What is VIP²?

VIP² stands for “Values driven, Informed, Passionate People.”

Whether it is an organization, or society as a whole, true sustainable success is dependent on Values driven, Informed and Passionate People.

At VIP², we believe an organization’s bottom line is directly tied to the work environment and the people in that environment. Unfortunately, the impact of the work environment/people doesn’t appear as one “line item” on the P&L statement so it is often ignored or given minimal focus. However, every executive and every leader inherently knows that the impact of these factors is extremely significant and is woven into EVERY LINE of the P&L. Great leaders will act on this knowledge.

We have worked in VIP² environments and those at the other end of the spectrum so we know first hand that amazing results can be achieved and lives can be transformed when an organization cares for their people, invests in them through training and development and holds them to high expectations.

We serve as catalysts for organizations and their people by exposing them to a different view of what true, sustainable success looks like — success that extends beyond the walls of the workplace and by equipping them to realize this broader view of "success".
