From the Publisher
Editors Note A decade ago, The Oz Principle took the business world by storm. At its root, the principle works like this: Like Dorothy and the gang in The Wizard of Oz, most businesspeople have the tools to succeed, but when things go wrong they blame circumstance or others instead of looking within for the true cause of unsatisfactory results. Once individuals learn to accept responsibility, they can use the Oz Principle to become better leaders. Now, with corporate scandals in the headlines and the culture of victimization running rampant at every level of the business world, Roger Connors, Tom Smith, and Craig Hickman return with a new edition of The Oz Principle. Fully revised, this edition will update the statistics, concepts, and relevant companies through fresh, timely anecdotes and stories.
Annotation Using symbolism culled from L. Frank Baum's classic THE WIZARD OF OZ, the authors illustrate how many business leaders misuse their assets and then blame others for the ensuing mistakes. Just as Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Lion come to discover that the treasures they so desperately sought were actually with them all along, most managers and employees possess the heart, courage and wisdom to succeed, if they only begin to accept responsibility rather than maneuvering to prepare for failure. The authors use prominent anecdotes from today's business world to demonstrate their claims and outline a concrete plan for increasing accountability and leadership in the office.
