Have you found yourself considering a co-working membership, but feel that you’ll struggle to make your time there worth the price? Check out our top tips for making the most out of your co-working membership…
HI! MY NAME IS…
For some of us, initiating a conversation is easier than for others, so start with the basics – make eye contact, smile and introduce yourself!
You made it out of the house, found yourself a nice spot and you’re surrounded by a community of people who are, most likely, here for very similar reasons! However, how will you find out that the person sat next to you has some killer advice that could be a massive game change for your business if you keep to yourself all day every day?
For those who find it a little more challenging, why not bring a prop to use as a starting point, for example business cards, design work or even a personal item that means something to you. Show interest in the people around you and watch your network expand effortlessly!
TALK TO US!
We promise we don’t bite! Our dedicated on-site team are here to help you do what you best, whether you are a new member or a seasoned regular. Ask us questions, give feedback, stop by the front desk for a chat over a coffee – we want to know how you’re getting on.
If you’re looking for a specific service or individual with a certain set of skills, let us know! We may be able to introduce you to someone in the building who can help you out.
You may find that you have a “favourite spot” for setting up and getting work done, but why not mix it up throughout the day?
Studies show that incorporating short periods of movement throughout the day can improve efficiency and boost energy and attentiveness, which is more than enough reason to give it a go if you ask us!
Working from different areas of the room you have the opportunity to interact with different people, maybe starting the day in the quiet working zone, take a coffee break in the kitchen and then finish the day in the main co-working space.
STOP THE CLOCK!
Work hard, but don’t forget to take breaks! Get up and stretch your legs, take a walk around the building and grab a coffee – check-in with yourself to make sure you’re in the best state of mind to keep smashing your goals for the rest of the day.
At The Leeming Building we are lucky to be located above the colourful and vibrant Kirkgate Market and Number 32 is only a stone’s throw away from Park Square Gardens, both ideal for getting in a bit of down time to make sure you stay sharp!
LET YOUR HAIR DOWN
Networking re-imagined, our members’ events are designed to encourage natural, effortless connection building the best way we know how – over free booze and nibbles!
We host regular socials in our non-intimidating, open-plan Event Space designed intentionally to bring the Wizu family together so you can get to know your neighbours in a laid back, relaxed environment.
Just watch how easily the conversation flows without the pressure of a corporate background and call it a night whenever you see fit.
