Innovative creativity, accuracy in problem solving, high quality products, solid teamwork, an incredible sales team, a streamlined cash flow and other such things have been the basic standards to judge performance for a business unit.
However, we often see how team members are not get along, blaming each other, passing over responsibility, and many other negative behaviours that can decrease a team’s performance.
Could poor feng shui be the core problem? From the many years of my career as an expert feng shui practicioner, members are not get along, blaming each other, passing over responsibility, and many other negative behaviours that can decrease a team’s performance.
Could poor feng shui be the core problem? From the many years of my career as an expert feng shui practicioner, there are a few things that I can share. Feng shui, or earth luck, is one of the three major factors that influence our luck, along with heavenly luck and human’s luck. It is an important factor that can affect the performance of your team.
There are bad spaces, with low-quality qi, that block great ideas from emerging, or make certain staff members become ringleaders and make the office not as productive. There are rooms with qi that can trigger conflict or improper decision making that can result in huge losses for a company.
Contrarily, there is good qi that can be cultivated in accordance with the yin and yang theory. Rooms with good qi help people to work happily, innovatively, loyally and agile, thus helping the company to perform well.
The question is how do we know if a room has a good or bad qi. This is where feng shui matters. Feng shui calculates with an ancient formula the good and bad qi in an office. We can try several calculation methods, including the flying- star method or the eight—mansions method, or even an advanced method like xuan kong da gua.
To do the calculations, there are two important pieces of data that are needed. First is the orientation of the office, which can be measured with a feng shui compass called a loupan. The second is the birthdate of the key persons in the office. From these pieces of information, feng shui practitioners can calculate the qi distribution in the office, as well as a spatial orientation for each key person.
The calculated result will be recommendations for spatial orientation for each of your key employees, not to mention their doors and table orientations, as well as zoning for their team. After finishing these basics, there will be further set-ups for details, like the color ambiance, decorative elements to promote positive qi, and decorative elements that might weaken the negative qi.
Decorative elements that are commonly used by feng shui practitioners are mini-fountains, plants and metal- based products or porcelain decorations with specific shapes.
Offices with good feng shui certainly will help to create a comfortable and productive office space for the team to reach its targets, hence the company’s performance can be optimized.
