Leadership Book Club - The Oz Principle

Ever met that employee or coworker who has 100 reasons why they don’t succeed? “My report is late because of Jerry” or “I missed my deadline because Jenny… .” Some people have excuses for everything and can’t seem to break out of the blame game. The Oz Principle by Connors, Smith and Hickman explains how you and your coworkers can rise above difficult circumstances through ownership and accountability.
