“When we first met, and after reading his first book on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, I wondered ‘Is this Chip dude for real? Implementing self-actualization in a company?!?’ My curiosity drove me to visit a few of his hotels, including Hotel Vitale, where I eventually concluded: these are the happiest employees I’ve ever met. He has figured out what makes people tick. Deal-making? Empire building? Self-fulfillment? He’s your guy.”

— Tim Ferriss, author of The Four Hour Work Week and The Four Hour Body


Chip is not currently consulting, however…

PEAK Strategy Sessions and implementation are available through Sue Funkhouser, who helps embed PEAK principles and self-actualizing practices for both employees and customers in organizations. Sue can be reached at or 310.473.6476.
