Walking during meetings leads to good decision-making, as they liberate the creative juices, a new study has found.


President Barack Obama is among a growing number of executives who'd rather walk than sit in a conference room when they want to mull and make important decisions, Mashable reported.

While certainly not brand new, Apple Inc. founder Steve Jobs was famous for it. Walking has become a full-fledged fad among executives.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg clinched his deal to buy WhatsApp, the mobile messaging service, for 19 billion dollars in February after taking hour-long walks around Silicon Valley with WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum.

The trend is partly being stoked by executives trying to get a little bit removed from their overly plugged-in desks, with all of the demands of smartphones and computers.

It's also boosted by the increasing number of open-space offices, which give even top executives little privacy to speak candidly or have any alone time.
