I do not think it is a bad thing to keep a lot of decisions within the inner circle but I always suggest to any young captain they should have outside help because you do not always get the truth from people inside the team. Sometimes the coach or fellow senior players are blinkered. There are occasions when they do not want to hear the truth and you just need someone to turn to who is honest and trustworthy. Basically someone who does not tell you as captain what you want to hear.
