The VR Experience

In this VR active listening skills training, employees are placed in an immersive simulations where they are meeting with two colleagues, Dave and Amy. Dave just got feedback from his manager and he’s pretty upset. He needs to talk. Amy jumps in and tries to help out…poorly. The employee’s first task is to observe Amy and identify poor active listening behaviors. Later, face-to-face with Dave, the employee will have a chance to listen to Dave and practice active listening skills in order to help him towards finding a solution.
