Donato J. Tramuto will discuss a new book at Ogunquit Playhouse ME
OGUNQUIT – The Ogunquit Playhouse features CEO, entrepreneur, innovator and philanthropist Donato J. Tramuto with author Tami Booth Corwin and their exciting new book, “The Double Bottom Line: How Compassionate Leaders Captivate Hearts and Deliver Results” on Sunday August 18. 9 p.m. to 7 p.m.
In 2019, the TramutoPorter Foundation and the Ogunquit Playhouse Human Rights Partnership were formed, with the goal of eliminating social isolation and loneliness among aging adults. The new book examines the need for compassion, empathy and humanity in the workplace.
Held at the historic Ogunquit Playhouse at 10 Main Street, Ogunquit, ME, the authors’ presentation will be followed by a conversation with Bangor School District Guidance Director Dr. Adam Leach and other panelists, a question and answer session for the public and a book signing.
“The Double Bottom Line” shares original research with 1,500 working Americans and in-depth interviews with 40 successful leaders who practice compassionate leadership. Tramuto’s research revealed a lack of compassionate leadership – leaders express support for compassionate practices, but most workers do not perceive their leaders as practicing compassionate leadership adequately, if at all. Tramuto offers proven strategies to close this compassionate leadership gap and drive results. Filled with inspiring stories and real-world examples of successful, high-profile employers, “The Double Bottom Line” defines a new model of leadership and examines how to cultivate more compassionate people.
Recognized by The New York Times as a global health activist, Tramuto is the former CEO of Tivity Health and founder of the TramutoPorter Foundation and eHealth Villages. He has nearly four decades of experience in corporate leadership and stands out above all for his ability to balance transactional and transformational leadership within organizations. Tramuto has launched two successful start-ups, led the turnaround of a public healthcare company, and executed innovative programs leading to lasting business results through its compassionate leadership approach. He received the prestigious Robert F. Kennedy Ripple of Hope Award in 2014 and the Robert F. Kennedy Embracing His Legacy Award in 2017.
