VR Soft Skills

Soft skills are the skills needed to create the desired social interactions (presentation, client service, business communication, negotiation, mediation, argumentation, persuasion, coaching, leadership, crisis management). At a time of increasing automation, it is the human factor - the skills and competences of specific workers - that decide on success in a competitive environment.

Virtual reality soft skills

Weaknesses of current training methods

It was difficult to measure progress in the methods of teaching soft skills so far; the effect of training is assessed by subjective evaluation of the student. It is not clear to the company to what extent the learning effect is used in practice and the return on investment cannot be determined. Passive transmission of context-free information is a non-practice learning, one size fits all training is not very effective because different people act differently in a given situation.

Benefits of VR training

Training in VR provides an authentic experience, one is 100% present and has a realistic multi-sensory perception of the rehearsed situation. Especially where traditional methods have been ineffective or have hit their limits, virtual training can deliver an absolute learning effect. Training changes unsatisfactory habits and acquired skills are immediately applicable in practical life.
