How The Tin Man Found His Brain
Frank Baum’s series of OZ books included a wonderful Tin Man many of us have come to know and love as in, “The Wizard of Oz.” He, and indeed all of the four main characters, were in search of something they felt lacking within themselves: a brain; a heart; courage; a feeling of home. As it turns out, they all found that they already possessed the very thing they were questing after, a heart, a brain, courage and a home.
The Tin Man was a sensitive soul, and would indeed start to rust whenever he became emotionally affected, because he would often begin to cry. Yet he was always pursuing the one thing that was most important to him, and which he believed would make him whole, a heart.
Don’t we often do the same thing? Seek outside of ourselves what we already possess? The Tin Man is not the only character we will run into within the essays and commentaries found in this book, but others, real and imagined as well. If not on a specific quest, they are nonetheless also seeking in some ways to find resources within themselves.
With a superb storytelling approach, Danute Debney Shaw walks the Tin Man through self-discovery, leading us to a new paradigm for thought and process development in our personal and professional worlds: building courage, confidence, competence and resilience along the way.
