Trip to Abilene !

The Abilene paradox is a paradox in which a group of people collectively decide on a course of action that is counter to the preferences of any of the individuals in the group. It involves a common breakdown of group communication in which each member mistakenly believes that their own preferences are counter to the group's and, therefore, does not raise objections. A common phrase relating to the Abilene paradox is "rocking the boat".

Sounds familiar ? think we all would have taken a "trip to abilene" some time or other in our corporate life , try avoiding - speak up and stand out !
