We offer courses, workshops and consulting to both Individuals and Groups.

The courses and workshops are based on the Highland Battery, a series of 19 exercises that measure and define your natural abilities. Learn More About The Highlands Battery

This is not like any other test you’ve ever taken. In each exercise, you use your keyboard to solve a puzzle that tells us something about you.

There are no grades and no good or bad results. Each exercise measures a particular aptitude – how well you can distinguish one musical note from another, for example. Or whether you prefer concrete tasks to abstract problems. You will find most of the exercises to be challenging and interesting. And you’ll be amazed how much they reveal about you.

After you complete the Battery, you will receive a 33- page report describing your results. This report will help you find the answers to many vital questions:

How do I learn best? What is the best study environment for me? How do I communicate best with my fellow students? How do I solve problems and make decisions most easily? How shall I plan my classroom, study and homework schedules?

After you have received your report, you go over the results in detail with Dr. Tom Tavantzis. In a 2-hour feedback session, you and Dr. Tom will discuss your abilities as they relate to your school career and the courses for which your profile ideally suits you. This process is the foundation for developing a long-term career strategy. Everyone is born with natural abilities. Natural abilities are not influenced by education or experience, they are just there to be harnessed and developed. By the age of fourteen your natural abilities have matured enough to be defined and measured.

No matter who you are or what stage of your education you are in, you can count on your ability profile to be a practical, objective way to provide you with direction and focus. You will gain the knowledge that allows you to make practical decisions about educational choices and career options.
