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!

    Adele is a very skilled Feng Shui expert. She turned our house into a home. She has skills in being able to look at space and transform it into something entirely new and wonderful. I recommend Adele very highly; not only does she do great work, she is a delight to work with.

    I had a 300x increase in my business revenue and my wife, Jennifer, had a 50% improvement in her career recognition and satisfaction during Adele’s Feng Shui consultancy program. I have had a constant flow of clients contacting me, instead of long stretches with little to no new business. We have also noticed many side benefits which have delighted us and improved our personal lives: 1) our sleeping patterns and our sex life have both improved; 2) we have finally opened an investment account and have started saving money; 3) our family life has gotten more fulfilling due to stress reduction, better communication and closer emotional ties.

    We notice even now that if we… stay on top of our Feng Shui adjustments, the phone rings and we have walk-ins and all of us feel good. By participating in the Feng Shui program with Adele, our business has experienced 80% improvement to the work environment, which not only has generated more cash for us as owners, but has also improved the day to day working conditions for the entire staff.
