Dear Business / HR Leaders,

Every decision a Leader takes has an impact on the lives of employees from salary & health to the possibility of equipment failure or environmental disaster. Can you imagine what the consequences would be if an new employee steps into the control room of a nuclear plant and tries to find out what the plant can do or a new manager belittling his/her staff or not knowing what to say at a meeting. We do agree that every mistake is a learning opportunity but we don't want to bring the company down in that process.

Simulations can be a powerful method to instill real-world skills. The US Marine Corps used Doom to teach battlefield tactics and a recent survey revealed that doctors who used simulations made 37 percent fewer mistakes. So we can conclude that the tools that make better soldiers and doctors can also make better corporate leaders.

Virtual Leader is a simulation program designed to meet the challenges of the new economic era. It is a program that offers eLearning economies while elevating the coaching effectiveness of your staff and a program that can focus your workforce and give them the skills to make effective decisions.

About Virtual Leader
Virtual Leader contains everything you need to get started immediately. It can be used as a stand alone simulation program and can also be integrated into your current Leadership curriculum/program.

The concept behind Virtual Leader is a fascinating one: Put a Leader inside a simulated work environment to practice the tenets of three-to-one Leadership. The manner in which Virtual Leader's computer-generated 3-D employees talk, react and display their support or disagreement is not only an impressive feat of design, but also an engaging approach to leadership training.

Simulations can be threatening to first time users, but Virtual Leader has excellent background material which brings learners up to speed quickly. It comes with a guide that describes the theory. Feedback plays a key role in Virtual Leader. The learner is given a summary of how he or she used the key tenets of three-to-one leadership to manage the expectations of the meeting. Indirect feedback between characters also facilitates learning.
