Keep It Moving: How to Reinforce and Extend Learning

The public library in Waupaca, Wisconsin is going to have a Civil Discussion Series. The purpose is to ‘strengthen community through relationship and understanding.’ It will begin by teaching civil communication techniques. This will prepare the participants to use civil discourse as they discuss the “Hard Topics” that have polarized our country, such as immigration.

This program got me thinking about all of the different types of personality profiles that help people learn how to better communicate with others and to value their differences. DiSC, Meyers-Briggs, Kiersey Temperament Sorter, INSIGHT inventory, Neuro-linguistic Programming, True Colors, The Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument, and The Big Five are just a few of these personality tests.

Each test measures personality and behavioral styles, including communication preferences. People who take these tests leave with a better understanding of themselves and how they relate to others. They gain insight into their strengths and challenges, with recommendations regarding how to strengthen their interpersonal effectiveness.

Individuals or entire teams leave with their personality profiles in hand, ready to recognize, value and communicate more effectively with others who have different personalities and needs. All of this is to the good. But the glass is only half full. The obvious question is, “Now what do they do with this awareness?”

Of course they are expected to apply what they’ve learned in their daily work and social lives. However, wouldn’t it be great if that learning could be reinforced in a more structured fashion- in a peer learning group where different perspectives are valued and actively sought out? This would keep the learning moving through constructive and collaborative conversations over a topic of mutual interest.

Peer learning groups are also intended to ‘strengthen community through relationship and understanding.’ However, instead of the community at large, the focus is on the members’ workplace. The hard topics under discussion are the challenges and difficulties that managers face in the course of their daily work lives. The intent of the peer learning groups is to build on the managers’ strengths while giving them the opportunity to address their challenges in a practical and timely manner.

The dialogue within the peer learning group will let the participants flex their newly acquired knowledge of their communication styles. They can practice with impunity and without any repercussions because they are among their peers.

A peer learning group is a wonderful testing ground for new behaviors. In truth, the ultimate goal of a peer learning group is for the participants to practice and adopt new, more effective behaviors and responses. It is a good way to keep the civil discourse moving toward a specific goal rather than leaving it to chance.

Exam Nerves Can Affect Anyone

Exams are conducted for various reasons; every person tests their exam nerves right from early childhood where he/she is required to perform. The reason that a person faces exam nerves is due to the pressure that is created by parents or teachers, and society where he or she is compared to a different child that might have come from a completely different background. These are the early days when the exam nerves put their foothold in a person’s life. However these nerves gain a stronghold and this carries all the way from high school to any competitive level where he/she has to undergo examination.

Exams are also conducted for job seekers who are required to perform well in the examination in order to be adjudged as the deserving candidate. For this one has to give his best, and how is it possible for a person to perform exceptionally well if he/she has exam nerves. So in order to make this possible you have to drive away those nerves from your life.

Exam nerves will mess up with a person’s performance. When a person has exam nerves he is not able to give his/her best as in this situation even if he/she had prepared well, they won’t be able to give their productive best. If a person appearing for an examination has exam nerves, they are affected with stress and fear and might not be able to perform well. If the case with you is similar then you require finding out the root cause of your exam nerves.

Stress can affect a person; a person will not be able to give his best and this will add to anxiety. All this will further add to your problem. So it is very necessary for you to overcome your nerves. Stress is related to your mind and you require help that is mind related. Hypnosis deals with a person’s mind taking it to another dimension and realizes the root cause for your exam nerves. Once done with this your subconscious mind is treated with all the necessary (positive) thoughts. All this is made possible with the all-important help of hypnosis where your mind is put in a relaxation mode allowing it to relax and handle the pressure situations with ease.

This treatment is available in the form of mp3. You can download its contents from the Internet. This is where you will be taught the system of self-hypnotizing. You can practice this at your home in a quiet atmosphere. Once you have used it you will see that the next time you enter the examination hall you are full of confidence and those nerves of yours are no longer acting as a barrier for you to perform well. None of us wants to live our life with the fear of those nerves so go ahead and get one mp3 content for yourself and see the different (positive) approach that you have while appearing for an exam. Hypnosis enables you to overcome your fear and prepare well and most of all perform brilliantly.

