Assunto:  Mind Guard



  Self-appointed mind-guards who act as the group whip to bring dissenting
members into conformity with the group's or leader's position.


  This mind guard will say something like "Mary, the CEO is becoming concerned about your attitude. He's beginning to wonder if you are really on board this team."

   Perhaps the CEO  hasn't said a word, but a tacit understanding caused the mind guard to speak to the team member.




The discussion should be time limited, and require either a large majority or unanimous decisions after that time period.    Then, appoint a leader, publicly, and plant a confederate (a "mind guard", by Irving Janis' terminology) who is working with you. Have the confederate unyieldingly sympathise with the leader's opinion.



  Mind guard in your example, is very problably the setting of the group mind, the way they are supposed to think and act. That is, it´s frame of mind.
