From Ken Segall in Fast Company: More brains don’t necessarily lead to better ideas. When it came to leading meetings, Jobs had no qualms about tossing the least necessary person out of the room.
From Roger Schwarz: Jointly designing next steps is one of the Ground Rules for Effective Teams. When you jointly design next steps, you make decisions about what to do next by involving others rather than deciding privately and unilaterally. You’re transparent, curious, and enable others to make informed choices. Using this ground rule increases the likelihood that team members will be committed to the solution.

With more than 25 million iPads already sold, this trend is bound to continue.
