The oz principle book report
Even the most successful people and organizations can fall prey to the virus of victimization. Living above the line indicates consistently following the steps above to solve problems and move the organization forward. It stems from accountable people.

It is important to find and apply new ideas that may help the organization overcome obstacles and anticipate what is ahead.

Do It. Case closed…Regardless of the situation, you cannot even begin to turn things around until you take charge of your circumstances and accept your own responsibility for better results in the future. Ownership should not depend on the quality of your circumstance.

This is simply the standard of accountability that you and your organization must consistently strive for to achieve the results that you are after. See it is a call to deliberately recognize the internal barriers to success. Such hammering will only propel people back into the victim cycle. When the core problem is not addressed, the ills will eventually resurface and the business is back to treading water. Plus, they never did explain even feebly what "Above the Line" and "Below the Line" have to do with Dorothy-- too many mixed metaphors for me. Whether a company is languishing or thriving, performance invariably improves when employees take on greater levels of personal accountability and ownership. Doing It means accepting full responsibility not just for your desired results, but also for your progress or lack thereof toward the desired result. Workshops based on the book are regaining popularity in organizations, including those in healthcare, as a way of teaching the business philosophy that individuals and entire organizations can overcome unfavorable circumstances and achieve more desired results if they make accountability a core value.
Doing It means accepting full responsibility not just for your desired results, but also for your progress or lack thereof toward the desired result.

Case closed…Regardless of the situation, you cannot even begin to turn things around until you take charge of your circumstances and accept your own responsibility for better results in the future. Do It.
