What is the most commonly question you heard to enhance office fengshui? I must say my fair share would be “Is my seat in my favourable direction?”
Typically, most of us have read on various feng shui solutions to boost one’s luck. This I must say is not a wrong solution and the easiest within what one can do. Albeit, if I were to point out, its the easiest way though it has much lesser impact. How can you as an employee or more importantly as a boss improve your office feng shui?
Location within the office is more important than Direction
The prosperous location within your office holds a higher key consideration over the direction. Each commercial property are like houses where there are the prosperous sectors in your office too (and the not so good sectors).
Should you be located at the negative sectors, even if your direction is good, it may only be limited in helping you. (But better than nothing!) As such, the entrance, meeting rooms and where employees sit are important.
Even in a good office but should your prosperous location of the office be in a store room or toilet would just mean the good luck goes to waste.
For employees though, we all know more often than not, there is no say in where you can sit. As such, my advice for employees? Find out your best direction using your Kua number as this is at least in some ways within your control.
The Corner Office
Bosses would be need to pay attention to this. After determine the prosperous location, the senior management level should also be put in the location to boost their authority luck. Why this focus? Being the leader of the company, we would naturally want to strengthen and enhance your luck within the office. There are specific area meant for this for better luck and wealth enhancement. Likewise, respective key revenue or people related function (e.g. sales, HR and Finance) should also be placed in the right location. Feng shui assessment is thus best when done before moving into office for better planning.
Advice for employers and bosses? Do the planning and assessment before confirming the office.
Flexible Office Concept’s Flaw
As this is the "in thing" in coporate world especially in start up, I though I would share my opinion on this. The cool thing nowadays could be such open and flexible concept within the office but this may pose a flaw in feng shui aspect. As employees are given the flexibility (including the boss), there are no fixed seating. With this, it is hard for anyone to tap on the prosperous area of the office feng shui.
In summary, the above mentioned is to give a key yet simple understanding of just one part of office feng shui and its planning. There are other areas of considerations to feng shui for a commercial property (e.g. layout outside the property, roads around it, building age, size and more). Such planning is applicable be it the business nature or industry and best done before move in.
