Overview

The Oz Principle: Getting Results Through Inividual and Organizational Accountability by Roger Connors, Craig Hickman, Craig R. Hickman, Tom Smith

"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.

Connors and Smith capture the powerful potential of personal and organizational accountability as a key and vital lever to sustain continuous improvement. The simple definitions, language and 'best practices' are easy to understand and apply. As a result of this book our performance has improved and we have a lot less 'below the line' behaviors impeding our progression.

Our global company has been using Mr. Connors' book for several months now in our sales force and we are impressed with the results. The book points the reader to self-accountability for his/her actions and it also provides a guide to accomplishing great results when working with others. It is refreshing and well-needed throughout the workforce.

This would be a great book for the person in charge of a company, or the person with subordinates... however as a proud member of the working class I found this book insulting. The authors make an effort to 'sell' the concept that the even the lowest level worker benefits from these principles. In the perfect workplace, maybe they would benefit, but in the real world of egos, competition and low wages the working class is there to benefit the leaders. When the authors make a new principle for entry-level workers and the middle class I'll try reading that!
