I like to think of it this way: when a team is using majority rule and exercising cabinet responsibility, there may be blood and gore on the walls of the room while the decision is being made, but once the decision is made, no-one "outside" the room should be able to see any discernible difference in the level and nature of the support of that decision by any of the team members.
