We’ve Got Your Back
Your Personal Vision: A Journey of Self-Discovery.
Most people will work over 90,000 hours in their lifetime. Most people feel unfulfilled by their jobs, or even hate them.
Maybe you know what it’s like—the soul-crushing drain of waiting out the clock. The constant pressure of performing.
What if Things Could Be Different?
Imagine a world where everyone worked with a sense of joy and purpose.
Where companies operated at the highest possible level because every team member was fully engaged and fully alive. Imagine a world where students and adults confidently navigated their careers based on a deep understanding of themselves and their goals, and carried that sense of purpose and direction throughout their careers and on through retirement.
At the Highlands Company, we are passionate about seeing personal career visions come to fruition for adults, students, career counselors, and organizations.
Since 1992, the Highlands Whole Person 4-Step Method has helped tens of thousands of individuals to transform their lives, both at work and at home. We can help you too.

Testimonials about the Highlands Ability Battery.
I would rate the effectiveness of the Highlands Ability Battery on a scale of 1 to 10, as a 10. Very, very effective.
It’s measurable, and to me the objectivity of it makes the HAB powerful. Being able to move us from where we are to where we want to be is extraordinary.
The HAB helped me see people in a different light. It is much easier for me to see the potential in others now.
The HAB gave me a new language that I needed for my college applications, and it allowed me to focus on my strengths when making decisions about college.
The HAB has done a lot to develop our family dynamic. Because of it, we all have a set of tools to help us communicate and understand each other.
