CELEBRATE LEADERS TO AMPLIFY IMPACT |
AT A GLANCE
As Interim CEO of Horizon West Infrastructure Fund, Linda set the tone, vision and culture of the company.
She focused on building the leadership team, being the main point of communication between the Board of Directors and corporate operations, and was the public face of the company during this exciting start-up phase to launch the company.
Known to leaders as someone to access for “the tools you need to succeed”, Linda founded Allen-Hardisty Consulting and Coaching ten years ago.
"I coach my clients to proactively grow. I believe that they can step up and into their own development when they partner with me in a coaching relationship.”
Linda Allen-Hardisty has built a reputation as a vibrant, contemporary voice in the business world by blending her grounding in the field of organizational effectiveness with a practical approach to solving problems based on professional, real-world experience. Over a 15-year career, she is an experienced leader and works with leaders - from corporate executives to entrepreneurs - to improve their success.
With an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Regina and a certificate in Organizational Development from Queens IRC, Linda helps organizations achieve by enhancing the effectiveness of their leaders and teams.
Her industry experience includes: Oil & gas, IT, utilities, post-secondary, tourism, ICT, financial services, municipal government, creative industries, and SMB. She is a chair at The Executive Committee (TEC) Canada, a certified leadership and executive coach, and was Interim CEO of Horizon West Infrastructure Fund. Linda is also a Queens University IRC workshop facilitator and a contributing member of Forbes Coaches Council.
Prior to private practice, Linda’s corporate leadership experience included the role of Director of Organizational Development in a company listed on the Hewitt Top 50 Employers in Canada, and becoming the first Manager of Strategy and Performance for a municipal government undertaking cultural transformation.
Linda volunteers on the Board of Directors for the Youth Ballet of Saskatchewan and enjoys contributing to the strength and stability of the arts across her province.
Linda's Leadership Pillars
In 2019 and onward, Linda’s aspirations are dual-focus:
- To grow, endorse and challenge more CEO's in her The Executive Committee (TEC) Canada groups and the leaders she coaches;
- Also, Linda wants to lead more companies through their initial phase of re-imagining.
In the long run, Linda’s end game is to influence a positive world for her nieces, nephew and all of the kids in her life - they are watching!
Linda is a powerful leader with the utmost passion for coaching and development. Her integrity and consistent desire for excellence have driven her to instill trust and respect in her community.
She is one of TEC Canada’s Red Shoe Award recipients, which is presented to a Chair who steps outside the box, is bold, innovative, creative and pushes the boundaries.
Linda’s resolute leadership skills and strategic focus effectively shape her members’ futures. She inspires others through her engagement and dedicated performance.
I am very honoured to have Linda as a TEC Canada Chair in our TEC community and am proud to call her a colleague.
