How Coworking Can Help You Build Your Network
Each day, more businesses and entrepreneurs are foregoing traditional office space and looking to coworking solutions to meet the needs of their organizations. Here at AdvantEdge, we call it ProWorking, because we provide the same level of professionalism, attention to detail and executive atmosphere in our business lounges that we have a reputation for with our private offices and suites.
One of the major benefits of coworking is the access it provides to a professional network. Professional networking can be angst-inducing and a big time commitment. How can you get past the small talk? Wouldn't it be more productive to just stay at the office and work rather than attend a networking event?
With coworking, you get the best of both worlds; the opportunity to socialize when you want to and the space to focus on the task at hand when you don’t want any distractions. Coworking creates a natural environment for networking that encourages genuine human connection rather than superficial small talk. You get to see the same people every day or every week, some of them like-minded, and others with varying skillsets and backgrounds, but all highly motivated to achieve their goals and succeed in their professional lives. By getting to know other coworkers over time while you get a cup of coffee or at office events, you build genuine relationships that strengthen your professional network.
