What Gives Me the Right to Be Here? The Imposter Syndrome
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
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
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
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?
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
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
Let’s take a look at the ABCs of a relationship-centered organization (RCO) and break them down into digestible little nuggets of knowledge. 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. It establishes value in the triple bottom line consisting of people, purpose, and planet.
What’s My Role?
As a BRM, you are in a unique position. You get to use the BRM capabilities in the best possible way to facilitate a partnership with people in your organization. Personal experiences, stories of triumphs, and tribulations always help other BRMs with both their struggles and achievements.

Whether you love to set goals; have a chance for a fresh, clean start; or aim to leap forward to work on professional or personal aspirations; it’s time to embrace spring with a renewed excitement for all of the opportunities it may hold. As the sunny days start to outnumber the stormy ones, we’re taking a moment to list (in no particular order) seven influential books that we feel will strengthen your skills and spark excitement toward building better relationships.
Is It Really About Relationships?
The world has the potential to be completely transformed by discovering what a relationship-centered organization (RCO) is and how much value it adds to workplaces and lives. Too many organizational leaders conform to old ideologies, not realizing the growth potential in transforming their mindset.
What’s With the Why?
When an organization establishes a thoughtful and clear shared purpose, it gives employees something tangible. An organization’s purpose should inspire and motivate people. When a shared purpose is clear and concise, employees will contribute more, share their knowledge, and utilize their abilities and skills to make sure the organization thrives.
Cultural Impact on Purpose
All work relationships are built upon perspective, a reason for the relationship. When the basis of the relationship is initiated on a clear and compelling purpose, and the purpose is consistent with the culture, the framework of the relationship has a solid footing.
