Channel your inner urban planner and think in terms of zones. "Like a good city or a good restaurant, have zones," advises Kuske. "If I want to talk, I stand at the kitchen counter because that's where everyone comes and talks. If I need some privacy, I find two couches pulled together. It makes a better space, but it also makes for better collaboration because people have a choice." A great city has zones, why shouldn't an office?
