The Cognitive & Emotional Assessment presents two ways of access:

  • cognitive: what you know you’re doing, how you function…, measured by questions
  • physiological: your body’s reactions, measured by skin moisture sensors, pulse, during the virtual reality experience

How is the Balance Sheet going?

The assessment consists of different phases:

  1. an online questionnaire -20 minutes-
  2. a virtual reality experience -40 minutes-
  3. a restitution -2h-
  4. it is followed by coaching sessions, in order to refine the links between the results, the situation experienced and your coaching objectives


The Cognitive & Emotional Assessment is a diagnostic element of a coaching course, which allows you to quickly access information about your cognitive, emotional and social skills. Three fields of expertise that allow you to navigate professional life.

How does the Virtual Reality experience take place?

VR makes it possible to stimulate the brain in different modes – concentration and relaxation, stimulation by playful situation, to measure its characteristics.
Its restitution with the coach makes it possible to transfer these measures into useful learning in your professional life, according to the objectives of evolution that you set for yourself.
The different modes of stimulation are in particular those of the confrontation with the novelty and the intense situations -overload, difficulty, pressure, stress …-, as well as the modes of recovery.

  • Space Stress: It also measures the level of attention (selection of relevant information), inhibition (occultation of irrelevant information) and flexibility (ability to switch from one action to another).
  • Sonification: ability to relax, openness to oneself, listening to one’s body
