Online leadership training

Recent figures show that a significant number of employees suffer from burnout complaints. They experience a demotivating working climate. An abundance of information, constant pressure and the feeling of having little autonomy are important causes. As a leader or manager you have a huge impact on this. But how do you use that impact to achieve higher motivation, happiness at work and better performance? How do you make a difference in the conversations that matter?

The idea behind DialogueTrainer is to improve communication skills by focusing on immersive learning. We realize this with challenging online simulations in which you practice with virtual training actors. Our online platform was co-developed by Utrecht University.
