Hi. I'm Ed, the Virtual Coach. Welcome to my videos page! In each episode I provide some training and coaching wisdom. 'Hope you enjoy. Please Like them so they let me make more!
In this episode, Ed talks about a big real-world training challenge: Retention.
We train people and then they forget! I know many of you out there are struggling to win the battle against this “Forgetting Curve” thing. But did you ever consider this? Let trainees practice applying what they learn virtually, in real-world situations. It’s a great way to boost retention. And it works!
In this episode, Ed talks about the return on investment (ROI) of Virtual Coaching.
We know organizations that coach, outperform those that don’t. The way I see it, any realistic practice that can be done virtually will free up human coaches, making for a nice ROI.
Ed then shows an example of how virtual practice works in a realistic situation.
In this episode, Ed talks about how to clone a "super coach."
Virtually cloning your best coaches avoids the ethical quandary of real cloning. Plus it's cost effective, and has a great ROI too! How? We’d capture their best role-plays inside software and scale it – so everyone can practice in realistic situations.
Ed then shows an example of how it works within an advanced simulation.
In this episode Ed dives into how to measure performance in realistic training situations.
Most organizations train people, but struggle with measuring how well learners can apply the training in real situations.
Virtual practice coupled with analytics is a powerful way to “pull your training through” and measure how well learners can apply what they learned.
