About the Socratic Dialogue Method:
The unique Fred Friendly Socratic Dialogue format, devised by the late president of CBS television news and producer for Edward R. Murrow, uses hypothetical scenarios and role-playing to explore how decisions are made and what their impact will be on a variety of constituents. The moderator guides the panel through a scenario that, as it unfolds, reveals the dilemmas, the choices and the decision-making processes confronting all sides in concrete situations. To watch “Anatomy of a Hostile Takeover”, the 1987 video featuring industry leaders such as T. Boone Pickens; chief executives from James Bere (Borg-Warner), Robert Mercer (Goodyear), and Warren Buffett (Berkshire Hathaway); Sir James Goldsmith; Rudy Giuliani (former US Attorney, Southern District of NY); Frederick Joseph (Drexel Burnham Lambert); John Gutfreund (Salomon Brothers) and others, that inspired this event please click the VOD link here.
