Feng Shui Tips for Office

A good office feng shui does not merely focus on growing the business of a company but it must also lean towards increasing the earnings of its owner or boss. The objective of office Feng Shui is to enhance the wealth and fortune of the boss or owner. Following are ways to attain a good office feng shui in order to improve the wealth and fortune of the boss or owner.

1. The office of the boss should be in a commanding position.

In order to achieve a commanding position, the building in front of the boss’s office should be farther and lower while the buildings behind his office should be higher. In this manner, the office is provided a complete view of its front.  Otherwise, a taller building in front tends to cover and shroud the office. The building on the right should also be relatively lower than the boss’s office while the wide main road should on its left.  A park or garden lawn in front of boss’s office is also ideal for good feng shui.

2. The office building should be located away from places emitting negative energy.

The spaces surrounding the office building also directly affects the people in the building. Thus, the office building should not be adjacent in places like temples or ritual grounds, prison/ jail, cemeteries/ haunted houses, hospitals or even police stations whose unwarranted negative energy can impact the fortune of the office.

3. The boss’s office should have sufficient lighting.

The office of the boss acts as the central financial locus of a company. Hence, it should naturally have adequate lighting. An excessively brilliant light on the other hand is likewise not very suitable. Glass windows on both sides of the boss’s office can generate very strong lighting and transparency, which can weaken the internal energy of the office. However, inadequate lighting obtained from the sun can ensue to the accumulation and trapping of negative energy which produces enormous pressure that also impede and hamper fortune creation.

4. The design of the boss’s office should reflect the respectable temperament and decent demeanor of the boss.

Aside from the office structure, the design and layout of the furniture and other decorations of the office is an integral part and reflection of the boss’s position and personality. The office should show the prestige and stature of the owner. The choice of sofas, paintings, and decorations should provide guests and visitors a glimpse of the notable esteem and distinct status of the boss.

5. The desk of the boss should also be in an authoritative position.

The table of boss should not be facing the door else business transactions or dealings will cumbersomely or incompetently. Moreover, the desk should be away from the window to avoid strong lightning which could cause burden, pressure and stress.  Instead, the desk should be strategically placed in an area with relatively weaker lighting than the rest of the office room. This provides the boss with better perceptibility and discernibility of his surroundings.

6. The location of the boss’s office must be away from external pressures.

When a thoroughfare boulevard or red light district is in front of the office building, poles, transformers, large chimneys, built corners and the like can create external pressures that produce stress on the office door which can unsettle people coming in and out of the office.  Thus, the location of the office should avoid this sense of rush or haste that causes imbalance.

Feng shui considerations in the boss’s office

1. Door

The office of the boss should have a door for privacy and security.  Moreover, the door should preferably be opened in the left front in ward because people conventionally walk in their right. In this way, when people open doors and walk in, they bring their luck and positive energy along with them.

2. Separation of Office and High-level floor

The office of the boss and other business executives are preferably located on the upper floors.  Moreover, the office of the chairman and the manager should have separate rooms.  This is important to avoid conflict and competition in power, which can impede or interfere with coordination and harmonization.

Moreover, it doesn’t follow that a bigger the room, the more stylish you are. Instead, the boss’s office should not be too large which may create an impression of being alone or distant. A relatively small office for the boss is ideal to allow better accessibility, availability and openness to his subordinates. Any form of business entails cooperation and teamwork.

3.  Boss’s office or desk at the back

The position of the boss’s office is important. It is the key to the success or failure of the company. In principle, it follows the position of the officer in command of a military, who stays behind his army and make the strategic directions in dispatching his soldiers. This position allows him to achieve better control of his staff, who in turn becomes more dedicated and devoted to their work. In a similar fashion, the boss office should be at the back end of the company in order to create an escalating arrangement or step ladder organization inside the office.    Otherwise, if the boss is near the entrance door, he is likened as a soldier or pawn which possesses a superfluous position and is easily expendable.

4. The boss’s desk bigger than staff desk

Traditionally, the chairman’s desk is always bigger than the staff.  This is correct in Feng shui, because the bigger desk symbolizes bigger responsibility and authoritative command. If the desk is not large enough, one option is add some cabinets next to it to increase the space in order to accommodate greater force or energy. In this way, the boss can successfully command staff.