Bullying at School – Empower Yourself to Protect Your Child Against School Bullying

Certainly as parents we all realize bullying at school is on the rise. School bullying statistics for some countries of the world are now citing figures as high as 25%, or one in four children attending school are either bully victims, are engaged in bullying themselves, or are both! The chances are very high, and increasing all the time, that you may be facing an incident of bullying at some point during your child’s time spent in the public or private education system.

As a parent do you even know what signs or symptoms to look for when dealing with bullying at school or how to support a victim of school bullying?

7 Key Indicators Of Bullying At School

1. Child is afraid to go to school.

2. Child often feels ill on school mornings.

3. Child is skipping school or classes.

4. Grades in school suddenly dropping.

5. Trouble sleeping or nightmares.

6. Becoming a “loner” and avoiding social activities.

7. Talking openly about suicide or attempting it.

Obviously there are more than just 7 indicators of this type of bullying and common sense tells us these are just guidelines. As caring parents, who know our children, we always must be on the alert for unnatural behaviors in our children that would give us clues that something is seriously wrong.

Positive Support For Victims Of School Bullying

Often when faced with evidence of this inappropriate behavior, as parents we allow our emotions rather than our brains to control how we react. Worst thing we can do! Often this will make things even more stressful for the child. As difficult as it may be at the time (and yes, I have been there too, as both a parent and an educator), you must put the needs of the victim first!

1. Comfort the child. Let them know that you are there for them, you care for them, and you will keep them safe.

2. Address any safety concerns. Take any necessary steps to ensure your child is kept safe, including contacting the school and enlisting help from teachers and support staff.

3. Discuss effective bullying responses with your child to help them deal with face to face situations with the bully. These responses may differ depending on whether you are dealing with bullying at the middle school or bullying in high school.

Negative Support For Victims Of School Bullying

Whether your child is a victim of bullying at the middle school or bullying in high school, the following “pitfalls” or negative support must be avoided.

1. Never try and justify the bully’s behavior! Let you child know that any bullying is wrong and no one deserves to be bullied!

2. Very important that you resist the urge to try and solve the problem for your child, unless they are in serious physical danger, as this tells the bully that your child is indeed “helpless”.

3. Telling the child to simply avoid the bully will not solve the problem and generally only works for a short time.

4. Never, never tell your child to fight back! Most bullies are bigger and stronger, and are looking for an excuse to physically punish their victim and impress their peer group.

5. Don’t confront the bully or the bully’s parents alone. Their reactions may be hostile rather than sympathetic, which could make things even worse for both you and your child. If a meeting is necessary, enlist the help of a third party such as the school administration or teacher to mediate the meeting and keep things under control.

Parents learning how to recognize the signs of bullying at school, and supporting a child victimized by school bullying, are important first steps, but not the end of the problem. Teaching the targeted child effective ways to empower themselves to deal with bullying at the middle school, or bullying in high school, is giving them a vital personal skill set necessary to cope with this worsening social problem in our school system.

Advantages of Attending a Career Training School?

A four year college is not always the best education after leaving school. Many graduates from universities have degrees from popular universities. However, most of them are unsure on how to look for a job once their education is over. Some graduates who manage to get employed find it difficult to excel in that field because of the lack of hands-on experience. Some graduates even find themselves in a profession that is not suited for them. Therefore, the best choice for many people who are unsure about their career paths is to take part in career job training. Career job training is usually carried out by a career training school. These schools offer degrees that are highly specific.

There are many advantages of attending a career training school. Not only will you be able to get career job training, you will graduate faster as well. This is because career training schools have no general education program. Therefore, you will not be doing any subjects that are unrelated to your career path. In addition to this, when you attend a career training school, you will get hands on experience while you study. So, you will be prepared and fully aware of what to expect once you graduate.

Career training schools also give you career job training by providing you with information about starting salaries you can expect once you graduate and possible locations that have demand for your line of work. These institutions also have career job training workshops and seminars that give students a clearer picture of how to tackle job situations once they have graduated. Some institutions even give you advice on how to prepare a resume according to your line of work. This gives students who attend career training schools an advantage as they can take full advantage of the benefits these institutions provide them with.

If you are unsure about what course to take, career job training schools offer advice and aptitude tests that you can take in order to get a general idea of what careers will suit you best. These schools have a variety of courses and career paths to choose from. So you will never be short on choice or miss out on your ideal career. No matter what course you pick you are always guaranteed hands on experience, which is the best form of career job training you can receive. Therefore, if you are not sure what career path to choose, attend a career job training school!

