Accelerating Experience in
Conversational Leadership

Discover the most efficient way to train the conversational habits of your Leaders, improving their understanding of body language and fostering the entire team’s performance.

Certainly, you know that experience is the most powerful ingredient of performance. Anyone with proven experience in a specific field would be the most desired player of a committed team.

Managing Critical Conversations does not make an exception: only proven experience in dealing with certain topics is what ensures the necessary level of confidence required to turn a potential crisis into an empowering moment.

However, as an L&D and HR professional, you know how long it does take to support leaders in gathering enough field experience in the most important and critical conversations using the traditional means of training. Ensuring that they are confident, effective and autonomous in dealing with those subjects can take ages and, in the end, result in being very expensive and little scalable.

AI-based Digital Role Plays offer the possibility to repeat the same conversation several times and every time to experience different nuances generated by the AI algorithm influencing the real-time flow of the conversation. At the same time, the same type of behavior can be practiced in different scenarios, with different types of persons and goals.

All this leads to extensive experience being stored in a very short time and with little effort.

The result and the benefit for the trainee are fantastic. With much more experiences in such a little time, the feeling of higher confidence – connected to the “I was here before, I know what expect” – flows much faster and becomes one of the elements contributing to the quicker and higher development of confidence in the conversational skills.
