Dear friends and partners,

What are the uses of virtual reality (VR)?🤔😁

Virtual reality is a digitally simulated 3D environment. It can be used to explore and interact with virtual surroundings and people in a way that feels real. Collaborating, interviewing, training, workshopping, and testing critical situations before - they become acute –are some of the VR soft-skill use cases in learning and development.

Trying out new tech can feel rough. But without irritation no learning is possible. At the same time, creating safe spaces in the discomfort zone is essential. An experienced coach can help.

„Instead of reading about Virtual Reality in articles, it is much more enlightening to experience the metaverse. Karla guided us through this digital universe, and we felt safe and well-prepared. Her introduction and the support during the session were truly helpful.“

— Jutta Löwe, Data Security Expert
