Why Too Many Trainings Aren’t Good for You

Surely there’s nothing like too much learning.  Learning never stops and we’ll never know everything. So isn’t it the case that the more we learn, the better? Won’t we be better experts in our fields the more courses, trainings, seminars we take?

Learning can be addictive just like many other things, and yes, there are addicts to learning in this world. These people sign up for every seminar, course, training that catches their attention propelled by the excitement of the promise that this course / seminar / training will make them better. But they don’t realize that while they’re course hopping they’re taking the focus away from the path of their core expertise – and  constantly out of pocket while contributing to the pockets of the organizers of the courses. Professionals in many fields hold courses and seminars because courses and seminars are a good earner. One needs only one venue, equipment, host or team of hosts, and marketing mechanism to hold a course, yet can have any number of people pay for it at once. The greater the number, the higher the profit.

If you tend to generalize, I’m not saying that going to courses, seminars, and trainings is bad.  I am saying that going to too many is bad – for your pocket and loss of focus.  Too many courses that teach different ways to kill the same cat can dilute your focus and get you pulled in too many directions.  Spreading yourself too thinly will make you a jack of all trades, but a master of none.  And while you’re sitting in all these courses and seminars you’re not helping your clients and learning valuable lessons in the process.

Another reason why too many seminars, trainings, courses aren’t good for you is that the brain can only hold so much information.  If we don’t use it, we lose it.  If we constantly learn new approaches to the same thing in new courses, we’re inevitably diluting the knowledge we already have, because we can’t learn new and revise the old at once.  If we don’t revise the old, we don’t solidify it in our memories and it’ll eventually go out of our minds. So in the final analysis we’ll always only hold a certain amount in our brains no matter how many trainings we go through.

If you’re starting in any professional field, you may be at a quandary about what path to take in the field – what to specialize in and focus on.  Full of enthusiasm you may feel lured by all the offers of courses, seminars, and trainings that you come across and be confused about what to take even before you get addicted to  trainings… You will do yourself best service if you decide – and record on paper – what you want to focus on and specialize in and what skills you need to learn and what skills you can put on the horizon of future possibilities. Then pick training that will give you the skills essential for your specialization and when you’ve done all the training in and plenty of practical experience of them you’ll be better informed about what else you need to learn and what you want to learn for additional inspiration.

Why Your Family Member or Friend Will Never Be Your Coach

It’s amazing how many people would immensely benefit from coaching, yet don’t wanna pay for it, because their argument is that they can’t afford it or wouldn’t wanna talk to a stranger about their problems. They think that talking to their family members or friends about their problems will do the job, and perhaps even better, because the family member or friend knows and will understand them.  Here’s why this approach won’t work and coaches have tremendous value in and to the society.

Why Coaching Over 3 – 4 Months Adds More Value Than Coaching Over 4 – 6 Weeks

Filed Under (Life Coaching & NLP) by NLP-Life-Coach on 29-09-2016

Many coaches offer the coaching process of 4 or 6 weeks and then offer their clients the possibility to extend the it.  In the field of executive coaching asking clients to prepay 3-month blocks of coaching sessions is standard practice. And now more and more coaches are jumping on the bandwagon by offering 3-month blocks to their life coaching clients.  Why does this approach add more value than the traditional 4 – 6-week approach?  Read the rest of this entry »

So You Say Psychology Isn’t Important?

It’s incredible how many times I’ve heard people [especially in the corporate professions such as transport, law, IT, banking, and a few others] tell me that they were worried about people who take a degree in psychology, because psychology was too wishy-washy, uncertain for the prospect of getting secure jobs on the basis of a degree in it, and somewhat not as important as were their professions [of course they’d say that!].  Their core argument was ‘we need lawyers, we need IT almighties, we need transport, we need bankers, but we don’t really need psychologists’.  These same people would also tell me that the number of people who go for a degree in psychology is the highest of all degrees simply because psychology is the easiest degree to get and if one wants a degree for the sake of the paper to give them the passport to a job in any field, a degree in psychology is an obvious choice without needing too much effort.  But then…   Read the rest of this entry »
