THE AWARD FOR RELATIONSHIP MASTERY

CARMA stands for the Corporate Alliance Relationship Mastery Award. Every year, our members nominate each other for living our values.

CELEBRATING EXCELLENCE

Once a year, members reflect on those who have made the biggest impact in their lives. They nominate each other and vote on those who have exemplified the values we hold dear. Being nominated for the CARMA award is the highest honor members can pay one another.

We care deeply about our culture and love to celebrate and honor those who have truly served our other members. Our organization is as strong as it is because our members are truly amazing people.

We teach several keys to Relationship Success. In our culture, we teach members to:

  • Avoid Relationship Arrogance: avoid judging a potential relationship based on a forecasted return
  • Develop Relationships “Just Because”
  • Learn, Serve, Grow: the cycle of building real relationships
  • Exit the Coliseum: leave behind a “gladiator” mentality and embrace teamwork
  • Decide to Govern: make the success of others one’s highest priority
