“Organizations exist to serve. Period. Leaders live to serve. Period.” —Tom Peters
Are your leaders ready to excel in today’s work environment?
Becoming a leader doesn’t mean you have the right to be a dictator. In today’s ever-changing business environment, it is critical to develop the skills of your leaders to help improve morale and increase productivity.
Are you training SERVANT leaders?
SERVANT leaders drive results by enriching the lives of the people and the organizations they serve. SERVANT leaders understand that INFLUENCE is measured by relationship skills, not position or title.
Leadership skills aren’t trained – they’re developed and that’s why VITAL Solutions is committed to SERVE the leadership needs of your organization.

“I think the currency of leadership is transparency. You’ve got to be truthful. I don’t think you should be vulnerable every day, but there are moments where you’ve got to share your soul and conscience with people and show them who you are, and not be afraid of it.” – Howard Schultz
If communication is essential to the needs of any organization – transparent communication is vital to the lifeline of your organization. Creating a culture that’s safe and transparent, requires a willingness to be vulnerable while maintaining the highest levels of integrity.
When your organization is able to operate from a position of transparency and trust, your people are more willing to share information upward, downward and laterally. We’ll help you develop your people, so that you can focus on their future.
“Transparent leadership is the key to fostering a culture of trust between leaders and their employees. Employees who are kept in the loop and understand their role in the overarching purpose and goals of the company are, understandably, more likely to put their trust in their employer.” – Andre Lavoie

“As more and more artificial intelligence is entering into the world, more and more emotional intelligence must enter into leadership.” ― Amit Ray, Enlightenment Step by Step
When the stakes are high and the deal must be won, you can ill afford to let them see you sweat. The reality is we’re not robots. We’re humans, creatively wired with emotions, however, emotional intelligence (EQ) is not like your intelligence quotient (IQ). It is a skill that if properly developed can improve communication, enhance leadership outcomes and decrease conflict. In addition, emotional intelligence can lead to better team building and foster an environment for a healthier workplace.
At VITAL Solutions we pride ourselves on the things that matter most. Let us help you grow the talent you have by developing the skills they need. After all, a higher EQ focuses on self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management, which directly translates to leaders that are not only able to execute the mission, they are able to think through the process.

With the ever-changing needs of today’s consumer, it is critical that companies hire talent from all walks of life (i.e. ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, education, and religion) that can continue to inspire innovation.
Our value-add is to help organizations achieve this goal by educating, teaching and developing your people. We’ll help you foster an environment that breeds oneness, improves performance, promotes equality and provides value to your employees, customers and stakeholders.
