The core idea of a Coworking community is truly met if the community keeps itself fun and vibrant.It is all about being a part of a community that can provide your business with the right energy that it needs. Coworking communities are such a unique blend of people who can nurture your ideas to grow and bloom.
However one cannot expect that the community culture can truly benefit you and your business by just sitting silently on your seat and waiting for your fellow workers to approach you! You can keep few things in mind in order to keep you and your community bright and vibrant.
1) Be honest with yourself! Admit if you need help.
Most coworking communities are a bundle of talented, skillful and organized people. When new to the group you might get a bit intimidated by all the excellence around and try really hard to put up a brave face. Instead, be open about your weaknesses and don’t hesitate in asking for help whenever required. The wealth of knowledge your community contains is there for you to take advantage of.
2) Don’t forget to greet your neighbor
A day begins with new task lists, new emails to attend to and it might be tempting to immediately get plugged in to work. A community would not grow and build unless members take a minute or two in the morning to say a genuine good morning. Ask your neighbor what he or she will be working on and the challenges you plan to tackle that day. It will not only set a positive tone for the entire day but will also help build a relationship for the future.
3) Do not seclude yourself from the fun
There is no doubt about the fact that the primary reason why anybody joins a coworking space is to increase productivity. However this does not mean that you should become oblivious to the activities going around the space. Be involved in the activities happening around, laugh at a joke your fellow worker just cracked and try being a part of the fun. It would not only de-stress you and help you produce better results.
