Meet Susan Berg, PhD
Her career-long focus on mastering change has won praise from Fortune 500 giants and renowned humanitarian non-profits alike. This same ability also helps guide individuals through the minefield of 21st Century pressures.
Call her a transition expert. An award-winning international speaker, facilitator, and author of Choose on Purpose for Twentysomethings, Susan Berg brings real world experience and solutions to the issues facing people today.
Berg earned her Ph.D. in Adult Education from the University of California, Los Angeles, her MA from Northwestern University and her BA Cum Laude from Miami University in Ohio. Initially an educator and school administrator in California and Texas, she honed her focus on designing strategic change projects.
Those skills transferred perfectly to her more than dozen years at Unisys Corporation. There she was awarded the prestigious Chairman’s Innovation Award for implementing new teamwork practices for the demands of the 21st century.
Today, Susan Berg manages Compass Associates, providing businesses with transition advising. And she has founded the Choose on Purpose Network—supporting people to stay resilient and make good life decisions. She is also Adjunct Professor of Organizational Development and Leadership at St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia.
Not surprisingly, Susan is the mother of two thriving young adult children. This experience, coupled with her know-how in change management, drives her passion for working with people in transition—anyone who is willing to be a beginner and make a bold move.
