Adriana Girdler, CET, PMP

President, Chief Efficiency Officer

I’m passionate about improvement and efficiency, in both people and organizations. I feel blessed to be doing what I love! Now, how may I help you?

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 a productivity specialist, project manager, entrepreneur, professional speaker, facilitator, visioning wizard, and author. Recent publications include The Visual Vision Statement Workbook – personal edition, The Visual Vision Statement Workbook – business edition, Efficiency Matters, and The SparkShift Series. As president of CornerStone Dynamics, I immerse myself into the heart of people I work with, inspecting and assessing every process. Our clients are amazing, have a look at this impressive list of clients we get to work with.

Since founding CornerStone Dynamics in 2008, I’ve been cited as Canada’s foremost business productivity expert. I’ve been featured and quoted in radio and television, newspapers and leading-edge trade magazines. I’m a TedX speaker, Huff Post and Thrive Global contributor. I’ve appeared on Global, CBC, CTV, CHCH, 680News Radio, Newstalk 1010, Sirius XM and been published in The Globe and Mail and numerous industry magazines. Check out my CornerStone Dynamics blog, which is ranked one of the top 200 leadership blogs on the web.

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. I completed my Foundations of Applied Mindfulness Certification at the University of Toronto in July 2017, and am en route towards completing the internationally acclaimed Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program, developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Center for Mindfulness, University of Massachusetts Medical School. In June 2015, I completed my healing touch certificate program (HTI-P) and am member of Healing Beyond Borders, a non-profit organization for healing touch.

I’m passionate about improvement and efficiency, in both people and organizations. I feel blessed to be doing what I love! Now, how may I help you?
