9780130321299: The Oz Principle: A Program for Individual and Organizational Responsibility

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. 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.

From the Author:

Here's what people are saying about The Oz Principle:
"It will help you approach any new idea or problem and impact your ability to be successful...The Oz Principle hit the punch line early and then supported it. It introduces a global concept right away, and then the components of each chapter gives you a better understanding of that global concept...After our client's re-organization, we had the worst month we've ever had leading into January (typically a low recruiting month in our industry) we required everyone to submit an Accountability Plan and we beat our projected hires by 20%. A direct result of implementing The Oz Principle in our organization." - Mark Wortley, President, Beverly Care Alliance

"The Oz Principle has really made accountability very easy to understand and has improved our effectiveness in obvious ways. Our entire organization has not only embraced the concept, but has also made it our culture to operate Above The Line. Most importantly, The Oz Principle has made it very easy ! ! for a new representative joining the organization to quickly understand what Pfizer Pratt Pharmaceuticals is all about, both in terms of our culture and how we operate as a group." - Dick Reggio, Vice President of Sales, Pratt Pharmaceuticals, A Division of Pfizer Inc.

"The Oz Principle is very easy reading, practical in its content. The message is so straightforward that it is many times overlooked...We are totally accountable for making things happen. It was extremely well received." - David Grimes, Vice President, Sales, AT&T

"The concepts in the book are practical and are the things we are living day-to-day. It is well written; in plain talk like a face-to-face discussion. Less theory and more examples and approaches that are immediately usable. We have applied The Oz Principle concepts and empowered the people in our whole facility towards the objectives we need to accomplish. The concepts have really served as a motivation tool and clos! ! ed the gap between management and the line workers." -! Vincente Trellis, Vice President, Surgical Operations, Allergan

"Our success rests in our strong culture developed over the years. Our recent addition of new cultural language i.e.: 'Above The Line, Below The Line' from The Oz Principle Accountability Training, has enabled our company to be more aligned and riveted us on the targeted results." - Richard Methany, Director Human Resources, Friday's Hospitality Worldwide

"The Oz Principle eloquently captures the secret to overcoming obstacles and achieving success. It is filled with practical insights essential to the personal and organizational journey of getting results. The book explains an enduring principle that will long outlive the supposed wizardy of the many management fads that melt away with time. I would personally recommend this book to everyone who has tired of wizards and who is anxious to get results." - Dorothy Browning of Kansas

"All year long we struggled to show some increas! ! e in store sales with no real success. However, after applying The Oz Principle Accountability Training, store sales climbed and continued to climb for the next eleven weeks thereafter. Numerous obstacles presented themselves throughout the year, but the team remained 'Above The Line' and nailed our year end budget." - Kenneth White, Regional Vice President, Smith's Food and Drug

"We tried for several years to make some basic changes in our Global Manufacturing Group and just couldn't get there. We finally internalized the concept of the accountability process as defined in The Oz Principle. It has really turned us around in the direction we wanted and we're now making progress we've been trying to make for years." - Bill Smith, Executive Director, Global Manufacturing Services, Eli Lilly

"The Oz Principle unlocks your potential and can change your life. It can make you think differently about the way you approach your personal and your professiona! ! l life. The language is easily adopted and you really can ! identify with some of the stories and see where their point is best made. The philosophies are easy to adopt, and if you believe and you really listen to the points that are made, you will change your behaviors." - Kelli Fitten, Director of Human Resources, Brinker International, On the Border Cafes division

"The Oz Principle Training is making a difference in my life! I didn't even wait to get home, I made a call from the bus station to request an appointment and to move from the'wait and see' mode to 'Do It.' Thanks for implementing a great program/principle." - Sales Representative, Pratt Pharmaceuticals, A Division of Pfizer Inc.

"It has made a lasting impression on my career, and in my personal life. The Oz Principle has made a very positive impact on the way I try to interact with individuals and deal with myself and my interactions, both professionally and personally." - Dennis Antinori, Regional Vice President Sales, Guidant Corporation! !

"The Oz Principle Accountability Training is a wonderful, incredibly valuable resource. It provided the answers I sought as I strived to meet the challenge of meshing a systems approach (to quality and management) with individual responsibility and accountability." - Beth Tolley, Administrator, Presbyterian Hospital
