“You’ve always had the power my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself.” –The Wizard of Oz

We are all familiar with the movie “The Wizard of Oz.” Though written for a young audience, there are many examples within the movie that teach us about success in the workplace.

Dorothy's sole purpose is to find her way back home, and this purpose became her guide as a clear purpose/goal. Each character in the movie wanted to reach the Emerald City to see the wizard; yet only by working together as a team, each person was able to achieve her or his personal goals. Adversity is a part of our daily lives; and by creating strategies to overcome these challenges, success can be achieved.

Participants can expect to:

  • Determine how having clarity of purpose can help your team achieve its goals.
  • Learn that like the characters in the Wizard of Oz, each member of your team has positive contributions to make toward team success.
  • Create strategies to overcome adversity.
