Description

Across industries and functions, soft skills are a clear differentiator in individual and team performance. They are both rare and valuable because they require real experience (mistakes, failure and reflection) to master and reach higher on Bloom’s taxonomy. But how can your learners practice high-stakes interpersonal situations in a safe and efficient fashion?

By using mixed reality VR, you can combine authentic human interaction enhanced with artificial intelligence to scale training and drive true behavior change. 

In this innovative webinar, you’ll...
  • have a chance to “choose your own adventure” and see a simulation come to life
  • grasp the principles of scenario design 
  • dive deep into the science of soft skills training! 

Get the most out of an hour and bring something back to share with your organization.
