What Is Esprit de BRM?
From work life to personal relationships to achieving personal goals and aspirations, the BRM mindset can advance every facet of our lives.
It’s a lofty promise, but we stand behind it, and here’s why: In any situation, a positive result can be reached quicker and more efficiently if all parties involved communicate effectively, are focused on the same issue, and share the same purpose.
But wait. We all come from different backgrounds, live in different cultures, and have different priorities. How in the world can we all come together with one mind and share one unified purpose?

Five ways to Manage an Overwhelming Workload
We’ve all been there: It’s five o’clock on a Friday afternoon, and not only have you not finished your to-do list for the week, but you can’t find it because it’s buried under the mountain of unexpected projects that popped up after you stepped into the office bright-eyed and ready to roll last Monday. This week feels like it’s beaten you down, like you can’t see the forest for the trees—and frankly, you’re understaffed, overworked, and tired. Sound familiar?

Showing Gratitude in the Workplace
In the world of business, people sometimes feel that they must remain emotionless. Women, in particular, have been conditioned to hide their emotions, to put on a “professional” front, so that they are taken seriously. It’s an antiquated practice that is outdated at best, and it can hinder the human factor that is so necessary for an organization to thrive.
What Is Benchmarking…and Why Should You Care About It?
BRM Institute assembles a yearly report based on data collected from BRMs around the world. Currently, it has an emphasis on compensation, allowing you to easily compare what you make now to the reported salaries of other BRMs in similar roles.
The Great BRM Renaissance (and How the Evolved BRMP Plays a Role)
Here at BRM Institute, we believe that the theory of relationshipism has the potential to change the landscape of organizations around the world. Relationshipism, being built on principles of cognitive science and social intelligence, provides infinite value as it expands the focus of society from shareholder value to the satisfaction of personal purpose, organizational purpose, and societal impact.
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.
A Simple Tool Provides Endless Value
One of the most common challenges throughout the BRM community is communicating BRM value and impact to one’s organization. Another is dealing with issues that fall outside the realm of what they can control. Malini pointed out that one thing all BRMs can control is how they articulate their value, making sure to focus on sharing the value of the practice of BRM, rather than the value of the initiative.
The Path Toward a Relationship-Centered Organization
