Abilene Paradox - 2nd Edition


Travel the road to Abilene and you'll arrive at a place where deeply held, logical values fall victim to group dynamics. It's a bumpy ride culminating in meaningless outcomes and blame, but you can skip the trip if you know how to read the road signs.

Video Synopsis:  A group of adults is off to dinner in Abilene, Texas after an idea to do so was floated during a game of dominos. Upon their return from Abilene, the recriminations begin. It seems that no one really wanted to go, but each thought the other did.

In this age of corporate scandals and lack of accountability, or for even the best of organizations, this parable by Dr. Jerry B. Harvey about a needless family trip to Abilene offers a compelling lesson for groups: Make sure you've received everyone's honest input on the action you're about to take.

People will often "go along to get along" if they have any doubt at all about what will happen if they present opposition. Leaders must create a workplace where people are free to disagree and are encouraged to voice their true opinions.

This best-selling, classic training program has helped thousands of organizations increase profits and productivity by helping teams make better group decisions.


Abilene Paradox  - 2nd Edition Training Video
Has fear led you to say "yes" to a proposed group endeavor when "no" was your true response? It's a common dilemma and the reason many organizational efforts fail.
