How to Talk Yourself to Success
What would you attempt if you knew failure was impossible?
When we respond to opportunities with positivity and motivation, our bodies release dopamine. The release of this prized chemical in the brain, known as the “reward drug”, naturally improves our mood, increases our focus, and boosts internal motivation.
Inspiring the World Through BRM: Jeremy Byrne
As a firm believer in business relationship management’s ability to drive value, evolve culture, and build partnerships to satisfy purpose, Jeremy Byrne successfully provides value to almost every corner of his organization through a BRM capability.
“Sure” Is a Funny Word!
“Sure” is a funny word. When used in conjunction with a possessive pronoun it indicates total conviction – i.e. “I am sure.”
However, when used outside of the sentence (and especially without a possessive pronoun), it indicates reticence, passivity or sarcasm.
So how do you know which way to interpret someone’s “sure”?
Thrive with Purpose when Changing Careers
Throughout the 20th century, the concept of the career employee represented the gold standard for most of the workforce. If you could land a position with plenty of job security, you could stay in that role for years and work your way up the ranks of a single company.
Despite this, changing careers has always been a hallmark of professional life.
Coming Full Circle with BRM as a Philosophy
The dawn of the 21st century shed its rosy glow on a new way of thinking. Workers began to realize that killing themselves for shareholders they’d never meet and a bottom line they’d never see just didn’t make sense. The term “value” began to take on a different meaning. Notably, value expanded from tangible goods and money to include intangibles such as happiness, health, vacation-time, and purpose.
How to Own Your Emotions using Self-Regulation
Emotions are simply tools that we use to process and understand information. Thus, when we allow ourselves that time to process, we can mindfully respond in a manner that provides mutual value through self-regulation.

How to Train Your Empathy for Deeper Connections
“Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes.”
This age-old idiom has permeated society for generations, drawing its roots back to a Mary T. Lathrap poem in 1895. So, why does this century-old adage still echo with relevance today?
The Enhanced BRM Institute Mission & Value Statement
This year we are focused on supporting the goals and ambitions of our global member volunteers. At the forefront of the conversation is the shift from profit to purpose and the value of being human!
When it Comes to Work-Life Balance, We Are what We Think
If you are fortunate, your work becomes a natural, organic part of your ideal life, requiring minimal effort to balance. For many, however, finding a compromise between the work you do to support yourself and the life that makes it all worthwhile can be a challenge.
Improve Your Job Satisfaction by Understanding your Coworkers
Knowledge is power. This is true of intellectual knowledge, of course, but it is also true in the sense of knowing others in the workplace. Bringing a group of people together into an office of all different backgrounds, personalities, and work styles in hopes that they mesh well could be a recipe for disaster.
Volunteering can help Improve Your Health & Career
Today’s theme for BRMWeek is about volunteering. But let’s take it a step further, and focus on our potential to impact others based on our unique experiences, stories, abilities, and passions. Often times, people find that through volunteering, yet we can make an impact on a daily basis.
Adopting a Shared Language Drives Business Value
To navigate today’s interconnected business world, leaders, entrepreneurs, and teams must build bridges with language, not walls. Although this feat proves difficult, you can establish shared language through a variety of methods.
