Hi. I'm Ed, the Virtual Coach. Some find me funny, others think I'm a little full of myself. One thing is for sure: I've got lots of training and coaching wisdom! Enjoy my videos.
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!
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.
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.
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.
In live training, there’s just no time for people to practice what they learned in realistic situations. And without practice, retention and behavior-change will suffer. The solution is to go virtual. Create realistic virtual situations where your people can practice optimal decision making.
What separates average performers from top ones is a skill that your team can learn. It’s the ability to make optimal decisions in diverse situations, or “Situational Decision Making.” How? Practice! Practicing decision making in realistic situations with expert coaching – that’s the ticket.
