In this episode of the Coworking Values Podcast with our co-creator Rayon Design – unveiling tools for ordinary architecture, embracing collaboration, speed, and openness for a new design culture.

We have Peter Block, the founder of Designed Learning and renowned author of books like:

  • Community – The Structure of Belonging.
  • Activating the Common Good: Reclaiming Control of Our Collective Well-Being,
  • The Abundant Community: Awakening the Power of Families and Neighborhoods.

Peter talks about the importance of creating meaningful conversations among coworkers and how rearranging physical spaces can promote social interactions. 

He also delves into how he sees coworking spaces as more than just places to work but as platforms for connecting with others.

They’re hubs for bringing people together, they talk about the challenges of getting people to talk to each other and how rearranging the space can help. 

Peter and Bernie share some stories about events that brought people together and how language can make a big difference.

Peter believes that asking meaningful questions and using the right words can change things, and language plays a role in creating a positive and collaborative environment in coworking spaces.
