Who are you?
I have a role in a lot of bids for new schools and academies - it always amazes me how often people have to get introduced (or re-introduced) and really how little we 'apparently' know about each other, even after spending weeks or months talking to each other.
I'm not suggesting becoming best friends with everyone, but surely if you really believe in what you are doing, and are really part of a team, you should be willing to stand up for it and support it whenever possible. (Whilst also admitting if you get it wrong).
Completing some work recently I was really surprised to see my picture in some documentation supporting one particular project (alone with other people). I almost felt sorry for them seeing my face, but as a client representative noted - at least we really do know who you are and what you believe in!
Better get a new photo I guess!
