Keynote / Two to Four Hour Training Session / One to Two Day Workshop
Exiting OZ is an eye-opening program about leadership, generational diversity and how organizations must shift their focus to survive in today’s rapidly changing world. It is for owners, leaders, managers and team members interested in building a sustainable organization and populating it with dedicated, high performance people. These highly researched and groundbreaking strategies are also for high performance people interested in avoiding the perils and pitfalls of OZ organizations.
OZ is a metaphor for Organizational Zeal, and is depicted in Dr. Sherry Buffington’s book, Exiting OZ, as the notion that the organization is more important than the people keeping it alive. OZ organizations are full of ineffective leaders and each is exposed in this book through clever comparisons to the characters from L. Frank Baum’s book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Exiting OZ takes you on a fascinating journey through the world of typical organizations and explains in colorful analogies why business-as-usual is a formula for failure as the newer generations move into the workforce majority and reject standard management practices.
