Course Overview


Occasionally everyone finds themselves in a group or social setting and may feel compelled to agree with an idea or suggestion, though silently in disagreement. You may feel group cohesion is dependent upon everyone being on one accord. This video uses dramatizations based on the parable, introduced by Jerry Harvey, about a family trip to have dinner in Abilene, Texas. This famous story proves how going along with the crowd merely for the sake of keeping people happy is how bad decisions are made. The training program explores when agreement is not the best decision, the consequences of not managing agreement well and how to avoid bad group decisions. Learners who complete this program emerge more confident and ready to be a valuable group member.
