    1. Teji says:

      This book takes a single point (and a mis-coined one at that): "be accountable--and by accountable we mean be responsible" and beats it to death, resurrects it, and then beats it some more.The authors acknowledge the dictionary definition of accountability and then redefine accountability as "a personal choice to rise above one's circumstances and demonstrate the ownership necessary for achieving desired results--to See It, Own It, Solve It, and Do It." p47. Somehow, I don't see that definition [...]

    2. Arthur Meursault says:

      Condescending shit. I was forced to read this book because my company forced us to read - creating a horseshit culture of condescension and lying.The book uses the motif of The Wizard of Oz to make crappy management points that help provide spineless middle managers with a new arsenal of meaningless buzzzzzwords (the zzz's are intentional).Going by this rule, anything could be used as a management tool. Have you ever seen Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom? Indy's whip symbolises how employees [...]

    3. Dante says:

      "Take responsibility for your actions". There, I saved you slogging through that. Well I guess there were some amusing real life anecdotes, but the Wizard of Oz analogy did not work for me at all.

    4. Stasha says:

      What more can I do to rise above my situation? Have I done all I can to solve the problem? If someone else were brought in to deal with this issue, how would they approach it? Did I follow my solution plan? Do I have to adjust it? Why am I making the adjustment? Page 210 really helped me realize that I have wasted time at my current job and should have been out looking years ago. I am responsible for staying in a situation which allows others to victimize me. So where to go from here? Out as qui [...]

    5. Jeff says:

      loved it teaches accountibility in the work place and the value of plain ol' getting things done

    6. Teri Temme says:

      "What else can we do?" INDEED! Accountability. Such a great word! And sometimes it really happens From David Schlotterbeck:"People in the organization owned their circumstances, established their own targets, and made the improvements; and that without me paying any attention to it. This is simply the result of their being more accountable, going at this in a very teamwork oriented fashion, and give each other a lot of feedback on what we needed to change."

    7. Marsha says:

      I really liked this book. The premise was strong and the examples were meaningful. I like the questions at the end of each chapter and there was clear guidance as to how to use the principles taught.

    8. Vincent Darlage says:

      The Oz Principle offers advice on how to be more accountable in one’s life. The book is divided into three major sections.Part I: This is an overview of the path toward accountability, a yellow-brick road, if you will. This section divides accountability from victimization by a line. Being accountable is above the line, and taking the victim role is below the line.Part II: This part develops the steps above the line to full accountability, emphasizing the characters met upon the yellow-brick r [...]

    9. Joe Robles says:

      I agree with much of what this book says, but think the presentation was poor. I despise the use of the term, "victim" or "victim mentality". That phrase reeks of early 80-90s Republican mentality. I do believe in personal responsibility and think, especially in work, that one should always ask, "what can we do," rather than, "who can we blame?" A while back I realized that anything that goes wrong in my department is my responsibility. Even if it is someone else who actually made the mistake. E [...]

    10. Jessica Jang says:

      Asking someone else to tell you what to do represents nothing more than an advanced for of excuse making because it stems from the victim’s desire to prepare his or her excuse before ever taking action.Never make excuses. *Joint accountability! “If this company is to achieve it’s goals, we have got to become boundaryless. Boundaries are crazy. The union is just another boundary, an dyou have to reach across the same way you want to reach across the boundaries separating you from your custo [...]

    11. Lorraine says:

      Basic premise: don't be a victim but take hold of your situation and ask what you can do to improve it. I'm not sure the book adds a whole lot of detail beyond that simple statement, but it pretends to. Lots of vague examples of companies and business people who were sinking then choose to stop complaining and start fixing and "voila!" their business turned around. Each section begins with a quote from Frank L. Baum's book The Wizard of Oz to illustrate that just like Dorothy, The Scarecrow, the [...]

    12. Randall Merriott says:

      I listened to the audio version of the book. I was two-thirds of the way through and thought we were coming to the conclusion, and then heard, "next, in part three" REALLY??This book is tiresome and never seems to get to the bottom line. The Wizard of Oz comparisons are really lame, too. The jargon used in the book, Above the Line, Below the Line, etc. got on my nerves after awhile, too.I found very little in the book that I could apply to me personally or to my small business that has five empl [...]

    13. John says:

      I'm not usually big on business books. I often find that they try to push their "bigger-better idea" over common sense. This book, The Oz Principle, seems to push common sense over the bigger-better deal. It realizes that by depending on someone else's methodology to get results, one basically enables a new scapegoat when it fails. Instead, this book says to throw out the scapegoat, stop whining and realize personal accountability AND potential - and that combination is important. This is one of [...]

    14. Walt says:

      The message was right, just spent too much time explaining "why" over and over and less time on "how".

    15. Bob Wallner says:

      So I'm being asked in this review pane "What did you think?"What I think is Why didn’t I read this sooner? I hear much too often we need to “hold people accountable” or “who is accountable for that” but what is accountability and what simply blame? Why is the person who is asking the question, never the one accountable? The authors of the Oz Principle use L. Frank Baum’s classic Oz Chronicles as the metaphor for personal accountability. First part of the book, the authors spend time [...]

