When Working From Home Doesn’t Work

This is a great article on the power and value of working together.  I see this happening in our space here.  Members bouncing ideas and thoughts off other members.  You can't replace the experience and value of human interaction with technology.  As much of a technology geek that I am, I have to agree there is nothing technically available to replace a door jam conversation.  (for the younger generation - the mere expression "Door Jam" comes from a time when we all worked in the same building and many problems were solved hanging out in someone's doorway)

"The power of presence has no simple explanation. It might be a manifestation of the “mere-exposure effect”: We tend to gravitate toward what’s familiar; we like people whose faces we see, even just in passing. Or maybe it’s the specific geometry of such encounters. The cost of getting someone’s attention at the coffee machine is low—you know they’re available because they’re getting coffee—and if mid-conversation, you see that the other person has no idea what you’re talking about, you automatically adjust."

The reaction was generally unsparing. The announcement was depicted, variously, as the desperate move of a company whose revenues had fallen 20 quarters in a row; a veiled method of shedding workers; or an attempt to imitate companies, like Apple and Google, that never embraced remote work in the first place.

Our open industrial spaces are frustrating our best people and likely impacting our end products.

58% of high-performance employees say they need more quiet work spaces.

Behold the open industrial office space. At one moment, it feels like such a hip environment, bustling with easy communication and collaboration, innovation and headphones just behind every monitor. At another moment, the open office is the loudest, most annoying, distracting and unproductive environment one can imagine.

From skeptical to committed, the journey of a coworker.

This is a great article on the mental jungle-gym most go through when considering using a coworking space.  Why would I pay money for a work space?  How did I make money before I committed to coworking?  

The article ends with these great comments on coworking:

You get what you invest

I’m trying my best not to pull out a cliché here, but it’s true that if all you’re investing is money, all you can expect is a flexible workspace. If you’re willing to put some of yourself, your time, your expertise and your energy into the community, you’ll see a far greater value in coworking.
