We’re huge fans of Patrick Lencioni’s 5 Dysfunctions of a Team and we love applying his principles to our passion for perfect workspaces. With Lencioni’s accountability principle in mind, putting yourself in the perfect space, surrounded by a community that shares a drive for healthy accountability is critical for any business to succeed. If you’re shopping for the perfect coworking space, here is what we think would be on a Lencioni-approved shopping list:

1.) One location. Your people need to be together so you can clearly communicate one goal and establish forward movement for you to progress as a team, together. Privacy without isolation. Everyone needs a space to put their heads down and get the job down, with the ability to walk a few feet and meet with the team when needed.

2.) Scalability. Your business won’t be the same size for long. The perfect space should offer flexibility for you to grow, without worry that you’ll have to move again.

3.) Community. Learning from others and leading your business alongside like-minded professionals who can provide accountability is a no-brainer when it comes to growth. We need each other, so why not have it built-in to your workspace?

4.) Amenities. You shouldn’t have to worry about office equipment and resources. Let someone else take care of providing abundant amenities so you can focus on your business.

We’re confident that our MAC6 coworking space will check the boxes for Lencioni’s list, and more. If you’re looking for a coworking space to help you take your business to the next level, schedule a tour and let’s chat.
