Management Vitals™

Ensure Your Managers are Equipped to Manage and Lead

Effective Managers Start With Effective Training


Management Vitals™

Research shows that one of the most common reasons for employee turnover is bad management. Employees often leave organizations because of their direct manager.

Management Vitals™, a FlashPoint original program, is a proven and practical solution that equips managers with the fundamentals of management, so your employees stay put.


What is Management Vitals™?



Management Vitals™ is a FlashPoint original program that is proven to equip leaders with practical fundamentals of management. Arranged into 4 blocks with a total of 16 versatile modules, you can customize your program to meet the needs of your managers in an engaging experience.

Each module is 2 hours long and covers a singular management topic, from performance reviews to engaging and motivating employees to planning and delegating. The format is a classroom training session to cover practical content that is delivered with a deep understanding of manager’s challenges by our dynamic, trained facilitators.

Our facilitators are able to skillfully keep participants engaged and encourage focused application of learnings back on the job. They know from their own experience in the manager’s chair how participants may need to improve and are able to unlock the ability to progress forward.
