Lessons We Learned From Working in A Coworking Space

“It is beyond doubt that all knowledge begins with experience.” - Immanuel Kant

 

The latter quote by Immanuel Kant, a great German philosopher got us to whisper ‘amen’ in our hearts, as we believe there is no better way to learn. Having a privilege to work in a coworking space for some months has developed not only our skills but also our personality. Being a part of like-minded people with great visions has driven us to go beyond our comfort zone. Although a post probably couldn’t contain everything we have learned, we try to share our joy of learning in EV Hive through this post.

 

To Help One Another

Each person from each startup usually has their own expertise and skill that probably others don’t have. Here in coworking space, we could ask for help to other coworkers based on their ability even if we are not in the same startup. This is a great thing to have because you had the chance to exchange insights with different types of people.

 

To Be Cooperative

Working in a coworking space means that we should be ready for any unexpected noises. For instance, if some coworkers are talking too loud, or if there is not enough desk space, or even when there’s an event so we need to clear up the space early. It is not a hard thing to do because sometimes, we might need another coworkers to cooperate with us. We should be supportive to other coworkers so there will be an efficient and productive working environment for all.

 

To Have Fun!

Although there are tasks due and targets to reach, it doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun along the way. EV Hive arranges events to strengthen the relationships in the workplace community. Besides having dart boards competition, potluck lunch, martabak (Indonesian pancake) and pizza party, just sitting in EV Hive is made fun thanks to fellow coworkers. Everyone promotes knowledge sharing as EV Hive does, and it is uniquely done. Working never felt this fun.

 

To Be Open To New Things

Entering a new workplace is not as easy as it sounds. To adapt is one of the hardest things you have to do in every new place. But not in a coworking space. In EV Hive, everybody shares their experience and opinions through fun ways. To open yourself means you are ready to add new values that could make you a better person, or in our case, a better coworker. This is where we are very thankful at.
