Without going into great detail, here are the 7 key points I make in teaching someone how to run:
7) Finally, faster cadence is not the answer! Cadence and foot strike may be correlated, but we all know from science classes that correlations are not cause-effect. Go down to the National Mall and watch hundreds of heel strikers with a cadence at 90+. I would even argue that the faster cadence often promotes heel striking. If I can get someone into a midfoot strike, but with a slow turnover, that's okay because correcting cadence takes much less work.
