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.”

    Working with Adele has been such a delight! Thanks to her, our new home feels pleasant and balanced-the perfect environment for raising a happy family and enjoying our friends and time together. I’m most excited about our home office. Since she added her special touch to this space, I find myself clearer, more focused, peaceful and thrilled about prosperity that comes from working at home!

    I have hired Adele several times for personal and business work. I would recommend her services to anyone interested in a fresh design perspective to maximize energy flow in any environment.

    I would never make a move without Adele! How can she be so spot on? I can’t even tell my friends how amazing she is because they just don’t believe me! I have hired her for three projects and each one has been more successful than the last. Thank you Adele for helping me with my business success.

    When I was seeking Feng Shui advice for my home, one of my main purposes in doing so was to help our four year old son to sleep better at night. He had staunchly refused to sleep in his own bedroom for two prior years, and despite many different approaches to this problem, we saw no improvement. Adele suggested several simple but very specific adjustments, which I was able to put in place on the very day of her visit. We did not mention this to our son, nor did we do anything else different to produce a change. Within a day of implementing the changes Adele had suggested, he spent his first night in his bedroom and has been sleeping in his own room ever since.
