There are several characteristics of successful coworking community managers. Firstly, these people need to love the space itself. Secondly, they should be passionate about people. They need to enjoy being around people and enjoy connecting with others.
Also, community managers should have a willingness to do any job, no matter how small, in order to keep the coworking community running smoothly. At the same time, a good community manager needs to be someone who works well independently and doesn’t require a lot of supervision. They need to be self-motivated problem solvers who can get things done.
Since coworking revolves around the community, you need a community manager to bring the community together. And although the people in your coworking space may work for the same companies or on the same projects, this way of working is still collaborative. As a result, we search for the type of people who embody all the above. We look for community managers who will make coffee, but who can also make conversation and help everyone feel like they belong to a community.
