Janelle Brittain’s expertise is in guiding company’s leadership to grow to their next level, so the company can grow to its potential. She helps executives through the “tough stuff” of leadership, whether it is gaining control of the leadership team, merger, growth or downsizing.

She took the lessons she learned in 20 years of working for “others,” such as Xerox and Control Data and applied them to her own company which she founded in 1989. She quickly discovered that being an entrepreneur involves many different skills and risks, than working for others. By conquering these challenges, she has built a company with 2 major divisions:

The Dynamic Performance Institute, LLC which delivers training, speaking and consulting to large companies across the U.S. and in 6 other countries

And the Dynamic Solutions Group, which delivers consulting and training to small and mid-sized companies. For her strategies in founding DSG, she received the New Venture Award from the National Association Of Women Business Owners- Chicago Chapter.

As an internationally known consultant, trainer, speaker and executive coach, she has helped Fortune 100 companies as well as hot entrepreneurial companies in realistic strategic leadership, management development, team building, and managing corporate change.

Janelle holds an Executive MBA and the prestigious Certified Speaking Professional designation. The CSP is the highest earned certification bestowed by the National Speakers Association (only 400 speakers worldwide have been able to achieve it).

Janelle is the author of six published business books. Her last two books are, "Star Team Dynamics" and "How to Say It: Performance Reviews. Business publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Investor’s Business Daily and Crain’s Business Chicago frequently seek Janelle’s insights.

As Executive Coaching Manager for Boardroom Bound, she coaches women and minorities how to advance to corporate boards. She is also a Boardroom Bound Chicago Friend. She believes that helping women advance to corporate board positions is breaking through the next glass ceiling.
