Consensus Defined

The speed of team progress depends on how quickly and effectively members pool information and backgrounds and agree on goals, plans and actions. This effort can be subverted when everyone has a different view, strong-willed people won’t give in, some dominate conversation, easy-going members avoid conflict, members won’t express an opinion or some change the subject. Often the majority or the most powerful person decides.

Can RTD work this way and reach high performance? No, not if open participation is limited, minority views are rejected or team member input is ignored. Does this mean that every team discussion must result in an identical, unanimous view? Let’s hope not.
