A Day in the Life of an Interior Designer
In her video, Building a Business is like Coaching a Sports Team, Karin Bohn and her team talk about their strength and weaknesses. She believes discussing this topic with her team will help create a better work environment. She voices her strengths and weaknesses, and states the ways in which her team can help keep her accountable. One of Karin’s weaknesses is time. She not only reveals her weakness, but she tries to find a solution. She states that “if her team could be more clear about the time they needed for her, then it would help her accommodate.” One of the challenges with interior design is that you always are creating new ideas and problems solving. To make this more challenging, it is deadline driven. This sometimes brings about forceful creativity. Karin states how it is important to make new targets for each quarter. She shared this with her team so they could work together to meet these goals. This brings optimism and enthusiasm to the team. “This is when it is game time and everyone is on the field ready to play and win the game.” Karin also brings us into her studio and shows and gives feedback on some of the projects and renderings they are currently working on.