    16. A.R. Beckert says:

      Not a bad read!I felt like a lot of the ideas here really resonated with my religious beliefs, so it was highly encouraging to see these principles applied in a secular setting.I know we all have a lot to learn when it comes to seeking results in the areas that challenge us most, and I appreciated how Conners emphasizes that dropping "Below the Line" is both human nature and unavoidable. "Above the Line" thinking, like living perfectly, is ideal but not our default setting as flawed human beings [...]

    17. Maria says:

      I like the basic premise of this book - don't play the blame game, keep things positive, have ownership and accountability in your life. The book feels dated and they spend a lot of time making it seem like people should put up with poor treatment because maybe they overlooked a detail or didn't get something in writing. At the end they managed to talk about managers treating employees well and how to speak effectively to your staff, but it just felt like feelings and personal opinions were not [...]

    18. Devin says:

      Accountability - A personal choice to rise above one's circumstances and demonstrate the ownership necessary for achieving desired results - to See It, Own It, Solve It, and Do It.This definition presents the backbone of The Oz Principle's philosophy which Roger Connors follows through to unpack. This book presents the fix to feelings of grumbling and victimization that we feel as employees, leaders, and other circumstances in which we pursue a desired outcome of some sort.The approach laid out [...]

    19. Michael Scibetta says:

      This is the "principal" managers at my workplace always refer to. I thought it'd be a good idea to actually read the book (I'm not sure how many of our managers actually have). Honestly I expected it to be awful and cheesy. While I wasn't totally wrong about the cheesy part (I mean they're using Wizard of Oz characters to explain the principal) I was very wrong about the awful part. This book has a fantastic foundational message of being more accountable across the board. Even if the issue truly [...]

    20. Laurie Sullivan says:

      This was an interesting, thought-provoking book that I would recommend to anyone. "See it. Own it. Solve it. Do it." Basically, how we can benefit from a greater sense of accountability - that it empowers us and helps us to think more creatively about options and solutions. If you listen to the Audible version, you can download supplemental materials, including the self-assessments, from the Audible Web page. However, if I were to do it over, I would select a written version since it would be ea [...]

    21. Cigno says:

      In short, what does "personal accountability" look like in the context of the workplace? This book is sure to challenge readers on a personal level, to look beyond circumstances and ask yourself, what can I do to change the situation? The authors spell out step by step guidelines on how to implement their strategy of "See It, Own It, Solve It, Do It" both on a personal level as well as on a team level. The tie-in to Baum's "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" is creative in that it helps the reader memo [...]

    22. Lindsey Orlando says:

      I like the message of accountability, but I couldn't stand the delivery of this book: very redundant, and feels patronizing because it approaches the topic as though it's revolutionary when it's common sense.

    23. Sorento62 says:

      Mostly old and obvious exhortations to take personal responsibility for results. There was one chapter out of ten that was of value to me.

    24. Susan Gillham says:

      Follow the Yellow Brick Road

    25. Rodney G Mogen says:

      While the concept is simple and overused, accountability is one thing we do not always have and the tools are given to build it

    26. Daniel Silvert says:

      What is your definition of ‘accountability?’ For authors Connors, Smith, and Hickman accountability is “a personal choice to rise above one’s circumstances and demonstrate the ownership necessary to achieve desired results.” Sounds straight forward enough right? The problem, however, is squaring such clarity of purpose with an American culture that has nearly perfected the art of victimhood. According to authors Connors, Smith, and Hickman the average American worker has inculcated a v [...]

    27. Rogelio Uribe Enriquez says:

      Excelente propuesta para moverme del estado actual El autor presenta de un forma muy sencilla su propuesta de modelo de trabajo para llevarme a trabajar por encima de la linea.Verlo, adueñarselo, resolverlo y hacerlo son los cuatro pasos del modelo. Expuesto con una clara redacción de las ideas, el mensaje se entrega de forma directa.Altamente recomendable para cambiar mi entorno organizacional.

    28. Parcoast says:

      So this book is sold as the ultimate guide in introducing accountability to your organization. I disagree with that pitch. They try to stretch the definition of accountability to include problem solving and taking action, but that is redefining the word. Yes, you might take on those other concepts if you feel accountable, but that does not make them part of the definition of accountability. So what is the book about? In my opinion, The Oz Principle is about attitude. All of the examples, includi [...]

    29. Gene Babon says:

      If you work for a living, read this book. If you manage other people, read this book, place it on your desk and refer to it daily!The Oz Principle is the book of accountability. Accountability produces results. Results are what every business needs. Results are what every individual needs if s/he wants a better life.The core premise revolves around staying "above the line." Below the line lives victimization and the blame game. We all fall below the line, feeling like we are victims, blaming oth [...]

    30. Heather says:

      I loved this book and consider it to be in the top 3 business books I have ever read. I think there is an oversaturation of business type books in the market today but this one is a mUST ReaD. I loved how it emphasizes individual accountability that will help me in all my different roles. It talks about moving above the line and not getting stuck below. We all fall here and there, but our point is to not feel like victims, blame others, or do the "wait and see" stall tactics. I love individual a [...]
