The High-Performing BRM

Business Relationship Management (BRM) is one of the most impactful roles in an organization. But to rise to that challenge, BRMs must go beyond their certification to learn the skills and strategies needed to perform at the highest level and become an indispensable part of the organization.


The High-Performing BRM Workshop teaches participants to learn how to apply BRM to make a real impact on their organization and deliver on the promise that BRM has to offer.


Through a combination of classroom sessions and experiential learning, participants learn – and practice – what it takes to be high-performing and impactful BRMs.

BRM Coaching and Training

We work directly with individual BRMs or BRM teams to teach the critical skills and strategies needed to be top performing BRMs. This includes specific tactics and skills used in executing BRM, along with advanced activities and strategies that yield meaningful results.


We customize our sessions to meet the individual needs of the person and the goals and culture of the organization. These coaching and training sessions are delivered by experienced BRM professionals who have years of practical experience in the BRM field.


Coaching and training sessions can be scheduled on a 1-1 basis, as a team, or as part of a monthly or quarterly program.

Talent Development Programs

You may be asking yourself once BRMs are trained properly, how do you evolve their skills over time and, crucially, which skills need to be developed?

Using proven methodology, we employ an “assess-develop-evolve” approach to help provide appropriate levels of skills development over time:

  • Assess – Evaluate the skill set of the team before creating a development program. Assess team members’ hard skills and soft skills (e.g., leadership, problem-solving, innovation, accountability) and intangibles (judgment and thought process) using quantitative and qualitative assessments.
  • Develop – Using the assessment results, create and execute a development program tailored to the needs of the team and the individual.
  • Evolve – Reiterate common themes and evaluate BRMs on their specific learning plans; identify skills-based goals for the team; repeat the Assess and Evolve steps on an ongoing basis.
