their own professional code and the market they operate in.
Psychologists, therapists and counsellors will discover unique aids in the Tall Trees Profiles for every aspect of personal and relationship growth.

Tall Trees offers the individual a quick, honest and practical but empathetic look in the mirror and clues to the following relationship challenges, to name a few:
What aspects of our communication style contribute to our conflict with one another?
Can our life view be reconciled with our present reality or should we make a mind shift?
How can we replenish that part of ourselves that feels drained?
What are our individual contributions to the relationship and how can we give one another space and appreciation
How can we relieve one another’s tension and discomfort?
