Are you on a Consensus Project?

I'm reading Scott Belsky at the moment. One phrase strikes me on page 188 of the US edition. I've worked on a couple of these types of projects. What about you?

"Consensus-driven teams run the risk of settling on what offends noone and what satisfies noone."

I sometimes get told that I've 'shaken things up again'. I'd almost rather be doing that than satisfying noone.

What you say here reminds me of some of Seth Godin's books.

What does Ewan do?

Module Masterclass

School leaders and innovators struggle to make the most of educators' and students' potential. My team at NoTosh cut the time and cost of making significant change in physical spaces, digital and curricular innovation programmes. We work long term to help make that change last, even as educators come and go.
