Twelve Angry Men was a movie about the decision of a boy’s fate in a murder trial. There were a dozen juror’s making the final decision whether he was guilty or not of murdering his own father. In the beginning the majority was thinking he was guilty but towards the end they all came around and changed their minds. There were different ideas and what if’s discussed by the different jurors in the movie. There was one juror that displayed all levels of leadership and that was juror #8. Juror #8 was the only juror to use laissez faire style of leadership in the film. There were a couple of different jurors that displayed the democratic style by trying to involve everyone in the room to give their honest opinions and feelings towards the situation. Affiliative leadership was also used in the film by controlling arguments or disagreements between others but also listened to everyone’s point of view about how they believe it happened. Five leadership traits were all used throughout this film they include integrity, self confidence, sociability, intelligence, and determination each one was clearly used.
The one juror that stuck out the most for me during this movie would be Juror #11 a salesman, was more concerned with deciding a verdict in time for a baseball game than doing justice. He is rarely anything but brutally honest about his feelings. He’s anxious to get started and tried to get the gatekeeper to get it started. He also is negative about a lot. He’s in a hurry to get done. He is still more worried about getting to his game he is so impatient with the others he’s ready to get an agreement so they can leave. He just can’t believe that some of the jurors are changing their mind now.
