How To Have Your Cake And Eat It Too: Being A Tenant With All The Amenities Of A Coworking Space

Being a tenant in a coworking space means that your surroundings entertain two extremes: either the isolation of an office space, or the hustle and bustle of the coworking space. But how can you enjoy both to their utmost? Is there a way to enjoy the solitude of your office while also experiencing the community aspect of coworking? Explore these three tips, and see how you can have the best of both worlds!

  1. Come to events

If you’re someone who needs to work out of their office but is enticed by their coworking community, participate in events! They allow you to get the most out of your office, while also interacting with your coworking community. Because you may not be working alongside your fellow coworkers, events are a great way to stay grounded in the community, relax, create connections, and enjoy your coworkers’ company in an interactive setting.

  •  Have a presence

By using communal spaces, you can take time to dabble in the community when you’re comfortable, and then recede to your office space when you need to. Have a presence in the coworking space by taking a few moments every day to interact with others in the building. Even saying a quick “good morning” before you start your day will give you some engagement with the community! 

  • Coworking vs Office Space: Why Choose?

The great thing about being a tenant in a coworking space is that you have options. You can choose whether you want to work in your office, or in the communal coworking space. Don’t be afraid to use that option to your advantage! Take some time to explore both working environments; you certainly don’t have to be confined to your office. By using communal spaces, you can take time to dabble in the community when you’re comfortable, and then recede to your office space when you need to.

The incredible thing about coworking is that everyone does it differently: there’s not a “right” way to approach coworking. If you’re a tenant with an office space, engage with your community in a way that feels the most comfortable. For example, if you’re someone who loves working around lots of people, your fellow coworkers will be more than happy to see you in the communal spaces, but if you prefer working alone, you’ll be greeted with equal enthusiasm when you choose to resurface. Creating an environment where you can have your cake and eat it too is subjective. You’ll only feel like you’re getting the best of both worlds if you’re enjoying your coworking experience, regardless of what that may look like.
