A big problem with many group and team sessions is the ability to discuss freely – the ability to get all of the information and opinions on the table. The role of the CEO in any company is to be a leader, someone that ensures all opinions and questions are heard and answered. Someone that makes wise decisions based on a plethora of information and opinions. The CEO of Video Media failed to trust and listen to his team, and was not able to read his team in order to understand that all members had concerns.
As a CEO you should not make a decision without having all of the information on the table. Before making a decision that effects so many people, especially of the partners in this situation, the CEO should have sat down and calmly discussed all of the reasons why they should or should not invest more funds in the company.

The CEO should also have trusted his team, as far as their abilities, skills, and opinions are concerned.

Additionally, as a CEO he should have the ability and humility to read people and ask for feedback. If one of his team members is uncertain about the decisions to reinvest, he should have calmly asked the individual to explain his/her side. He should have also asked the other partners what their opinions were, and also tried to read their facial expressions to see how they fel View More »

    One standard academic argument is that the media’s influence operates in terms of framing issues and setting the agenda for political discussion. In other words, the media tells us what to think about but not what to think. People form opinions from the information that is available. If that information is limited in some way, those opinions will be affected. Generally, the media have greater influence on undecided voters than on decided ones. They also have a greater influence at times of scandal or crisis, or when there is a highly polarized question driving an election. An example of that i
