Virtual human training technology powered by artificial intelligence

Teaching leadership and communication skills with VR and AI

How do you practice skills like negotiating and sales, simulate what it’s like to handle a difficult customer, or gain experience giving critical feedback? Identified by LinkedIn’s 2019 Workplace Learning Report as a top priority for talent development, leadership and communication skills are among the most valuable professional skills an employee can have, but are also some of the most difficult skills to practice and teach.

Talespin’s CoPilot virtual human training technology helps employees develop these critical leadership and communication skills through virtual role play. CoPilot training modules place employees in scenarios where they converse with AI characters representing colleagues and customers, providing a safe space for practicing their most critical conversations.

The Need for ‘Soft Skills’

As automation impacts the workplace, uniquely ‘human’ skills like leadership, empathetic communication, and collaboration are becoming more critical than ever. However, a growing gap exists among new generations of the workforce across these key interpersonal skills, with L&D experts citing ‘soft skills’ as the most significant workforce skills gap. To address this gap, training methods for leadership skills need to improve, as techniques like traditional role play lack the emotional realism or scalability needed to deliver transformation.

With Copilot training modules you can:

01 Teach interpersonal skills with emotional realism

Virtual role-play with realistic AI characters injects emotional realism into training

02 Simulate nuanced professional situations

Create training modules for scenarios that are typically difficult to realistically simulate

03 Practice soft skills in the safety of a virtual environment

Virtual human training programs offer employees exposure to difficult situations in a safe, repeatable training environment

04 Create scalable and repeatable soft skills training programs

Software-based VR training programs can easily be scaled throughout a distributed workforce

05 Measure the development of interpersonal skills

Virtual human training modules offer scoring and performance feedback for measuring employee development
