About Adriana Girdler

People ask me all the time what an efficiency officer is and the answer is simple. I help both people and organizations do what they do — better. I’m an entrepreneur, executive coach, professional speaker, facilitator and author. My most recent publications include The Visual Vision Doodle Book and The SparkShift Series. As founder and president of CornerStone Dynamics, I immerse myself into the heart of people I work with, inspecting and assessing every process.Since founding CornerStone Dynamics in 2008, I’ve been cited as Canada’s foremost efficiency expert. I’ve been featured and quoted in radio and online television, newspapers and leading-edge trade magazines. I’m a Huffington Post contributor, have appeared on NewsTalk1010 and SiriusXM’s ‘What She Said’. My expertise is based on years of schooling and real life experiences. I’m a certified Master Black Belt Lean Six Sigma and carry both PMP (Project Management Professional) and CET (Certified Engineering Technologist) designations. In June 2015, I completed my training to be a Healing Touch Practitioner (HTI-P).

About Mike Girdler

I’m a business efficiency devotee. I love the processes, I love the disciplines, and I love the tools and techniques.  Most of all, I love the results. Specifically, seeing organizations address inefficiencies and productivity gaps to get rid of waste, reduce fire-fighting, become more productive and profitable, all while enjoying the ride.Throughout my career, I’ve invested deeply into projects involving sales, marketing, training and development, continuing education, and communications environments. I combine this extensive experience with a Project Management Professional (PMP) designation, Lean Six-Sigma certification, and a personal philosophy of “customer first” service to ensure the smooth running of projects and programs.When I’m not involved with our client’s business efficiency efforts, my life is consumed by distance running, music and my wife and two kids – not necessarily in that order.