Online Vs Offline Pharmacy Technician Training

Training to become a pharmacy technician is a very smart investment of your time and for your future. You are venturing into the health care field which can allow you to have a financially and emotionally rewarding career. Although there are some major benefits to this career choice, getting the training is something that will take hard work and dedication. I have been working in a pharmacy for over 15 years, and I still remember the vigorous pharmacy technician training that I had to go through to achieve that technical diploma. Although I went to a brick and mortar institution, there are many online opportunities that have been made available over the past 5-10 years. Here are some deciding factors if you are undecided as to which route is best for you to take.

Online Pharmacy Technician Training Schools

Like I said before, I received a technical diploma from an actual brick and mortar school, but going the online route can be beneficial in certain ways. For starters, most online schools have a rolling admissions policy. This means that the student can start at various times of the year. The student is not limited to the traditional September/January semester start times.

We all have busy schedules and sometimes things arouse unexpectedly. When this occurs, you may miss that dreaded semester registration deadline. With a rolling admission policy, if you miss the registration date no problem, you can sign up for another session that starts a few weeks later. This will ease the tension and allow you to sign up when you are ready.

Most online pharmacy technician schools are cheaper financially. Many times you are paying for the actual manuals required for the training and for any type of special software. Actually this can go both ways. You could be paying less for your training or you could be paying more. It really all depends on the credibility of the online/offline school. At the moment, that’s all the benefits I can think of when it comes to attending an online pharmacy technician training program. Now let us take a look at the benefits of attending an offline pharmacy training program.

Offline Pharmacy Technician Training Schools

Okay here I will list the many benefits that are granted when attending an offline training facility:

  • You Get hands on Training
  • The instructor is live and in person
  • Cost of attending
  • Job placement services
  • Nationally accredited and recognized
  • Networking

Let’s start out with the hands on training. Pharmacy is a career that involves the use of many types of machines and requires constant learning and implementing of new knowledge. There are devices, techniques, and procedures that can only be taught properly with the help of continuous hands on training. If you decide to work in a hospital setting, you may be called on to prepare intravenous solutions. This procedure is best taught with hands on training. Speaking from experience, it is difficult to learn the proper way to handle a syringe by reading some type of manual or watching a training video. With the growing number of hospitals adopting the 797 compounding procedures, preparing solutions using aseptic technique is something else that a technician cannot learn from an online course. Although it may be more convenient to attend one of the many online programs, getting hands on training will be more beneficial to your career.

The presence of the instructor does wonders. Have you ever had a question about something? Who can you ask? The answer is not located in your training manual. What are your options? This is one of the major benefits of attending an offline pharmacy technician training program. The presence of the instructor to help out when needed. You have a trained professional ready and willing to answer any and every question that you may have.

Online programs do offer assistance, but for the most part the assistance is limited to a certain degree. For example, if you are holding the syringe wrong, you have the instructor to correct you on the spot. What about testing issues? After taking an exam or quiz, you may meet with the instructor personally to go over test scores or any material that you didn’t have a firm understanding.

Another major roadblock that may arise is the cost of attending the program. For the most part, many online programs require special software. With this special software comes a higher price for tuition. When attending an offline program, you have the regular cost of admission and the cost of your textbooks. Usually those are your only fees. If you are not getting any type of financial assistance, the total cost of the program can be the deciding factor as to where you complete your training.

Have you ever wondered if you will be able to find a job when you complete some type of schooling or special training? That is something that many graduates experience after graduating. They are not able to locate employment after graduation. In fact many graduates find employment in areas that are totally opposite to what they studied for. Here is where many offline pharmacy technician training programs shine. Many of them have career placement services that are offered to their graduates for life. Regardless, if you graduated one, three, five, or even 11 years ago, you have complete access to their career placement services.

Is your training program certified? This is something that you should pay close attention too. Many of the training programs that are popping up now have not been accredited. This simply means that after completing the training and you get the diploma or certificate, it has no value. Make sure the program that you attend is accredited by certain organizations. Make sure they follow proper procedures laid out by highly respected and recognized organizations. If you are taking the time to do the in-depth training, make sure you are getting the proper credit for it.

