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.”

    This lady is ‘The Real Deal’. She provided us with a no-nonsense approach to creating a space that improved productivity and energy. She even helped us with an ‘Auspicious Date’ for a very important event…amazing results!

    I would like to express my appreciation for your assistance in selling my property at 2465 Kinney Lane, Reno. As you may recall, the house was on the market for 13 months. I hired several different realtors to assist me in selling this property, all with their own ideas and suggestions. It was not until I hired you and you helped me implement several levels of Feng Shui adjustments that the house actually sold. The original assessment of the property was $1,800,000 and in a down turning market it sold for $1,500,000. As an architect and property developer, I have seen the advantage that Feng Shui assessment has in evaluating my real estate purchase and development decisions. It has been very helpful in determining what needs to be done to improve overall value. I would recommend your services to anyone needing to buy, sell or develop real estate.

    Adele advised that I create a sanctuary space in my home, giving me permission to have a positive focus on myself. Once I re-energized myself at home, I had more energy as a business woman. Her study tools caused me to focus on the ‘BIG PICTURE’, helping me realize that one part of life affects the other and that what I’m doing with the energy in my house also affects the energy in my business. I now have more harmony and peace in both spaces and can harness creativity and passion for my work without being cluttered by other ‘stuff’. My gross revenue increased significantly and I have gained 100% more satisfaction from my home and work environments. Would I recommend Adele? Absolutely!

    I took instruction with Adele for the better part of 2 years, completing the Introductory, Intermediate and Advanced Practitioner Trainings. Adele was able to teach this intricate practice to me so that now I feel confident practicing on my own. The detailed information I learned from this course is a must for managing your home and your business environment. I have been able to create a calm and balanced environment in my home. I have used this knowledge to make corrections in my work environment that I believe have mitigated negative influences, bolstering my health and attitude in the workplace. Adele has been a great mentor and teacher. Thank you Adele!
