Jump in the car and hit the road to Abilene. What you’ll find is a road littered with anger, frustration, blame and failure. It’s a journey during which deeply held, logical values fall victim to group dynamics, a road that takes you to group consensus where there is none. In this age of corporate scandals and lack of accountability, management expert Dr. Jerry B. Harvey’s parable about a family trip to Abilene offers a timely, compelling lesson about reading the road signs and knowing when you’re headed down the road to Abilene. Completely updated, this classic has a fresh, new look and a faster, more engaging pace. Whether you are interested in leadership, individual-accountability, communication, team-building, decision-making, or problem-solving training, you’ll find The Abilene Paradox flexible enough to target the skill sets most important to your organization at any given time.