One final benefit of attending an offline pharmacy technician training program is the networking side of things. The people that you meet today can be the employers or friends of employers that you work for tomorrow. Meeting someone in person can leave a lasting impression on them. This can lead to career advancements, new job opportunities, and lasting friendships that you never knew existed. With offline training programs you may attend, social gatherings, form study groups, or just form lasting friendships that can motivate you the rest of your life. Never take networking lightly or take it for granted.

There you have it, a full rundown of the pros and cons of attending offline/online pharmacy technician training programs. They both have their place, but if you want to get more hands on training program choose the offline setup. It will prepare you both physically and mentally.

Golf Courses in West Yorkshire – A Visitors Guide

The golf courses of West Yorkshire are numerous and varied with many famous courses in the area designed by famous golf course architects, Alister MacKenzie in particular but Harry Colt and Robert Trent Jones Snr have examples of their work in the area.

Leeds, perhaps, has more than it’s fair share of good courses with a healthy concentration in the north of the city. The close proximity of Alwoodley, Moortown, Moor Allerton, Sand Moor, Headingley and Scarcroft ensure that even the most demanding of golfing connoisseurs is catered for.

There are, though, many unsung golf courses in West Yorkshire that don’t always get their deserved exposure.

Harry Colt and Alister MacKenzie were involved again in the design of Ilkey GC a beautiful layout with the River Wharfe in play on the left of the first 7 holes. Golfers with a hook beware!
The club is particularly proud with it’s connection with Ryder Cup star Colin Montgomerie who grew up in the area and learnt his golf at Ilkley.

MacKenzie was involved in another good West Yorkshire test of golf at Bingley St Ives where the courses varies between parkland, woodland, moorland and back again as it examines your full golf game. Formerly a municipal golf course, Bingley St Ives hosted the Lawrence Batley International tournament in 1981, 1982 & 1983 won by Sandy Lyle (twice) and Nick Faldo and attracted other top stars like Arnold Palmer and Lee Trevino. The club became a private members club in 1990.
James Braid is another designer who has made his mark on golf courses in West Yorkshire. An excellent layout of his can be played on the exposed to the elements course of Baildon GC high up on the moorlands.

Collaborating with Tom Morris on this design, they created an uncompromising golf course that rewards straight hitting. An equally spectacular setting is the Halifax GC up on the moors near Ogden reservoir. This time teaming up with Alex Herd, Braid created a course where every hole is different and one that demands creative shot making as the wind plays an integral part in the golfing examination.

Equally exposed is the moorland Branshaw GC, situated in Bronte country, James Braid again used the natural terrain and elements to fashion a golf course to test the best.

The views from these three moorland layouts are truly breathtaking as the full majesty of the West Yorkshire landscape is opened to the eye.

Braid was involved in designing the less rugged but no less interesting golf course at Northcliffe GC near Shipley. This time he teamed up with Harry Vardon to create a very interesting course with some attractive yet benign holes balanced with some brutes. Again this course tests all of your game, you need strength and finesse, creativity and pragmatism to score well at Northcliffe.
Any guide to golf courses in West Yorkshire must include the duo of Huddersfield GC and Woodsome Hall.

Fixby Hall is the magnificent clubhouse of Huddersfield GC that hosts an equally good golf course. The first nine is gentler on the legs as it winds in a loop through parkland back to the clubhouse but the hillier back nine tests stamina to the finish. An old established club Fixby numbers a Who’s Who of architects and designers that have had an influence over the years, including Tom Dunn, Alex Herd, W Herbert Fowler, Dr Alister MacKenzie, Hawtree and Donald Steel. And as recently as 2004 spent half a million pounds on upgrading all 18 greens to USGA specifications.

Woodsome Hall GC has a magnificent clubhouse of it’s own dating back to the 16th Century and the course is laid out in the estate of the hall. The first tee is from the lawns of the hall giving a wonderful backdrop to the opening shot of the round. The course is not excessively long but quite hilly placing a premium on accurate shot making in order to build a good score.
There are over 80 golf courses in West Yorkshire and all offer their unique challenges. With it’s excellent network of roads the densely populated urban areas soon open out into golfing country where you are sure to find a golf course to your taste.

How to Write a Romantic Novel

There are a lot of people out there who have the basic premises or idea for any sort of novel (in this case a romantic level), but are just not able to execute it for they cannot decide about how to begin and from where to begin. Well, look no further as here a few tips that can help you in writing a romantic novel.

