Trustworthy leaders are VIPs according to a simple model incorporating 

Values, Integrity and Promises.


The VIP Trust Model™






 Copyright © 2014 Next Decade, Inc.


Organizations and their leaders become trustworthy once TRUST is earned.

This is accomplished via the following sequence of actions:

  • VISION & VALUES: Identify why the organization exists and what it stands for.
  • INTEGRITY: Identify, practice and communicate the moral principles and purpose of the leadership team and the organization.  Alignment is essential.
  • PROMISES: Ensure that leadership is held accountable for doing what it says it will do, and for regularly communicating the vision, values and promises to all stakeholders.
