The Internet is full of a huge number of training offers and various types of trainings for further training in one or another field of activity. Advertising promises lightning success in the shortest time. But is it really so?
Training – course duration from 1 day to several months. To date, the most common psychological training, increasing the business activity of a person, the ability to respond correctly in life situations. Practically all trainings are business oriented. Prices for such courses on average fluctuate from 20,000 to 40,000 rubles. The figures are not big, so the question immediately arises: are these trainings effective, how much are they estimated in terms of money?
For which the fee:
The course usually contains a brief theoretical basis and a large number of practical exercises. The lessons simulate situations that in normal life can cause difficulties, and scenarios of human behavior are rehearsed in the created conditions. Each member of the group has the opportunity to test themselves and learn to play any situation in their favor. The whole group is led by the coach.
The main problem of all trainings is that they can not guarantee a 100% result. Despite the fact that programs are written by professional psychologists and are conducted by experienced trainers, the human factor is always a stumbling block. Namely, how much people who came to the course are ready to receive information.
Also need to understand that for 1 day for any money the world can not make out of the pony of a fighting horse. Therefore advertising courses that promise to make you a Human in 3 days simply says untruth 🙂
Very often there is a situation where “professional psychologists and experienced coaches” are not actually such. Loud advertising does not always mean a good result of the course. Therefore, when choosing a course, do not be lazy, look for reviews or any information about it “from the outside.”
Another feature of trainings is the difficulty of revealing their practical effectiveness. That is, it is difficult to clearly define in which situation the acquired skill works. And the result of using this skill again can not always be positive.
However, classes are new information. This is the main positive feature that any training has. Usually the courses play the most frequently encountered conflict situations or the behavior scenarios of interacting groups. That is, the participants of trainings have information about how, who and why can behave under a certain confluence of circumstances. And “forewarned” means armed. ”
You will probably ask: “How then to determine which training is worthwhile to go to and what is not?”
1. The number of lessons should be more than 1. It is better to have 4 lessons per hour than one, but four hours.
2. Training should be highly specialized. The wider the name of the course, the more skills promised, the less attention is paid to learning a particular skill. That is, the foundations of the foundations will be given. For example, the sphere of trade:
Narrow course: – Work with a potential client – Work with a satisfied client- Skill of the product offer- Skill convictions
Wide course: – Work with the client- Work on the supply of goods- Work in stressful situations- Concentration of attention in
Other things being equal (the number of hours and the amount of material), the effectiveness of the narrow course is much higher than the broad one.
3. Training should be focused on a certain type of activity, on professional membership. Trade is one thing, recruitment is another, leadership and management is the third.
Summing up, we can say that the effect of the training is equally dependent on both the professionalism of the learning party and the desire to learn something from the learner’s side.Therefore, strive for knowledge, but be careful!
