What If Every Member of Your Organization Was 100% Invested In Its Success?

What Would Be Possible?

Imagine if everyone on your team had the potential for limitless creativity, confidence, effectiveness, and efficiency. Now imagine they were unable to access even a fraction of this power.

It might be time to give your organization another look.

Did you know that…?

    • Front line employees spend more than a third of their time at work dealing with obstacles rather than driving success
    • Most employees are not equipped to distinguish obstacle-based work from growth-based work.
    • Nearly a quarter of people involved in a project at any given time think it is doomed to fail from the start and still never speak up about it.

It’s a recipe for stagnation.

Yet most organizational development programs do little to address this. While the bulk of consultants give executives and managers insights and analysis, these findings fall short when applied to the high-pressure realities of your business. Traditional training programs bury workers with new skills, but without reinforcement. As such, old habits tend to pop right back up in the heat of any given workday.

At Dottino Consulting Group, we take a different approach. We operate in the space where leadership and front-line work intersects. Our programs are based around the idea that productivity, proactivity, and profits come from establishing the environment senior executives envision and then inspiring the front line to carry it out.

Is it easy? Absolutely not. But we have the power of nature’s most powerful machine on our side…the human brain.

Our Leadership Workshops

Leadership Frameworks™

In this program, we alternate theoretical leadership training with practical implementation. The workshop is conducted in three sections, interspersed with takeaways that are applied on the job. It enables leaders to more effectively engage frontline workers to achieve breakthrough results. When used properly it will always guide you to the best decisions possible. It’s learning-by-doing multiplied one hundredfold.

Grass Roots Innovation™

With this program, front-line team members acquire all the cognitive tools they need to innovate, create, and implement change, under your leadership. We work with them to feel utterly confident to execute at the highest level…on their own, while we work with you to lead this change paradigm. We stay available to ensure that leadership and frontline regularly exceed every success metric you’ve set. Turnover plummets. Frustration is alleviated. Burnout becomes a thing of the past.


  • DCG transforms Doctor’s life.

    “My wife cannot believe the changes in me. I get home for dinner, eat with the kids, am not stressed and take time to help the kids with their schoolwork. You have given me my life back. Every physician in the hospital should be made to attend your Grass Roots Innovation workshop.”
    Dr. Paul Medical Director, Emergency Dept. | Florida Hospital
  • GRI projects just keep on delivering for ASCAP.

    “The one thing that's so gratifying about the GRI (Grass Roots Workshop) is that when I go from department to department reviewing operations in ASCAP and comment on the meaningful innovation made by staff or management, they inevitably say to me. ‘Don't you remember, that was a Grass Roots project?’ I have studied a number of improvement techniques but continue to be amazed at the simplicity of GRI and how incredibly powerful and life-changing the results continue to be for the graduates. This is one workshop that continues to deliver sustained results. And the bottom line numbers are well over $2 million in benefits.”

  • Grass Roots Teams saves International Transportation company millions.

    “The GRI workshop is exactly what we needed in our company. I knew from my travels that the frontline employees had great ideas. What was needed was a pragmatic approach that would help them have the confidence to speak with upper management and give them the facts. In Europe alone, the teams have saved more than $1.2 million dollars – and we can add South Africa and the US to it, which gives us more than $2 million in measured benefits within the first year. What I like most about this work is you are giving our frontline employees reusable skills that will serve as the vehicle for transforming our culture and bringing sustainable results. I think of it as an annuity of annual benefits.”
    Ron GlickmanFormer CIO and Exec for Quality | UTi
  • Inspired DCG graduates save the OR $500,000 and become the top OR.

    “The Grass Roots workshop has so inspired the frontline that in the last eight months they have implemented a series of improvement projects that have resulted in saving surgical operations more than $500,000 in supplies – and we have just gotten started. When you started your work with us we were close to the bottom. In December we were recognized by our corporate office as the top performing operating room (out of 44 total).”
    NancyDirector of Surgical Services | Fish Memorial Hospital | Orange City, Florida
  • DCG helps British Airways identify new revenue channels worth $1B over seven years.

    “DCG has helped bring British Airways through one of the most difficult times in our company history. Your work with our sales regions in the USA has resulted in more than $1B in new revenue over the last 7 years. Not sure we would have survived without your workshops that brought new skills to the USA sales team that have dramatically impacted how they work.”
    Jim KalinowskiFormer Director Marketing | British Airways
  • The DCG Difference

    “On several occasions two years ago I had come to this emergency room as a patient and was treated very badly. When I found out today that I needed to come to this hospital, I dreaded coming back. The only reason I came back, was because this is where my Dr. instructed me to return. From the minute I came into the ED, the staff seemed caring—far different than in the past. They smiled and were concerned. My nurse explained what was happening and I felt confident that she would take good care of me. She even asked about my children and family, creating a more personal level and putting me at ease. I will never dread coming here again. THINGS HAVE REALLY CHANGED!”
