Why Does a BRM Exist?
The world is changing. And organizations around the globe are shifting their objectives from profit to purpose.
As the world evolves its understanding of what business truly is, our understanding of purpose begs the question,
“What drives purpose?”
Danielle-Yvonne “Dani” Dizes, Knowledge Champion and Content Strategist for BRM Institute, blew us away with her response to this and other heavy-hitting questions. Delivered in the form of her series-encompassing webinar for professional members, BRM Philosophy: Coming Full Circle, she jumped right into a hands-on exploration about the value of what she calls “philosophical questions”.
“We are all searching for meaning,” Dizes asserts. Powering that search are age-old questions like, “why am I here?” This search for meaning drives what we will ultimately understand to be our purpose. Our purpose will determine many choices, paths and pursuits through life. This includes, where and how we’ll work, how we’ll interact with our families and communities and even how we’ll choose to reflect on existence.
Philosophy and Relationships
Philosophy, or philosophical thought, is defined as the study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reasons, and existence. Put more simply, philosophy is the love of wisdom. As we take the time to reflect on the deeper questions for why and how we do things, we gain knowledge and when that knowledge is applied, we call it wisdom.
Through this process of question, reflection and application, philosophical thought creates purposeful people. This shift towards purpose and higher meaning can be measured by the most abundant and telling resource in the world: our relationships.
Relationships are the ultimate tool for measuring meaning, success, and happiness.
Why does a BRM exist?
As any Business Relationship Manager (BRM) knows, relationships fuel organizations. When silos exist and purpose isn’t shared, productivity and satisfaction decline. One of the most valuable skills that BRMs possess is their ability to cultivate meaningful relationships.
By building a connection, identifying shared values and driving organizational purpose, BRMs create space for individuals to reflect on the philosophy of what they’re doing and to apply that knowledge as wisdom.
Therefore, BRMs represent the BRM philosophy put into action, performing some of the most important work in any organization. As businesses, governments, associations and universities continue the shift from profit to purpose, the importance of BRM will continue to grow.
