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.


  • The largest Medicare hospital in the nation turns to DCG.

    “I have trust and confidence in DCG when seeking ideas on how to progress on our strategic agenda. You always leave me with new thoughts and solutions on how we can do this. The work you did in our seven hospital emergency departments was critical to reducing our door to doctor times from more than 90 minutes to less than 30. This has helped us increase our ED patient visits that in turn have led to increased in-patient volumes. Another thing you have done is help us transform the way each of my locations present their business plans at the annual strategic/budget conference. As a result, we are much clearer in our direction, commitments, accountabilities and actions plans. As a result, we have seen our annual market share grow over 3% the last four years while our competitors have lost market share.” (Florida Hospital Central Region is the largest Medicare hospital system in the USA with 475k patients.)

  • Adventist leaders turn to DCG.

    “You are not the typical consultants. We think of you as part of our hospital family. When we need your help you are always there for us and always have our best interest at the top of all recommendations.”
    Paul BrantleyVice President Leadership Development | Adventist Health System
  • A Leader Transformed by Leadership Frameworks™

    “Tony, your coaching and Frameworks class have changed the way I lead the organization and it has made a dramatic impact on me personally as well as professionally.”
    Beth WeagraffCOO | 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.”
    Marshall TarleyFormerly Director of Leadership Development | ASCAP …and currently a DCG consultant
  • A 20-year logjam broken by DCG.

    “I have been here for more than 20 years and never thought this place would ever change. But it is changing, just as you said it would during our Leadership Frameworks session. Honestly, we have been through the consulting drill so many times I never believed any consultant could change this culture.”
    Dr. MartenAssistant Medical Director, Emergency Dept. | Fish Memorial Hospital
  • DCG transforms patient care by creating a collaborative culture.

    “Working with DCG has given our team the opportunity to learn skills that are allowing us to have meaningful conversations with each other regarding the single most important thing – patient care. They have helped to break down the silos that have kept us from working collaboratively and creatively to provide an exceptional experience for our patients and their families. In addition, they have helped us realize that everything we do and everything we communicate as leaders needs to focus the team around our goals and priorities. 2013 was the first year that we exceeded all of our financial targets and are making significant progress in our patient experience results. Tony, you are a great mentor, coach and friend. Your passion and investment in the success of our team (and in me) has been such a blessing. We are on the verge of greatness and the lessons I have learned from you are helping me be a better leader, wife and mother.”
