The "Land of Oz" has come to stand as a symbol for things not being as they seem. The three authors here, though, go to the basic theme of L. Frank Baum's classic: the trip to see the wizard is a journey of self-awareness and discovery, wherein the characters learn that only they themselves possess the power to fully realize or change their lives. The authors extend the metaphor of Dorothy, the tin man, the scarecrow, and the lion by describing the heart, courage, and wisdom needed to acknowledge, accept, and deal with circumstances and events as they are. The result is a willingness to accept responsibility, which leads to individual (and organizational) accountability. Connors and Smith head Partners in Leadership, a management consulting business that conducts seminars based on the Oz characterizations, and Hickman has written several management books, most recently Mind of a Manager, Soul of a Leader (1990).
