Every company and every department within a company has one or more VIPs… At least every successful company/department. They might not have a “C” or a “VP” in front of their title, but they are crucial to the success of the team.

Company VIPs are the individuals who are the “go to” people. They get their job done and do it well, but they’re also the ones who everyone else looks to to solve a problem. Company VIPs are the ones who drive innovation.

Every person on the team inherently knows who the VIPs are. It’s not an official title or something that is awarded. It can be earned by anyone. Usually it is the person who cares the most, works the hardest, and of course is the most curious about finding a better way to operate.

Look around your company or department. Who are the VIPs? Are you one of them? Would you like to be one? If so, what are you waiting for? You don’t get promoted, and then become a VIP. You get promoted after you become a company VIP.
