From Fear to Fearless

Insider /

Fear can rule the workplace. No matter the organization or industry you work for, self-induced fear has the real possibility of controlling you. It doesn’t matter if you work for the most generous, creative, collaborative, innovative, diverse, and accepting organization, if you are riddled with fear, it can quite possibly rule your choices, control your actions, and taint your creative process. Fear has a unique power. It recounts the story you tell yourself and it creates the terrorizing dialogue you use in your head. When fear becomes the narrator of your stories, catastrophizing becomes your way to justify your anxiety-riddled thought process.

What Gives Me the Right to Be Here? The Imposter Syndrome

Insider /

People who experience impostor syndrome often succumb to the idea that they aren’t worthy of their position. You become stuck in a vicious cycle and it’s hard to see any way out of it. What you may not know is that IS is built and nurtured within the confines of your subconscious mind. It’s created by your personal experiences, societal ethos, and the wash and repeat stories saturating your conscious and subconscious mind.

Time to Stop Taking Orders

Opinion /

Today, organizations need forward thinkers, innovative individuals who will not take scripted answers and pats of pacification on the head. That forward thinker is you! It is tough to shift your role. It can be intimidating to take your future in your hands and show leadership that you are a strategic partner and not an order taker. But, within that frame of consciousness is where you can seize the opportunity to rise to the occasion. It takes finesse and confidence to enter the king’s lair and not bend a knee, but instead meet them eye-to-eye.

Organizational Blues? What to Do

Insider /

You believed in the organization’s purpose, yet the organizational culture is proving to be the opposite. You want to make a difference, except that the lack of value and partnership in leadership and employees is becoming too much. Still, you know deep down that this organization has the potential to be more than what it’s showing up to be because you’re seeing little glimpses of greatness.

The 5 Factors That Matter

Opinion /

The factors of an organization matter. The ways in which an organization conducts business, treats its employees, delivers value, and keeps innovating matter. To a relationship-centered organization (RCO), these factors can establish a positive perception of purposeful results. They can also connect individuals’ needs to the organization’s purpose, thereby increasing employee engagement inside and outside the organization.

Where is my place in the world?

Insider /

Today more than ever, people are expecting organizations to keep to their word and stand by their purpose. If an organization claims to hire people with a growth mindset, help establish meaningful relationships, and build trust among its partners, the organization is expected to see it through. Meaningless words are just words without ideation, and ideation that doesn’t have follow through ends up as pointless theories taking up valuable space. Words matter, and how we use them is significant.

Now-to-New: How BRM Can Innovate Organizational Change

Insider /

As BRMs, we know that we will always be flexible and available to pivot when necessary. We also know that since our quest to harness value is never-ending, we will always be in the flux of change, and we will always have a static “now” which will evolve into “new” when changes are implemented…which is a cycle that will always continue.

The ABCs: Relationships and You

Insider /

An RCO is an organization that sees the benefit and added value in purposeful relationships. It is a comprehensive system focused on relationships as the source for limitless energy, driving value, and helping an organization satisfy its purpose.
