Dynamic Solutions, established in 1995, is led by Susan A. Junda, President and Founder.
Our purpose is to provide exceptional business facilitation, training and coaching services to organizations and companies that truly desire to improve the way they operate and the way that their people work together to get work accomplished.
Susan’s passion is facilitating “group process”. This is demonstrated by assisting businesses in creating a culture where productivity goals are achieved by inspired and creative individuals. Training executives and leaders in how to develop their employees, which is their main purpose, is critical in order to utilize their skills, ideas and talents to further the business goals and objectives of the organization. In addition, training people to work as a team is also critical in today’s fast paced and highly competitive world.
Susan travels nationally and internationally, consulting with and training clients in the areas of strategic planning, project management, leadership/management development and team development. She has worked with over 300 teams, training them to use the tools of project management to develop viable project plans within the team environment – which means developing their “soft skills”. The focus of this work has been in research and development, engineering, IT, manufacturing, transportation/construction and the implementation of strategic initiatives.
When not working with clients, Susan is a seminar leader for The American Management Association, teaching public and on-site sessions in project management and team development. She is also a certified facilitator of the Team Spirit program developed by the Expanded Learning Institute, in Trustworks® developed by the Ken Blanchard Companies, and Model-netics (a Management Development Program) developed by Main Event Management Corporation.
Before starting Dynamic Solutions, Susan worked in commercial industry and government subcontract sectors for 17 years for corporations including Digital Equipment Corporation, Ford Aerospace & Communications and Lockheed Electronics. In her last 7 years in industry, she was a project manager in a hardware engineering and manufacturing new products environment, managing up to five cross-functional teams of people at a time.
Susan holds an MBA in Management and Organization Behavior from the University of Colorado and a B.S. in both Industrial Relations and Decision Science & Computers from Rider University. In addition, she holds the PMP designation (Project Management Professional) from the Project Management Institute, and is a member of the local PMI, ATD (Association of Talen Development), and ICF (International Coaching Federation) chapters.
