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.”

    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!

    Fabulous information! Well taught and very worthwhile for everyone who owns property, wants to own property, wants to sell property or enhance their life. The class was energizing and flowed. This information is critical for balancing your home, health and wealth during this economic downturn.

    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.

    After joining Adele’s Feng Shui business coaching program, we have noticed that our patient numbers have improved as well as our cash flow. The office has a better flow and runs more smoothly now.

    When we first entered Adele’s Feng Shui project, we were in a severe business decline and in the process of loosing our business, homes and retirement accounts. After completing her program: 1) our business had a positive turn around with cash flow up 65%; 2) we have been able to keep our primary residence; 3) new work and career satisfaction has improved by 85%; 4) our stress levels are down 85%; and 5) a second home of ours that was for sale for a year with no offers, sold quickly. This allowed us to pay off the mortgage and walk away with much needed cash for our business and our personal lives.
