In France, more and more high-potential managers seek an additional diploma in management. They then begin a long part-time training programme. As they look for new knowledge in order to obtain that coveted job, they discover that they are involved in process of a self-recovery. Confrontation with other participants, the training methods as a whole, and in particular coaching, help them to discover new possibilities. Usually, they have talents and repressed desires that have been hidden for a long time.
