AR/VR in Soft Skills
Soft skills, like emotional intelligence, communication skills, conflict management, and stress management, enable an individual to be a more effective leader, and a collaborator. This allows the individual to become more aware of the types of behaviour that are appropriate, how to recognize them, and also how to create those behaviours to apply them in a highly effective manner. VR and AR are beneficial in many learning situations. Interactive virtual reality platforms are perfect for such soft skills behavioural training as they enable the learner to fully absorb the situation. Additionally, with an appropriately constructed platform, the learner can be positioned in a wide range of scenarios and situations that include large or small numbers of spectators, a narrow or broad assortment of genders and ethnicities, and so on.
Immersive Soft Skills Trainer
Soft skills are an essential element in the development of one’s work personality. Soft skills are a combination of people skills, social skills, communication skills, character or personality traits, attitudes, career attributes, social intelligence and emotional intelligence quotients, and so on. These enable people to work well with others and achieve the goals. As these are very subjective and difficult to quantify, they can be difficult to instruct others on, and train.
Veative has developed a soft skills based VR solution for a leading FMCG (Fast-Moving Consumer Goods) company. These modules include such topics as proper grooming, customer typology, and so on. The user is required to work through various scenarios and perform tasks and activities like putting the items in priority buckets, choosing responses based upon types of customers, and so on. The modules are linked to a dashboard from which a variety of stakeholders, such as the field supervisor, HR manager, etc… can monitor the performances remotely. The modules developed a sense of competition among the users and hence helped them to be competitive.
