Follow the Yellow Brick Road book, by Sam Alibrando, Ph.D.Follow the Yellow Brick Road uses the Wizard of Oz myth to depict and prescribe how people (and therefore organizations) transform and grow–especially through challenges.  The most powerful way to truly change is to learn by experience while on your journey through the “Land of Oz.”  Learn more

Endorsements and Reviews

“In his book, Follow the Yellow Brick Road, Dr. Alibrando uses the characters, scenes and settings from the Wizard of Oz to educate the reader how to “turn adversity into positive change and growth.”  Since almost everyone has seen and/or read the Wizard of Oz, the reader can easily understand and relate to the message that Dr. Alibrando is trying to convey.  Moreover, by connecting his message to the Wizard of Oz, the reader is more likely to retain the information because people remember stories.  In addition to conveying such useful information in such a creative manner, while reading the book, I realized that his chart ‘on how to select a therapist’ was equally applicable to selecting an attorney.  It just so happens that I will be giving a presentation on finding the right fit lawyer two months from now and I plan on incorporating that information into my lecture.”

– Mark B. Baer, Esq., Family Law Attorney, Mediator, Collaborative Practitioner, Author, Lecturer, and Keynote Speaker

“How to Turn Adversity into Positive Change and Growth”

“The skills and tools presented have had a dramatic effect on our staff. We have noticed in our employees a much keener sense of awareness and compassion toward co-workers and the conflicts that arise during a typical business day.”

— Karen Farrington, Principle, Matura Farrington Staffing Services
