What made coworking a sensible idea is the shift in technology from big bulky desktop machines to a mobile world we live in now, where anyone can work from anywhere. That being said working from coffee shops or your couch isn’t the ideal situation.

Traditional management practices put way too many barriers in front of employees. We’ve got to rethink our role as workplace professionals to focus our attention on leveraging human talent — on creating workplaces that enable people to be productive, to collaborate with each other, and to invent new ideas.
