Meet Linda Spence...

After a number of years leading a Human Resources department, Linda co-founded a boutique Consulting Firm and provided human resources consulting primarily to the Not-For-Profit sector in Ontario. Over the years she has also become more and more active in leadership development – designing/delivering leadership programs, coaching/consulting with leaders as they navigate complex employee situations. Linda studied business with the Ivey School of Business at Western University.

Linda conducted investigations of harassment and worked with teams to improve dynamics. She has hired and fired hundreds of employees, and everything in between. Linda’s work has afforded her an opportunity to look at work from the eyes of the leader, and the eyes of the worker/team member. All too often blame flies in both directions. This unique perspective equips her to help employees to see their own performance from their supervisor’s eyes. As a speaker, Linda helps people in developing their sense of personal leadership and accountability, and to better understand the context and dynamics of the workplace. She is determined to help people stay “out of the muck” at work, and to tap into their own unique inner self to ensure fulfillment at work and life.

Ask yourself, am I in the muck?”

Writer, Upcoming Author

Linda is on an exciting journey, condensing her life’s work into the writing of a book about “Killing It” at work. She is interviewing people who are “killing it” in their roles at work, as research for the book. Are you, or someone you know experiencing high levels of success and joy in all aspects of your work? Do you have insights, thoughts, perspectives, stories that you would like to share? Reach out to Linda and perhaps you will be her next interview.

“Having the ability to work with Linda was valuable in so many ways. Leadership in a post-secondary environment offers exciting opportunities and many challenges. Linda offered a perfect combination of empathy and insight and allowed me to find new approaches to challenges arising. Coaching with Linda has enabled me to gain fresh perspectives, expand my leadership toolkit and find new and better ways to address challenges and create a positive environment for our team, students and colleagues.”
