Working in the same place at the same time can feel motivating and supportive, but this article by @anbfisher warns that working in close proximity puts us at risk of “a tendency toward groupthink.” Instead, it is proposed that we can benefit from increased diversity of thought with virtual teams, who are likely to, “…come up with not just more ideas, but better ones, and faster.”

“In a physical setting, team members are likely to agree with the dominant person’s ideas to keep the peace, but virtual meetings deliver what Kingl calls “a meritocracy of ideas.””
