A lot of coworking space operators have complained over the years that one of the biggest problems they have is their community. They suffer to start them, to grow them and to keep them healthy. If you are having these issues, this coworking community course is for you.
Growing and working with your community should not be a problem. It should mean work but not something to suffer through.
I’ve been involved in community building since I was a teenager and started volunteering. In my university years I worked doing public relations for night clubs and also started working in marketing and communication, doing media production, and then working in public affairs and promoting the startup scene in Brussels. All this experience helped me a lot when I decided to start my coworking space.
It Is a Skill
No, community building is not a natural trait of my personality. I was a dork at school and I’m not the most likable person in the world all of the time, but I can get over it easily and build relationships and communities.
Community building is something I’ve learned to do and so can you. You need to care and be willing to step over your personally imposed limitations, to grow.
I used my community skills to grow Betacowork and to build such an amazing community that three of its members ended buying the coworking space.
Start on Monday
Yes, the course starts on Monday (March 4) and you can get in with a discount: use the code CoworkingHandbook .
Because this is the first edition of the course I’ve slashed the pricing.
What I’ve not compromised is the content. Every weekday (yes, you get weekends off) you will get a new lesson. With these lessons you will get tasks to do in your coworking space that will already help you even before the course is finished. These lessons take into account that you already have a full time job. The course is broken up in chunks to help you do what you have to do and not waste time. In just 28 days you will be reaping the benefits of your commitment.
I Will Be Helping You
I will be participating in the course community area and also available via messaging.
Building a community is something I’ve done multiple times. Join the coworking community challenge and we will grow yours together.
