Ever been right in your head, but wrong out loud because everyone else seemed to think it wasn't a good idea? In 1977, Jerry B. Harvey, professor of management science at George Washington University, outlines the Abilene Paradox which describes how the inability to properly manage agreement can be an indication of dysfunction within an organization.
On this episode of the MEMIC Safety Experts Podcast, Randy Klatt, Director of Region 1 Loss Control for MEMIC and I talk about how managing agreement and how a leader comes to their decisions might just be the next step in moving your safety culture forward.
