The Collaboration Superpowers Podcast (general)

The world is not divided into 24 equal time zones like you’d think it would be. There are weird zigs and zags all over the place because of politics and geography. And then there’s daylight savings - which changes at different times - or not at all - depending on where you on in the world. At one point or another, you will schedule a meeting with someone and get it wrong because of time zone confusion. In this episode, we explore tips for making time zones more manageable.
