The paper should be written in the following format using these SUBHEADINGS:
1.    Introduction
2.    Major Thesis (a summary of the article & main points – in one page)
3.    Personal / Professional Application (describe how useful is the article. How could you apply what you read in

your own organization or situation, if in the position to do so?  Expand with specific examples.)
4.    Conclusion
View the film (video): The Wizard of Oz. In this film, the characters (Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Woodsman, & Lion) appear to

suffer from the feelings of helplessness. The film is a great leadership-learning tool, as it draws many likenesses

between the Land of Oz and today’s challenging workplace. This film demonstrates how workers can use victimization to

justify inaction and rationalize poor performance.  In the film, we see these beloved characters transform their attitude

of accountability. With the help of their leader (Dorothy), the other characters feel empowered to take responsibility for

their own destiny and overcome problems and excuses to achieve what they really want.

In Part I of this paper, discuss The Wizard of Oz in regards to: (1)

What makes Dorothy a great leader, especially in

regards to “empowerment of people?” (2) What leadership quality does the Scarecrow, Tin Woodsman and Lion believe

they each lack? (3) What does each character (Scarecrow, Tin Woodsman, & Lion) learn about themselves on their

leadership journey to empowerment? (4) What did Dorothy learn about self-empowerment from Glinda, the Good Witch

of the North, (at the end of the film) about her power to return home? (5) The Wizard had a leadership position; however,

he was clearly not the leader…why? (IMPORTANT: Incorporate actual lines from the film but do not summarize and/or

re-tell the story, I already know it.)

In Part II, discuss what practices and behaviors you believe are important to “empowerment of people.” Provide

examples of how you have had an “OZ Experience” in the past or what you could do in the future to help yourself or

others with empowerment.  Remember, in Part II, to integrate references (citations) to the leadership behaviors/practices

as presented by Manning and Curtis in The Art of Leadership as well as three additional references.
