Why Us

Welcome to Tall Poppies Leadership –
A Global Leadership Development company that empowers leaders to
Stand Tall and Ignite their Confidence.

The Story of us

Tall Poppies Leadership was created to ignite confidence in leaders around the world!

Whilst working in New York, our CEO observed that even the most Senior leaders experience self-doubt, a major obstacle to their success. At the core of enhancing their performance and results – was confidence, not skills. Yet most leadership development companies provide transactional skill-building. And most leaders forget what they learn.  

She dreamed of inspiring people to harness their confidence first – because this has the greatest impact on success and happiness. Having grown up in Australia, where Tall Poppy Syndrome encourages leaders to quieten their achievements, she set out to flip the script. Changing the story to be one of empowerment and bringing up those around us. Leaders who Stand Tall.

Founded in 2018, with a leadership development methodology that provides impactful, fun, and results-orientated experiences. All the solutions sustainably transform leadership performance.

Tall Poppies Leadership is now Headquartered in Kim’s hometown, Perth, Australia, with an international team that serves clients globally. And We Love it!

We are on a mission to create a global community of Tall Poppies! Join us.

Know.‎ ‎

Trust. ‎

Be. ‎


One constant theme, through our decades of experience, has enabled the best leaders to inspire themselves, their teams, and their organisations – the Confidence they have in themselves. This is gained through investing in our simple yet effective process of Knowing. Trusting. Being. Yourself. A process that develops mindsets for sustainable growth and behavioural change.


Enchance Self-Awareness

How can you best lead people, organisations, and your life, without accurate data about yourself and your impact?

You Stand Tall when you have clarity on your obstacles, energisers, superpowers, and you celebrate yourself.


Minimise Self-doubt

How many times do you question a decision? How many thoughts do you have per day? How many of these are negative?

Decisions encompass our everyday life. When we make them with conviction – by navigating our inner voice – we save time, anxiety and maximise our results.


Embrace Uniqueness

How can you relish in being you – when our world encourages conformity? How can we ask others to follow our leadership if we aren’t being ourselves?

Humans naturally seek approval and belonging – yet we feel greatest resonance when we express our uniqueness. Unlock this and your confident leadership expands.
