Meetings are wonderful tools for generating ideas, expanding on thoughts and managing group activity. But this face-to-face contact with team members and colleagues can easily fail inspite of adequate preparation and effective leadership.
Ever attend a meeting, either at the office or at a conference center, where the room looked as uninspiring ? May be there was too much clutter, or the desks and chairs were unorganized. Or perhaps the room was too small or too big for the size of the group. Whatever the case, a poorly arranged conference room can end up as more of a distraction than a room of production and can severely affect the outcome of a meeting.
Sitting in a dull, lifeless conference room might not motivate even the highly talented individual to speak up and take action, leading to an unproductive & uncomfortable meeting.
For such reason, many conference centers and businesses in foreign & now in India have turned to vastu ( or feng shui) experts to create a room that inspires and fosters imagination and focus. The power of vastu, an ancient architecture has been creating harmony & creativity in the meeting place, improving productivity and helping participants to release their energy as well as their bright ideas.
By following the age-old practice of Vastu, you can create a meeting or conference room that not only looks better, but feels better too.
Important suggestions for business meeting:-
1. Colour selection makes a impression about organizational values and cultures. Sunny shades make workers feel cheerful.So use of orange, royal blue, yellow, white or green is highly recommended in the meeting room. Gray tends to emit negativity and can create that feeling in the atmosphere. The colour red represents aggression, untidiness and conflict. Choose a colour for your conference room that best represents your values and goals. It will also create a productive, happy meeting environment.
2. When it is internal office meeting, chief should occupy the chair at south west & other participants to face east or west direction. No person should be facing south while having inter office meeting. Higher chair is recommended for chief of the meeting.
3. When it is a business discussions, you should be facing the north for meeting to be a successful . This is recommended to get the benefits of earth magnetic forces traveling through north-south axis.
4. According to vastu an irregular shaped object gives off an irregular shaped energy pattern. This concept was known by the ancient people. Square or rectangular shape emits organized positive flow of the energy. Hence the conference table in rectangular or square shape is highly recommended according to the vastu science. Such shape represents the stability and growth.
