Tom Harley considers himself a lucky man, having captained the Geelong Football Club to two premierships in three years. Never the club's top player, he set personal goals, working hard and pushing himself to achieve them. On his way to becoming the greatest leader he could be, Tom discovered what qualities he values most, and how to bring out the best in others.

Respect, courage, risk, pride, gaining confidence, finding your passion, leading under pressure and coping with failure # using his own experiences, Tom shares his thoughts on what makes both great leaders and followers. He shows what it takes to stand tall, on and off the field.

'How fortunate are we to have a diary, a compendium, a bible, if you like, of the things that matter to Tom and, in the end, matter to us all.'

    Comments about Standing Tall:

    As an educator I found Tom Harley's story inspiring, humble and full of wisdom. If only all our sports star were as humble and insightful as Tom. Tom's story is a genuine reference for teenagers. There are valuable lessons on sportsmanship, life and living all couched in the confidence of a genuine leader of people.
    Dissecting the book chapter by chapter would be a valuable leadership development exercise schools, business and sports teams.
