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.

Testimonials

  • 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.”

  • CEO of 1200-bed hospital with nine thousand employees credits DCG for its progress.

    “DCG made a big impact on the Orlando campus. I am clear that the progress we are making is in large part due to the work we have been doing together.”
    David BanksCEO | Florida Hospital South
  • 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
  • DCG creates a Three Day Miracle

    “After seeing the anger, frustration, and stress that my nurses expressed on the first day of their Grass Roots Workshop and then seeing the results you helped them produce over the last 5 weeks, the three-day workshop is truly a ‘Three Day Miracle.’ All of my Nurse Practice Councils will be going through your workshop.”
    Connie HamiltonSenior VP /CNO | Florida Hospital (20,000 employees / 8 Locations)
  • Holiday Inn in Binghamton, NY dares to raise prices.

    “I knew I had poor morale, lack of initiative, and a pervasive attitude that anything that went wrong was somebody else’s problem and this led to unhappy guests, one of which was Tony Dottino. Tony taught me how to get the staff to buy into my goals and then trust that if they spoke to me with candor and had suggestions for improvements no one would be punished. As a result, the hotel’s revenue increased by 35%, hotel occupancy increased by 13%, and customer satisfaction has put us into the top 10.  And we even dared to raise our prices in a tough competitive market.”
    Candace Jones General Manager | Holiday Inn | Binghamton, NY
  • 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!”
