In the summer of 2010 I read Pernilles book: Strength based leadership. Building on and expanding the principles of appreciative inquiry in a very easy to understand and easy to implement way – I knew that I just had to learn more. So I contacted Pernille and I got help to discover more within the leadership field and also within myself. I have had Pernille to do seminars and training within my management group and department. Pernille is excellent at putting a meaningful and ambitious program together – but also to be open to opportunities coming up – and changing the program appropriately to get more out of the moment. On a small island in Denmark we experienced a great seminar on “presence and authenticity” in leadership with vice-presidents, department managers and team leaders where Pernille and her colleagues held us breath taken with training and exercises, which my colleagues still refers to and use today. They were easy to implement and helped us in terms of making wiser decisions and being more present back in our day-to-day reality in the organization. During the last six years I have also used Pernille as a personal coach. Pernille is great at listening and challenging me in different situations. In different challenging situations in my career and life, she has been able to influence me to get more out of life and myself. Whether it has been thinking in an alternative angle on a difficult situation … or introducing and applying a new tool to help me being the best version of myself. The tools are still an important part of my life in terms of getting more out of life as department manager, colleague, father and husband. If you are looking for a strategic oriented coach, consultant or advisor, with the heart in the right place, Pernille is the right person.
