Innovation happens when we are our most productive selves. Recently, we had the pleasure of talking to Brett Hautop, Founder at Workshape. Brett spent a considerable amount of time developing a unique approach to the whole world of virtual work environments leveraged from his experience working at LinkedIn for several years.

In this piece, the author offers three suggestions for becoming more mindful of the influence you have already but don’t always see.
