Resilience Playbook
"One of our focus group participants said that there is no benchmark [for
the current COVID situation], but we do have materials from the past that we
can apply to these situations," observes Chung. "I believe this is a great time
to be looking at research and to be applying critical thinking, because there is
a lot of information out there that needs to be parsed through. It's a process.
We continue to learn new things, but it is a collective process."
According to Chung, who authored the report with a group of contributors,
the study confirms interior designers value relationships with clients,
partnerships with other professionals, and mentorships within the profession.
"We need to continue to build trust with our constituents by advocating for
health, safety, and welfare and striving for the best design solution. We need
to demonstrate the impact of design on the human experience through proven
outcomes and continue to promote the value of design."
The new ASID research provides suggestions for how to increase resilience
by building relationships. Some examples the study revealed:
* Keep your network and communication channels open; you never know
who your next client will be or where they'll come from.
* Reach out to others in the industry and work collectively; you might
create new opportunities for innovation.
* Think "outside" the profession, so you can see design problems in
a different way. And create new solutions when discussing with experts
from other disciplines.
* Share with your peers. You'll find support and you can learn more
from them.
* Be a mentor. You'll boost your social wellbeing and help build personal
and industry resilience.
"Interior design professionals are very intuitive," adds Chung. "We design for
people and understand them. We are good listeners, but intuition alone does
not get you too far. We are in an age that requires evidence, data, and research.
A lot of design clients are demanding evidence. This research helps confirm
what we may have already expected, but we lacked the evidence. It confirms
the value and future of design-not just based on our emotions."
