How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a Product Owner, I spend most of my time collaborating with others across different business units. On any given day, I could be spending time brainstorming design concepts of upcoming features with our design team or assisting them with presenting these concepts to outside users as part of our user testing process.
