How to choose a business training?

Training - a course of duration from 1 day to several months. To date, the most common psychological training, increase the business activity of the person, the ability to properly respond in life situations. Almost all trainings are business oriented. Prices for such courses on average range from 20,000 to 40,000 rubles. The numbers are rather big, so the question immediately arises: are these trainings so effective, how much are they valued in monetary terms?

For what fee:

The course usually contains a brief theoretical base and a large number of practical exercises. In the classroom, situations that in everyday life may cause difficulties are simulated, and scenarios of human behavior in the current conditions are rehearsed. Each member of the group has the opportunity to test themselves and learn to beat every situation in their favor. Supervises the whole action coach of the group.

The main problem of all trainings is that they cannot guarantee 100% results. Despite the fact that programs are written by professional psychologists and conducted by experienced trainers, the human factor is always a stumbling block. Namely, as far as the people who came to the course are ready to accept information.

You also need to understand that in 1 day for any money in the world it is impossible to make a pony out of a pony. Therefore, advertising courses that promise to make a Man out of you in 3 days simply tells a lie :-)

Very often there is a situation when “professional psychologists and experienced trainers” are not really such. Loud advertising does not always mean a good course result. Therefore, choosing a course, do not be lazy, look for reviews or any information about it "from the side".

Another feature of the training is the difficulty of identifying their practical effectiveness. That is, it is difficult to clearly determine in which situation the acquired skill works. Moreover, the result of using this skill again may 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 common conflict situations or scenarios of the behavior of interacting groups. That is, participants of trainings receive information about how, who and why can behave under a certain set of circumstances. And "forewarned is forearmed."

You will surely ask: “How, then, to determine which training it makes sense to go to, and which one does not?”


1. The number of classes should be more than 1. It is better to let it be 4 lessons for an hour than one, but 4 hours.

2. Training should be highly specialized. The wider the name of the course, the more skills are promised, the less attention is paid to learning a particular skill. That is, the basics of the basics will be given. For example, the scope of trade:

Narrow course: - Work with a potential client - Work with a successful client - Product supply skills - Persuasion skills

A wide course: - Work with the client - Work on the offer of goods - Work in stressful situations - Concentration of attention in work

Other things being equal (number of hours and volume of material), the effectiveness of a narrow course is much higher than a wide one.

3. Training should be focused on a specific type of activity, on professional affiliation. Trade is one thing, recruitment is another, leadership and management is the third.

Summarizing, we can say that the effect of the training equally depends on the professionalism of the training party and on the desire to learn something from the side of the student. Therefore, strive for knowledge, but be careful!
