The Tall Wall

Often the biggest barriers to our success are those we build within ourselves. The Tall Wall is a metaphor for the perceived barrier that limits so many people from demonstrating their true value within their organisations.

The Tall Wall is passionate about the results coaching can achieve for individuals especially when delivered in the context of broader culture change. Coaching is one of the most effective and enduring ways to activate the value contribution of your people; as such, we work to liberate the potential, human and economic, latent within your workforce.

Our original focus was on coaching women because this was, and often still is, the group where the potential positive difference can be greatest. However, for teams and businesses to really thrive, the playing field needs to be both clear and level. This means we increasingly partner with organisations to deliver our coaching in the context of wider culture change.

Founded by executive coach, Helen Cowan, The Tall Wall brings together outstanding coaches located across three continents.

Latest Research

Read The Tall Wall’s latest research report investigating ‘Why women are not progressing in your organisation…and what you can do about it’. In this report they share are five of the common themes that are holding women (and often men) back from thriving. These themes have emerged from their consulting work with FTSE 100 companies, management consultancies and a wide range of accounting, legal and private equity firms. Having worked with these organisations in depth to unpick the lived experience of professional women and men on the ground, day to day and to feed this back to senior management along with their recommendations; they wanted to step back and share some common themes and what more organisations can do to support women to thrive.
