Bachmann Pools and Spas selling new and used hot tubs, swim spas, pools and saunas in the Fitchburg and Madison, WI area publishes “3 Tips for Better Communication.”
Fred Bachmann, President of Bachmann Pools and Spas says, “Good communication makes life easier, relationships stronger and business more efficient. Reflecting on how communications skills work can lead to a better life.”
Here are three tips for better communication.
Choose the Location Wisely – Choosing the right time and place for serious discussion is a big part of effective communication. For instance, it isn’t a great idea to try and talk to a teen about serious issues when they are getting ready to go to an event or talking to their friends. It would be unwise to try and communicate complex ideas or plans when the family is involved in media or playing with gadgets.
Even the “family table” which is often considered an important element in good communication is likely to produce superficial chatter about the day’s events and things. There are too many other distractions, even at mealtime. Rather, set aside a spot in the home that is calm and peaceful.
Creating an ideal communication and gathering area is easy. Install a Fitchburg hot tub in the backyard and surround it with peaceful lighting for an added element of luxury and serenity. Many portable spas come with mood lighting for instant atmosphere around the hot tub.
Hot tubs are enticing and fun, drawing the family together without outside distractions. Warm, comforting water and soothing massage jets allow people to relax, even during difficult discussions.
The Body Reflects Interest – Don’t forget to pay attention to what is being said when nothing is being said. Even when a person isn’t talking during a conversation, their body can relate many emotions, moods, feelings and attitudes.
Avoid crossing arms, slouching or fiddling with clothing. These movements convey feelings of disinterest or anger. Some familiar actions, such as stroking the chin can actually make others think a person is judging their words or thoughts. Faking a smile or nodding in compliance when it isn’t heart-felt may appease the speaker, but most of the time, people can tell when an action or look isn’t true.
Conflict Destroys Communication – When speaking, attempt to avoid negative words or angry comments, even when disagreeing with another viewpoint. Heating up a discussion to the point of anger will only cause others to shut down and stop listening while they argue their own side. No one really wins
To encourage residents to check out the benefits of owning their own hot tub, Bachmann’s will be providing free hot tub test soaks for the entire month. They do recommend, however, that people wanting to schedule their free 30-minute wet test call them ahead of time to reserve their spot.
