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 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.

    It’s hard to describe the great benefits you get from Adele’s work. She makes your environment work for you and support you. The combination of her in-depth knowledge of Interior Design and Feng Shui provides a positive impact that changes your life. I highly recommend that you have Adele Feng Shui your home and work environments!

    Adele did a Feng Shui reading and adjustments at my office/home as part of a grant study in November 2010. The changes that were made did definitely help my business. Following that, my partner Kate and I took her Feng Shui Professional Practitioner Training classes and graduated with completion certificates. Adele is an expert and I have learned much from her. I highly recommend her.

    Over the past few years we have come to rely on the tranquility and abundance that you have brought to our environment with your Feng Shui counseling. We were confident, therefore, that the proper Feng Shui adjustments would be of benefit in the selling of our home. The results of your recommendations have surpassed our expectations. Only well qualified and serious buyers came to look at our home, and we had an offer of 97% of our asking price in less than a month. This is remarkable in the currently slow moving real estate market.

    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.

    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.
