My organization hired Linda Hardenstein for multiple projects since September 2011.  Linda has provided excellent services, including management coaching, creating and facilitating leadership retreats, and developing a career development program.  I found her work to be done in a professional, thorough manner with work products delivered on time.  In addition, she developed excellent working relationships with supervisors and managers during the management coaching sessions. – J. G., Administrative Services Manager, California

Linda was instrumental in the successful design and implementation of our professional training program and our professional development department.  She won the respect and credibility needed to advise and guide associates to achieve performance benchmarks set by the firm and their career goals. – T.G., Chief Human Resources Officer, Washington, D.C.

Thank you for the coaching. I have benefited greatly from it.  The group and individual coaching that you provided has all been very useful, but there are also two sessions that stand out on dealing with supervisors and staff.  You helped me shift my overall perspective, which led to better communication and a favorable outcome.  You have a very good perception of the issues and your advice was very insightful. – B.C., Supervisor, California

Linda and I worked on a variety of projects together and Linda’s understanding of the Principles of Coaching was excellent. I asked Linda to facilitate a critical meeting for the leadership team of one or our major operational locations. Linda did a great job, got rave reviews and made a tremendous difference for the leadership team. I have worked off and on with Linda over the past few years and she is a true Professional Coach.  Linda is also my personal coach.  – C.M., Vice President, California

Linda Hardenstein facilitated a workshop for US Airways Department Managers … Linda was creative, focused, flexible and a consummate professional. I received very favorable feedback from the managers who attended her workshop.  Now six months after the workshop … with improved communication and better understanding of each others roles … the operation realized its best third quarter performance in six years. – T.P. Station Director, North Carolina

In the six months Linda Hardenstein worked with us we implemented two software systems we had been procrastinating on, completed a client satisfaction survey, and launched three programs to give us a competitive edge in the marketplace. – B.B., Real Estate Broker, California

On a historically challenging and contentious issue Linda designed and facilitated a custom Solution Seeking Session™ that re-established trust and provided valuable input for the City Council … She helped us ensure the public was heard and that we achieved the results we were seeking in the time allotted. – T.F. City Manager, California

Linda was the lead staff person responsible for developing a nationwide online legal management system. Her leadership and insight made the project a success. She has a combination of technical savvy and practical leadership that enables her to communicate effectively with IT personnel and meet the needs of end users. – D.S., Attorney, Kansas

Linda Hardenstein facilitated our Strategic Planning session for 2009. She took time to learn about our association and its members and then designed a custom session. Although we had a very ambitious agenda, we started on time, ended on time and all our goals for the day were met! – S.H., CEO, California

Linda thoroughly assessed our needs and custom designed a creative Solution Seeking Session™ that met our objectives. The three-hour session with over 60 participants was peaceful, collaborative, organized and produced solutions that were reflective of both sides. The successful session re-established trust and provided valuable input for decision-makers. Evaluations reflected positive feedback from participants on the process and the results. Linda was well-organized, professional and a pleasure to work with. She helped us ensure that the public was heard. We achieved the results we were seeking in the time allotted.  I highly recommend Linda as a facilitator for community forums, especially for issues needing a calming presence and pragmatic results.”  – C.G., Mayor, California

In one session Linda helped me gain control of unruly personal and business “To-Dos” that were limiting my ability to stay on top of my game. Based on my individual style, she helped me create a system that continues to work for me to this day. – H.B., Business Owner, California

Linda designed a work flow system to eliminate time wasters and focus my days. A big ah-ha was the assessment of my work style. Understanding it gave me permission to work to MY strengths and NOT beat myself up for not doing it like everyone else. It has given me a stronger sense of freedom and competency in my new role as entrepreneur. – A.M., Entrepreneur, California

I highly recommend Linda and her  Overwhelm Bustersseminar. It motivated me to take action to change and remove activities and behaviors that created stress and feelings of being overwhelmed at work and in my personal life. – P.L., Manager, Washington, D.C.
