The Collaboration Superpowers Podcast

We each have different needs when it comes to productivity. Some prefer a quiet space on their own, while others thrive with people around. Some like going to the office, while others prefer to work on the road. Whether you work from home, a cafe, or a co-working hub, what's most important is that you're able to get work done. In this SuperPower Hour, I highlight a variety of different virtual offices. For more stories, visit www.CollaborationSuperpowers.com.

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.