1. Draw a Plot Outline:

You surely have a basic plot in mind, right? Just write it down. Write down what your story is about, what it deals with, how is it supposed to begin and how is it supposed with some drama or twist elements in the middle. This will help you in going haywire from your plot when you actually start writing the novel.

2. Describe your characters:

Characterization is a significant part of a novel. Always remember, while you may sit all day and all night long working unimaginably hard to write your novel, it may not pay off if your readers don’t connect with the characters in your novel. Thus, write down every minute detail about your lead protagonists in the novel. From their age, background, lifestyle to their nature, attitude and desires of life.

3. Include intriguing events:

When you read a book or watch a movie, especially a romantic one, you kind of know what the ending is going to be, right? But is that what you go to see? No. What grasps you is how the events unfold and how it leads to the climax. Similarly, while writing your romantic novel, you need to think of some interesting events that build up to the plot and lead to the climax.

4. End with panache:

Many writers do a great work on the novel, but while they are on their way end they just rush things up, running out of patience to complete their work and in the process end up spoiling the novel. It is rightly said that save the best for the last. If your whole novel is great but the climax disappoints, then it is going to leave a bad taste in the reader’s mouth and your novel may fall short of the appreciation it very well deserves. Make sure you give equal amount of time and patience to the ending of the novel, adding further quality.

5. Write fitting dialogues:

Dialogues form an integral part of any romantic novel. It is very important to write a dialogue fitting to the situation and the setting in the novel than writing some heavy dosage of romantic lines just to appeal to the element of romance in the novel. Be realistic and natural. If the setting is that of a casual outing between the two protagonists, keep the dialogues real and natural and not some heavy dosage of inspirational lines spoken by the protagonist A to impress protagonist B.

6. Read lots of romantic novels:

Yes, reading helps a lot. When you want to start writing a romantic novel and you have already read a lot of romantic novels in the past, it keeps you ready for the basic structure of your romantic novel. It helps you get the essence of how a good quality romantic novel should be.

7. Keep Patience:

Lack of patience is one of the significant reasons many writers do not get to the level they aspire for. Many writers start well but in the middle of the thing they lose their cool, get frustrated, become dull or give in to the challenges thrown at them by their writing work. You got to know that there is a proper time for everything. If you give up, you will never succeed while if you keep trying the chances only get better. Keeping patience with your work is an important thing. It takes time before you hit the peak.

8. Write regularly:

Many writers kick off pretty well and write their ideas,plots or story for a few days, but at a point they get lazy and even though they know what to write ahead of the matter they have already written, they just don’t feel like writing and postpone it to some other day. Well, tomorrow never comes is what they say and in this case it does apply. Ultimately you keep pushing the date and the day never comes. Finally, you lose interest and your aspiration of writing a romantic novel goes out of the window. Write regularly. Even if it is just a couple of lines. Even if you write a line describing how A proposed B that would do, but just keep writing.

9. Proper Grammar:

Make sure the punctuations and grammar used in the novel is correct. Wrong spellings and the usage of wrong grammar turns off the reader and they might not like to read your novel any further.

10. Enjoy what you write:

Some people try to bring in certain elements in a romantic novel just to appeal to the masses which many a times does them no good. When you are writing a romantic novel, just throw everything out of the window and focus on what you want to write and how you want to write. If you focus on writing what you feel others would like then you end up losing your creativity, adding an unnecessary pressure on yourself and a fate of disappointment in the near future. Write what you are passionate about and what you actually want to write. In short, be yourself.

That should do enough to write your romantic novel. I hope these tips are helpful to you and successfully motivates you to write the kind of romantic novel you want to write.

How To Find Free College Grant Money

You have heard the expression many times before – if you think college is expensive, you ought to see how expensive ignorance is. While there might be some wry humor in that expression, there should be no excuse for someone not going to college these days. There may be very valid reasons for not going to college, but a lack of financial funding should clearly not be one of those reasons.

College grants and college scholarships are abounding today, and in fact, many of the available grants and scholarships actually are not awarded every year, for the simple reason that nobody applied for them! As crazy as that sounds, it is true. Businesses and corporations use the college grant and college scholarships they offer as a tax writeoff, and if it is not awarded, then they lose out on that writeoff, so they are more anxious than ever to award these college grants and college scholarships.

