Self-Assessment Assignment Instructions
Answer the 5 questions below.
In reality, Frank Baum’s story The Wizard of Oz was a commentary on the economic and political times at the turn of the 20th century. The scarecrow represented the farmers, who were perceived as folks without a brain; the tin man represented industry, which didn’t seem to have any heart; the cowardly lion symbolized William Jennings Bryan, whom Baum felt lacked the courage to stand up to the wrongs in Washington, D.C. The wizard was the federal government—who didn’t really have the answers everyone sought. And Dorothy represented the average American who showed her friends they actually had what it took to reach their dreams.1 Leadership resides in each of us.
Take a moment and evaluate how you model Dorothy’s Way.
