Due to the unsuitable alignment between the goal that Chalon set to the team and the practical capacity of his subordinates, the grumble about his strict standards and high demanding from his subordinates. Although Chalon considered himself a very accessible and transparent leader to his subordinates by his open-door policy, with the fear of being fired and want to change their position into another department, all his subordinates were working under the high pressure. The influence of employees’ tense emotion leads them into a silent environment upon their disagreement of Chalon’s management style, and makes no sense of his open-door policy. Then the decisions which Chalon made after seeking consensus carefully was meaningless and more seem as a autocratic for the reluctant to express the true feeling of his subordinates.
