A reader writes: Hi, I’m a young entrepreneur, I am currently working in the US as an investor, with a team of around 4-5 people, who are looking to get a good job in a large corporation and have some cashflow to spare.
I’ve been to several business training programs, but none that really addressed my questions about what’s most important in a training program.
Is it practical and relevant?
Is it structured and realistic?
How much does it cost?
What are the expected benefits?
Do I need to be involved in any of the steps to get there?
Can I skip it altogether?
The only thing that really stuck with me was the “how much is it?” question.
I’m not a huge fan of the $150+ price tag, and I was hoping that a business training course would give me more insight into what it actually costs to run a company.
The program I went to offered courses in everything from “business leadership” to “leadership theory” and the majority of the courses I took focused on just how much they cost, not what they teach.
In my experience, these are not necessarily the most valuable aspects of a business-management program.
If you have any questions, feel free to share them in the comments.
My biggest complaint was that most of the online business training courses focus on the cost of the program rather than the program itself.
I am really hoping that there will be a better online alternative to this in the future, and that a more targeted business training curriculum could address the costs and benefits of a program.
