Diakonissestiftelsen Reference

Pernille Hippe Brun has held the position as my personal coach since 2010. Our initial cooperation was during my position as COO of the Health and Care Administration in Copenhagen Municipality during the period of 2010 to 2012. My position as COO comprised leadership of 11.000 employees and the responsibility of services in relation to elder care, rehabilitation, specialized nursing and prevention for citizens in Copenhagen. My reference was to the major and politicians in the Health and Care Committee.
The cooperation with Pernille Hippe Brun continued during my shift to my actual position in June 2012 as CEO of Diakonissestiftelsen, a private non-profit fond, with 400 employees and a business revenue of 250 million DK KR. Diakonissestiftelsen has a wide range of services in collaboration with municipalities, regions, private and public companies.
The scope of the coaching has been both personal development and strategy development. Pernille Hippe Bruns competences are highly recognized and have a consistent focus on change with impact, and crafting business possibilities and opportunities that get implemented.
She addresses leadership preferences and competences in order to reach an awareness and understanding that enables passion and personal responsibility for creating impact. In a very sustainable way the program emphasizes mutual commitment to creating impact and ability to carefully adapt best-practice solutions to match the capabilities and unique challenges of people and scope of the organization. I have found it very satisfying that the scope of the coaching is not a burning platform, rather the assumption that changes should support our overall goal as an organization. In a very inspirational way Pernille Hippe Brun combines focus on bridging strategy and execution, thinking and doing and analysis and innovation. By providing relevant tools she consistently emphasizes focus on innovating and responding to changing conditions as a way for organizations to discover new opportunities.
I highly recommend Pernille Hippe Brun for leadership development as well as for organizational development.
