"We know that the importance of these three human qualities head, heart, and guts has been recognized by people before our own time. The idea is not new. The most obvious illustration of it comes from the movies. Almost everyone has seen The Wizard of Oz, one of the most popular films ever made. You will recall that the three main characters (besides Dorothy and her dog Toto) were the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion. The Scarecrow was searching for brains, the Tin Man for a heart, and the Lion for courage or head, heart, and guts. Each recognized he was incomplete. Each was searching for the missing piece that would make him whole. Each had an underdeveloped capacity but either didn′t know it or didn′t know how to use what he had.

We find that many business leaders today are in the same situation as the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Lion searching for the key personal quality that will somehow make them successful or whole (and often investing significantly in ′wizards′ who promise to do so). Quite often, what they need already exists within them but is unrecognized or undeveloped. We hope this book will help move you down the yellow brick road of leadership understanding."
