BLUE THING #5: Featured Company of the Week

Managing Your Relationships As You Would a Truly Successful Business - Power In Progress, LLC – with Linda Dillard

To our TNNWC family, the following article has a special touch… it is focused on relationships. In this article Linda Dillard explains to those who have been successful in their business relationships how to translate this into successful personal relationships, an area of weakness for many.

Looking for a business consultant/ relationship strategist who will also hold you accountable? How would these credentials sound: Vice President of Education with GNAT Toastmasters, member of the National Association of Professional Women, Certified Entrepreneur (CEO Space graduate 509), member of the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce (New Castle Co., DE) along with being a Certified Compass Life Coach. Her resume contains 10 years in the pharmaceutical industry along with 9 years as a science educator, sought after speaker, relationship strategist, radio talk show host, Founder and CEO of Power In Progress, LLC. Linda Dillard is dedicated to transforming relationships one position at a time. She has developed the ability to assist business people in developing the needed discipline to overcome their egos in order to create greater fulfillment and happiness in relationships, both personal and professional. She knows how to challenge individuals with their existing mindsets in order to assist them in creating needed change.


If those credentials are not enough, Linda is the creator of the CEO Method and founder of the CEO Global Network, which is designed to teach women how to manage their relationships in the same manner as they would their companies. She bases her direction on spiritual laws and principles that she believes transforms relationships from the inside out first by acknowledging that something greater than us is present to guide and empower us.

In her latest book, THE CEO IN YOU: From the Boardroom to the Bedroom, Linda has written a guide on how to take successful business principles, build a system, a process and apply it to one’s personal relationships. Bottom line, she is focused on helping women develop happier, more fulfilling relationships. She believes that “words are the most powerful drug used by mankind.” She believes that if a woman were to see herself as a true CEO in both business and in her personal relationships she will live a much more productive and happier life. A CEO (Chief Executive Officer) is one who is willing to take full responsibility for her life and those she attracts into her experience. Managing one’s relationships with a defined purpose and direction is key to one’s success.

Ms Dillard directs us in understanding the need for a personal vision statement. She explains that this is designed for us to have a focused visualization of who we are, what we want and where we are going. In developing a vision for our life she clarifies that we should equate both our business and personal life as body, mind and spirit. If we do not have these three things clearly defined in our own life we will struggle in our relationships with others. Her point is: How can we help others when we don’t know where we are going ourselves.

In a successful business we define our core values. We use this to attract both the employees and the type of business with which we wish to work. Linda explains in her book how important this is in our personal relationships. She defines this as our gauge by which we measure the potential in a relationship. She points out that by knowing our core values for our company we will be able to discern if an individual will add value to our company. This same principle applies to our personal lives. She suggests that we define at least three core values with which we will not negotiate.

To make the process less complicated Ms Dillard recommends that we find a successful mentor… one who shows accomplishment in both how they deal with business and just as important how they succeed in their personal relationships. A mentor will assist us in defining what we hold most important and show us, through personal example, how they apply their core values. It is through their experiences that we can see more quickly and with greater conviction how it will strengthen our experiences. It is through a mentor that we can more clearly see why it is so important to transfer the same core values that we use to direct us in a successful business to our personal relationships.

The most important part of a business plan, according to Linda, is a clear executive summary. Our executive summary is the first thing the readers of our business plan will see, but it should be the last piece of the business plan we write because it ties the plan together as a synopsis of your business plan. She believes that this is just as important in our personal lives.

The most critical part to our success is who we choose as our board of directors. This is the leadership to whom we answer that gives clear instruction, advice, and guidance to help us stay focused with our direction. It is of utmost importance to recognize the need to have the spiritual component for guidance in our business. It is also so important that our board be in unity on this level because our board will be sincerely invested in our success.

In summary, in her book, THE CEO IN YOU: From the Boardroom to the Bedroom, Linda Dillard explains that we should accept the principles that create a successful business as the same principles that guide us in all of our relationships. The more defined we are in our direction the clearer we are with those to whom we relate. This ultimately leads to a happier more successful life.
