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.”

    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.

    My own rate of return was over 1000x for doing the Feng Shui program with Adele Trebil. The investment pays for itself in so many ways. I highly recommend Adele as an expert in Feng Shui consultation!

    This lady is ‘The Real Deal’. She provided us with a no-nonsense approach to creating a space that improved productivity and energy. She even helped us with an ‘Auspicious Date’ for a very important event…amazing results!

    I had the following increases while in Adele’s Feng Shui study: finances/cash flow (up 134x); vitality/energy level (up 50%); personal empowerment (up 50%); satisfaction/happiness (up 50%) all within the first three months. The high end real estate that I owned, and had been trying to sell for over a year, sold at FULL PRICE after implementation of Feng Shui adjustments recommended by Adele.

    Every office in government should invest in the real estate 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 energy. Our department was able to save the state of Nevada $11,000,000.00; our division received two awards; I won an international management award and we have become a cohesive team with a proven track record.
