Virtual Reality for Leadership Development

Immerse Leaders in a New Learning Environment

The fastest and most effective way to learn is by doing. But leaders don’t always get the chance to learn on the job. It takes time for them to gain the knowledge and leadership experience to get it right. This is where virtual reality for leadership development can help. 

Virtual reality opens up a whole new world of immersive learning, giving your leaders the benefits of on-the-job learning, without the risks of failure. Fueled by our award-winning leadership development content and a partnership with Strivr, the market leader in immersive virtual reality training, skills are developed in realistic simulations. In a safe virtual environment, your leaders have the opportunity to learn like they are on the job, but without the risk.  

How VR Drives Inclusion

Why is inclusion so tough to achieve? Because many people have never experienced the opposite – exclusion. They’re not emotionally connected to the issue, but virtual reality can change that!  

DDI’s Virtual Reality Inclusion Experience immerses leaders in what it’s like to feel excluded and works to develop empathy. This can change the course of inclusion in your organization.

I started to think, "Have I been on the other side of the table where I’ve made people feel like they can’t get a word in edgewise?"

Use VR to Practice Soft Skills

Virtual reality is a whole new way for leaders to practice their soft skills, creating new options for blended learning. Using VR enables leaders to practice tough and emotional conversations – the kind you won’t see in the classroom. 

The theory and concepts are learned online on their own. Participants then wear a VR headset to get immersed in a simulation to try out new skills. Participants get all of the practice without any fear of failure. They practice first in virtual reality, then discuss what they learned with their peers in a virtual or in-person classroom setting.

Virtual reality has the power to help leaders experience and manage emotional leadership situations in a way that no other tool or learning technique can.
