  1. Develop a practical approach based on field data
  2. Be clear in your relationship
  3. Open yourself up to the situation and towards others
  4. Determine ambitious, concrete and measurable objectives

The five checkpoints before deciding
  1. Take part in a conference/presentation to “form an opinion”
  2. Check out the usefulness of some form of coaching/masterclass
  3. Determine an ambitious; albeit realistic, objective
  4. Consulting, coaching, team working : choose the best way to meet your objective successfully
  5. Organise a follow-through.
The five warning signs of your need for outside help
  1. Constant repetition of negative emotions and/or feelings
