Coworking: Collaborative environment benefits
These days entrepreneurs are getting their start in coworking spaces. It’s a business-friendly alternative to a garage, bedroom, or basement.
Coworking takes great interpersonal skills. These are the soft skills that are related to the way you communicate and interact with others. When these skills can be built upon, the results are work environments that promote both collaboration and opportunity. Individuals who engage in collaboration are more likely to succeed.
When you are a remote worker, setting personal goals is extremely important and in collaborative environments there is plenty of room for individual empowerment. Completing individual goals is much easier when there are other like-minded people around to partake in the positive outcomes of a job well done. When we share our goals (identifying and discussing) with others, we are more inclined to complete them.
Tip: Create a power group within your coworking space to hold each other accountable to accomplish each step of your goals.
Another astounding benefit to collaboration is the amount of support. A sense of community is instilled in the workers of the space. A support system is impactful, especially when working on more difficult challenges, to have someone else around to give feedback and offer guidance. Collaborating is clearly directly related to better performance, stemming from the support found in a connected and social setting.
Participants who act collaboratively in a supportive working environment are able to stay on task 64% longer than their isolated peers, with better levels of engagement, higher success rates, and lower levels of fatigue. -Forbes
