Linda Allen-Hardisty has made a vibrant career of supporting leaders through organizational transitions and challenges; coaching that she delivers with her trademark no -nonsense, direct and upbeat approach. She is adept at seeing what others may be missing, at peeling back the layers of strategic or performance issues to find the source of the problem. In her experience root causes are almost always related, not to systemic or financial causes but to more human factors.

In her consulting practice, Linda has also designed and implemented strategic changes, worked with boards, executive and management teams and coached leadership on how to align all key organizational players. She enjoys working with the CEOs of large companies as well as small, entrepreneurial businesses, where she coaches leaders on how to shift from working in the business to on it. Linda has helped her leadership clients transform their leadership styles, based on what their corporations’ need, from clarity of vision to change management to engaging with a new breed of millennial managers. She has also worked with teams to leverage their effectiveness through increased communication and coordination.

TEC Group Vision

Linda’s intention is to have her TEC Small Business group be the “go to team” of its members. Together, they will embrace the work of challenging assumptions and perceptions in a safe environment, with an eye to striving for the next level, professionally and personally. “I will help members to identify their unrecognized assets and strengths and then build on them. Confronting themselves and each other whole-heartedly and without judgment is a way for TEC members to step up and into their own development.”


  • Linda lives in Regina, Saskatchewan, and is married to Scott. She is a sports enthusiast, enjoying NFL and CFL football as well as playing tennis and scuba diving. She has been widely involved in her community through volunteering on the boards of the Regina Humane Society and Globe Theatre. She also won the Honouring Our Lifeblood award through her volunteerism with the Canadian Blood Services.
  • Linda begins and ends her day walking with her beloved Irish Wolfhounds, Gracie and Coco, and enjoys spending time with her family, and her many friends.
