The advantage of having access to a helicopter is that we can rise above a situation, get an overview, or ‘the big picture’, as it is often called, and then descend to the appropriate place where we can be of most help, where our intervention can have greatest impact. If we do not get this overview to begin with, then there is a danger that we will not know where and when to intervene. We may be drawn into intervening where the pressures or demands are greatest, but this will not necessarily be the place to achieve the greatest change or the best progress. Before tackling one part of a problem situation, it is wise to have at least some idea of how the different parts of that situation connect together and form the whole.
