"I didn't have time." "It's not in my job description." Many people and organizations have recognized the need to move away from this type of "blame game" and toward greater personal accountability at work, but few have known how to foster or maintain it -- until The Oz Principle.
Now in paperback, The Oz Principle explores how people in business suffer from the same feelings of anxiety and helplessness that beset the characters in The Wizard of Oz.
Through a broad mix of examples and stories, this book examines how people use their victimization to justify inaction, excuse ineffectiveness, and rationalize poor performance.
It shows how to break through "above the line" with an attitude of accountability that empowers employees to overcome problems, excuses, and biases, to achieve enviable results.
Self-assessment charts and quizzes enable readers to chart their own path to personal empowerment and enhanced company performance.
Working through this book is a true journey of discovery, to learn that, just as in The Wizard of Oz, the real Wizard lives within each of us.
