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!

    The most significant changes for us have been in new business opportunities and cash flow with increased clientele seeking us out and connecting, with no change in effort on our part. Our ROI for participating in this BreakThrough Environment Feng Shui program was 500x our investment on the front end!

    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 is a true expert in Feng Shui and a delight to work with. She helped me align the energy in my office to increase my client base and income flow, despite challenging economic times. I highly recommend her.

    I have been a client of Adele Trebil since the inception of my building project on the shores of Lake Tahoe. Together we have worked with my architect, my builder and my landscaper. Adele has assisted me with concept, function, design and finish details. I have found both her knowledge and her practical application suggestions to be invaluable. It became my desire to position the house on the lot, and set up the floor plan according to Feng Shui principles. Maintaining the integrity of the lake, the land and the home were of utmost importance. The results of our labors to do so are apparent. Every person who enters the house remarks about the stability and tranquility that they experience inside. The floor plan is fabulous.
