This is an experience that many people have had, and it’s something that you should absolutely bear in mind as being especially daunting for anyone who has been in that same position.

Use Creativity As A Team Building Tool

Most companies assume that team building is a natural process that occurs as a result of working together toward a shared goal. However, for the purpose of understanding each other, team members need to be in a position of socializing freely. Unfortunately, there is very little time to get to know coworkers at a personal level when you are pressed for time to comply with an urgent deadline.
As a result, it is foolish for business owners to pretend that work assignments can replace social interactions. On the contrary, if you want to bring your team together around a common goal, you need to set a creative objective that isn’t directly related to your income-generating processes. Your team should create for the sake of creativity!

Creative Women Interview with Edyta Czajkowska

I feel like there is no typical day in the interior design business. One day I could spend all day on an install and another I could be at the showrooms sourcing goods—it really varies. But for the most part, my day usually starts off with breakfast and lots of snuggles and kisses with my kiddos as we plan what we are going to do when I get home. Once I am at my desk, I grab a coffee and tend to my emails, follow up on phone calls, and check on orders. Then I dive into my plan for the day! A lot of the time I will be out and about at various showrooms searching for the perfect piece for a client—whether it be tile, fabric, wallpaper, or a unique vintage find. In the middle of the day, I schedule meetings with potential clients or vendors to see what’s new and exciting. Finally before heading home, I might pop in to a project to check on construction progress and make sure everything is looking according to plan. I truly believe that there is no better way to end my day than by being present with my kids and family, and if I’m lucky, a bubble bath or a bit of reading before bed.