One common myth which is held by many people is that you need to show a financial need before you will be awarded a college grant or college scholarship, or that you need to excel in a particular area, like the star quarterback in football, the ace basketball player who can shoot three-pointers all day long, the violin player or the piano player where it appears that Carnegie Hall is clearly in their very talented musical future, etc. But note that I said these are “myths”. In other words, these perceptions are incorrect.

Today, a college grant or college scholarship is available to virtually any student who has the motivation and the incentive to fill out the application forms. In fact, many students get multiple scholarships and grants, simply because they sat down and took the time to fill out the applications. These are students who do not excel in sports, in music, in drama, or any other area – they simply want to go to college, they understand the importance of having a college education in today’s very competitive real world, and they made the time to go through the steps required.

While there are both grants and scholarships available, grants are more likely to be awarded based on financial need, whereas scholarships are not nearly as closely tied to whether or not there is a financial need. But then again, when you look at the cost of a college education these days, after considering living expenses in a dorm or a campus apartment, meals, books and other very basic necessities, the cost of that college education is going to run well into five figures, perhaps even six figures, so a financial need is not going to be hard to justify for virtually anyone.

College grants and college scholarships differ greatly from the usual student loans like the FAFSA loan that is available through almost any college’s financial aid or admissions office. A student loan needs to be paid back. Although payments usually do not start until after the student has graduated and the interest rate is quite low, the fact that it needs to be paid back makes grants and scholarships a much more attractive option to pursue, since neither grants nor scholarships need to be paid back.

There are going to be incidentals that cannot be anticipated when you are going to college, and the grant or scholarship money may not be immediately available. For this reason, it is a good idea to get a Student Credit Card to handle those unexpected expenses and not put undue stress on you when you need that extra book or to pay that additional lab fee or whatever.

Take the time to search out the many resources available for a college grant or college scholarship. After graduation, it is much better for you if you start out by not being in a huge pile of debt, but can start clean with your new degree.

There is Coaching Available For All Aspects of Life

Coaching is simply a method of providing direction, instruction, and sometimes training. This method can be used on one person or a group of people. The reason behind this process is to help this person or these people to develop a certain skill or to achieve a specific goal. These skills or goals can be simple or highly complex and can be geared towards life in general, running a business, personal issues, for health or sports, in the field of dating, and even because of conflict issues.

This method of guiding individuals has always been around and today it is often referred to as personal development. It is considered a type of discipline and usually provided by professionals, some of which are actually certified in specific forms of personal development. For instance, a dating coach isn’t going to be sent to a business to help with creating short and long-term goals. There is a general training that all coaches go through, but then it branches off into specific areas.

Health Coach

Health coaching is designed for people who are trying to make improvements in his or her overall health. The health coach and client work together, in person or on the phone, or even via email. The coach’s job is to understand the client’s current lifestyle choices and then discuss with the client how those choices affect his or her overall health. Together, they then create an action plan.

Life Coach

Achievement of personal goals is the main focus for these coaches. They are able to help clients determine what they want out of life and how to get it.

Business Coach

Positive support and feedback are provided by these individuals. This can be given to the owner or the entire staff of the business. They can cover every aspect of the business, from teamwork to setting goals.

Personal Coach

This is similar to a life coach, but there are more components involved with this type of personal development. The goals could involve a combination of any of the following; personal, business, or relationship. The job of a personal coach is to help clients form a plan of action for these goals and carry them out successfully.

Sports Coach

Direction for either an entire sports team or for an individual is what a sports coach provides. This direction includes not only the physical aspect of the game, but also the emotional ties involved with it. The coach isn’t simply a guide for the team or individual player, this type of coach is actually held accountable for the results displayed.

Dating Coach

People who need assistance in meeting and attracting partners use dating coaches. These coaches tend to focus on helping people become confident and effective communicators. They may also include aspects of flirting, fashion, sociology, and even psychology.

Conflict Coach

Coaches who deal with conflict resolution are usually called in for marital matters, as well as other types of relationship issues.

Not many people realize that there are this many forms of coaching provided today. There is a coach for just about every aspect of life. People who employ these coaches are usually very satisfied with the results. Some people aren’t able to make a move without consulting a coach of some sort, while others only require the use of one for a limited amount of time.
