Deputies of the State Duma of the Russian Federation proposed to create a register of “infogypsies” – unscrupulous coaches and business coaches. The parliamentarians came to this conclusion during a meeting on licensing the activities of business coaches. This was reported to journalists by First Deputy Head of the State Duma Committee on Education, Yana Lantratova.
What will the registry of “infogypsies” look like?
So far, a clear idea about the registry “Infogypsy” no. Judging by the deputies' statements, the idea is at the level of discussion. “My colleagues and I agreed that it is necessary to think about creating a registry of infogypsies. We will create an inter-factional group. While we collected ideas, we outlined the problem,” Lantratova explained to reporters.
As a result of the meeting, it was also decided to create a working group on legislative regulation of the activities of personal growth coaches and business coaches.
Note that the proposal was initiated by State Duma Vice Speaker Boris Chernyshovand First Deputy Head of the State Duma Committee on Education Yana Lantratova.
By the way, according to various expert estimates Today, more than half a million business coaches work in Russia, writes Parlamentskaya Gazeta. Most of them — freelancers. According to the publication, these are “specialists” who do not have a professional education and work for themselves.
Earlier, the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection also announced that they had prepared a professional standard for such specialists.
Who are “infogypsies”?
– these are trainers who sell their information products (courses, guides, trainings, marathons and books) that have no practical value. The “Infogypsies” themselves can position themselves as business coaches, coaches, motivators, promotion specialists, etc.
This is a relatively “young” concept. The term came into use in 2021.
The essence of the business «infogypsy» lies, according to them, in the uniqueness of the information product, which supposedly will bring the buyer the same success that brought the author of the course. His words «infogypsies» backed up with colorful photos with expensive yachts and cars on personal pages on Instagram.
