A Consilience Workshop: forging Consensus from the evidence-base


In organizational cultures driven by a need for implementation of evidence-based practices, authentic consensus can be hard to craft. An evidence-base itself often serves as an unnamed authority whose voice matters more than the people in the room. Using a Consilience process to launch a Consensus Workshop allows a group to find a both-and name for evidence-based practices. In a way that honors their organizational readiness, values, and group wisdom, while also honoring fidelity to the practices themselves. We’ll be exploring how I’ve used Consilience Workshops to help K-12 schools craft evidence-based performance indicators and measurement tools to help them chart their own continuous improvement.
