SL:  Tell me a little bit about CornerStone Dynamics and how you got started

AG: At Cornerstone Dynamics we are all about business efficiency. We have developed a proven system that allows us to examine the ways that individuals and organizations work and streamline their efforts to make them more efficient and allow them to work smarter not harder.

Prior to founding Cornerstone Dynamics, I had the luxury of working for some great, global organizations and I had the opportunity to develop a very solid, “efficiency-centric” skill set. In 2008, I made the strategic decision to combine this knowledge base with my true passion for helping individuals and organizations make positive, efficient changes, and voila, Cornerstone Dynamics was born.

SL: What are some of the benefits people can gain from using your company’s services?

AG: At Cornerstone Dynamics we adopt a partnership approach to understand each of our client’s unique needs. We draw upon a service portfolio that integrates efficiency management, project management, strategic guidance and facilitation, educational seminars, and key note speaking experience to create a specialized response that provides our clients with the benefits of increased efficiency, productivity, and ultimately, profitability.

SL: What do you find the most inspirational?

AG:  My inspiration comes from seeing satisfied clients. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the smile on the face of my client and the individuals within the organization. We’ve made a difference in their lives. We’ve provided something that makes their personal and professional lives more efficient, productive, and ultimately, we’ve made them happier. That’s what I love-That’s why I do this.

SL: What’s the best piece of advice you would give someone looking to get into your industry?

AG: My advice to be successful is this industry is to believe in what you are doing, develop the right skill set, and remember-it’s all about being flexible and delivering solutions that allow your clients to be more efficient.
