- How can performance-promoting environment factors be used and applied in the commercial departments of a company?
- What improvements can be achieved by the specific measures?
- Must the employees accept these applications for them to work?
In order to be able to answer these questions it is important to understand how people think and act. We become aware of this when we realize time and again that all decisions are made and decided more than 95% in the subconscious and only 5% are made consciously.
In the accounting and commercial departments of a company we find predominantly rationally thinking people.
Rationally thinking people and employees in the accounting and commercial departments are left brain dominated people. More than 80% of their thinking is done with the left half of the brain. This is important for these areas of responsibility involving Mathematics, Law, Order, Accuracy, Compliance with Laws, Regulations, etc. to name just a few.
As we know, our brain consists of a left and right half. If we describe the left half of the brain as the concrete and rational side and the right as the artistic and emotional side, then we can easily understand how people are influenced by the different sides.
We find right brain dominated people, that is, people who think and work predominantly with the right half of the brain, in artistic and emotional areas of responsibility. For example, this includes musicians, painters, all people who work artistically and emotionally, or who are very sensitive and described as artists.
In Feng Shui work is undertaken with affirmations, pictures, colors and water; this work addresses the right side of the brain especially. As a result, not only is this side of the brain encouraged and supported, but also a stronger use of the mental abilities of each individual is promoted.
Consequently, in addition to encouraging wellbeing, health and better performance, the productivity and creativity can be improved by greater use of the other half of the brain.
In addition to improved creativity, the greater use of the two halves of the brain leads to the often somewhat monotonous tasks, which must be undertaken by the personnel in the accounting department in ever shorter periods of time, being dealt with somewhat more creatively and easily, without the employee being consciously aware of it.
Since rationally thinking people often have difficulties in being receptive to these support strategies, it is important to introduce measures which can be comprehended in concrete terms. This can be achieved by the use of good furnishings with round and oval forms, flowers and beautiful pictures chosen by employees, in compliance with the Feng Shui rules and ideas as well as the integral approach of the Vital-Office® concept.
A beautifully designed office is the requirement of each person, irrespective of which group he belongs to, for a positive attitude to work, thus automatically increasing productivity and the enjoyment of work.
This is especially important at the present time where stress and high levels of pressure are on the agenda in the workplace.
Grant ourselves and our fellow workers a beautiful environment in the workplace and increase our options through the use and support of the knowledge of Feng Shui and the Vital-Office® concept.
