I answered that it is very important that all members of a team feel that their opinions are valued, and that a group can work together to arrive at a solution that everyone is comfortable with. I had some trouble deciding on this one, especially since the responsibility for the decision was mine, but I decided that it was more important to be able to compromise and trust the group that you're working with.

I take the opinion of my group members and represent their decision "as their leader" and accept any risk and penalty thereafter.
