Saving Money-Improving Morale

“Every government office should invest in the Feng Shui success strategies that were implemented in our department during this study, to improve efficiency and gain insight for setting up work spaces that improve morale and create positive flow of energy.”

~Karen Catarino, Risk Manager/State of Nevada Department of Administration Risk Management Division

The State of Nevada’s Risk Management Division is not responsible for generating income, but rather for saving the state money by managing risks associated with Workers’ Comp and property/casualty insurance. Department Manager Karen Catarino decided to invest in implementing the Feng Shui business coaching program in her department after learning about its success in the small business community. During the department’s participation period, they were able to save the state of Nevada $11 million dollars.

As with many government entities, the state of Nevada had been hit hard by budget shortfalls in the last several years. State employees lived in constant fear of losing their jobs, and many had already been forced to accept furlough days, cuts in pay and other mandates reducing salaries and benefits. This situation obviously increased stress for state employees, while decreasing morale, productivity, teamwork and the accomplishment of objectives. All of these issues impacted Karen Catarino’s department on a daily basis.

Karen decided to participate in the Feng Shui program, “to add positive energy to the work environment and create more harmony in a government setting.” The biggest challenge facing her department before the program began was securing state legislature approval of their budget for the upcoming year.

Karen’s Exit Survey indicated that benefits received from participation in the Feng Shui study exceeded her expectations:

  • The department was able to save the state $11 million dollars
  • The division received two awards
  • Their proposed budget met preliminary approval by the state legislature
  • The staff became a cohesive team with a proven track record
  • Karen Catarino won an international management award of excellence

On her Exit Survey Karen commented “The staff was skeptical, but they eventually embraced the changes and are genuinely pleased with the final outcome.”

    Adele is an expert in her field. We have had her recommend the best lot on the block, the best way to position our home on the lot, and choose specific locations for our businesses. As a result our lives have been so blessed. Our relationship is strong and our health is fantastic. Our businesses have thrived financially as a result of continued Feng Shui practices. We are grateful to Adele and look forward to working with her in all our future endeavors.

    Adele has helped us on several occasions.  Most recently we were reapplying for a grant (initially denied).  She helped us use Feng Shui principles when we resubmitted the application and we were awarded more than we anticipated.  We have made subtle changes to our home with great results and would highly recommend Adele and her expertise to anyone.

    The strategies that I have learned on Adele’s program have significantly improved the steadiness of the calls I have received from new clients for business. The consistency of new clients for my law practice has improved by 30%. My sense of well-being has improved by 50%. I have felt more at ease…and the underlying sense of anxiety about my financial future and career success has disappeared.
