Cubicles can be seen as dehumanizing-or as a way for everyone to be connected. It’s all in how you manage and message non-existant walls. We know one CEO who tore down his corner office and set up cubicles for himself and his senior-most people. There were still private cubicles and open spaces when people needed to have private meetings, but even the CEO worked in an open-plan setup. If you’re not willing to do that, why are you asking that of your team? Business shouldn’t be a caste system. It should be a communications network.
