What are some of the awesome benefits of switching to a coworking space? 1. Increased Productivity: It’s easy to get distracted when working from home, or at a busy coffee shop! Coworking spaces make it easier for you to get down to business, and helps maintain a sense of work structure for those who do not work in a traditional office, while maintaining flexibility in schedule. 2. Increased Professionalism: No more taking meetings in coffee shops or in your living room! Clients are more likely to take you seriously if you meet with them in a professional work atmosphere. 3. Community: This is a huge one! Not only does coworking decrease loneliness, it also expands your network and allows you to connect with like minded individuals that can help you grow and expand your business! What are some of your favourite things about coworking? #sqismyhq   #coworking

Networking is a crucial part of both business and personal success! Here are a few tips on how to streamline your networking strategy. 1. Choose the Right Venue and Event – and think outside the box! Often, attending events in industries adjacent to your own helps to expand your network outside of the groups you would commonly associate with, and opens the door for new knowledge, connections and opportunities! 2. Be Prepared and Do Your Research – Have your introduction prepared, and formulate your pitch so that it’s natural. Know what questions you want to ask, and if you are targeting specific individuals or groups, do your research and come with key talking points related to their experience or background. 3. Make Genuine Connections – Try to focus on having valuable conversations, rather than immediately trying to sell or ask for help. People are more likely to respond positively if you come across as sincere. 4. Offer to Help – Networking is a two-way street! If you are seeking help or guidance from someone, try to consider how your network and connections can help them in return. 5. Follow Up – Be sure to reach out to the individuals you networked with to follow up and stay connected. Even if an opportunity isn’t presented to you right away, by reaching out and staying in touch you will be more likely to be top of mind when a relevant opportunity comes to your connection’s attention! Looking for a great opportunity to network? Our Grand Opening party is less than 2 weeks away on Monday, August 26th from 5:45 – 8 PM. Link in bio! #SQismyHQ   #Networkingtips

Brainstorming is an awesome way to expand on and create new ideas and processes. Here are some helpful tips to ensure you have the best brainstorming session possible! 1. Create a perfect group: Make sure you have the perfect blend of diverse perspectives and expertise needed to guide your conversation. 2. Choose an awesome space: Pick a spot that has minimal distractions, and all the tools you need! (We recommend our “Nook” room here at Office Square😜). 3. Engage in a creative warmup: Make your team more comfortable, and get those creative juices flowing! 4. Ask focused questions: Prepare ahead of time and make sure you know what problem you are trying to solve. 5. Be open to new ideas: A brainstorming session should be a judgement free zone (but make sure you still challenge others, to avoid the ‘group think’ trap!). 6. Finish with actionable items: Make sure to come away from the session with some tangible next steps! Lastly, don’t forget to thank your team😄. Happy Brainstorming! #SQismyHQ   #tipsandtricks
