Consensus Means Agreement not the Best Answer

One of the biggest myths and most controversial topics I try to debunk in my team training classes is that consensus is a good thing. We have been fed a mindless and mind numbing amount of teamwork information that purports consensus is great teamwork. All of us rowing in the boat together, or flying like birds in unison makes for a great team.
