Virtual Reality as a Coaching Tool: The Transformation of Coaching & Soft Skills Training

Training employees’ soft skills with VR has become a reality for top businesses worldwide. How can we use VR for daily coaching practice?



It is a pivotal time for the learning and development industry. VR personal development companies are growing rapidly – and so are their users. Lloyds bank has already upskilled over 500 bankers with VR, PWC has taught hiring, staffing, and performance reviews to 1600 consultants, and Walmart has taught already over 1 million customer service representatives in how to handle conflicts and customer inquiries in VR – all with an emphasis on increasing empathy, self-reflection, and resilience of their employees.

How exactly do these coaching solutions with hundreds of thousands of users work? How do they guide users through their personal development challenges? What works and what doesn’t? How much does it cost? How much technical equipment and knowledge do you need to become VR proficient? And how can you apply VR in your next coaching practice?
