Standing Tall: On Confidence, Teamwork and Leadership




Tom Harley, twice a Geelong premiership captain, discovered what qualities he values most and how to bring out the best in others.

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.'
Paul Sheahan, former headmaster, Melbourne Grammar
