The wisdom of the group

I actually like meetings. Not individual meetings, but I do like a well-run, productive meeting. But the thing that struck me yesterday, after attending a meeting with a bright and articulate group of people, was how much wiser the group is than any individual. Time and again I heard someone make a comment and thought, "I would never have come up with that on my own." Since I tend to love my independence, I was glad for the reminder that, although I was a help to the group, the group was even more a help to me.
