Water treatment options

Water treatment options

I grew up in California, and quite honestly, I never knew that there were different types of water.

I mean, water is water, right?

Then I moved to Southern Nevada.

I moved into a rental house, and all of the fixtures had this mineral and lime scale deposit on them. All of the faucets had it, and you could totally see it inside the dishwasher.

I thought they were just dirty.

So I cleaned them all and did not think about it. After about a week of taking showers, you could just feel it on your skin. So I decided to do some research. It turned out that hard water was a real thing. All of the forums recommended that I get a water softener to correct this problem.

I go to my neighborhood big box store and see about getting a water softener for the house.

I talked to one of the reps and he was very knowledgeable about water treatment appliances.

I picked one up based on the size of the house, purchased some salt, and I was on my way.

Overall it was a simple, straightforward process.

Then I started thinking. What happens when a disaster hits an area, and the water gets contaminated? Flooding due to hurricanes immediately came to mind. If an area is flooded, the water can definitely be tainted. If this happens, you do not want to drink it, take a shower in it, or use it for anything else.

If you are in an area that was flooded, you will need some type of filtration system to clean that water, so that you do not have to worry about any contaminates that may lurk in your water.

There are many companies put there that treat water, so be sure to research this in your area.

In 2017, Texas was hit with a massive hurricane, and these people will definitely need to look into water treatment. For example, they may need to do a web search for water softeners Cypress TX, or water softeners Katy TX, as these two cities were hit pretty hard.

Clean water, it is a basic necessity, and we all need this.

Performance Coaching Strategies

Performance Coaching Strategies

There may be instances in your life or career where there seem to be roadblocks on the path to fulfillment. I think we all have been there.

The most effective way to overcome these obstacles is to unlock your potential, whether it is personally or professionally.

A performance coach is a professional that is trained to help individuals improve their current performance. The success coach will guide you through a process to help you succeed.

Many businesses will bring in a performance coach to raise the performance level of certain teams within the organization. This is not an indictment of some of the individuals of the team. This is a team building activity to create a more cohesive unit.

Within a business, there will be high performing teams, and also some lower performing teams. A coach will usually focus on the lower performing groups to raise the level of their job effectiveness.

Here are some of the elements of a coaching session:

Build trust If the team members do not trust each other, they will not form a cohesive bond for optimal performance.

Define the issues A team will need to identify the issues that are keeping them from performing at a high level. Once the issues are known, then it will be easier to work those out.

Success coaching This is the part where the work teams are coached to succeed. Goals are set and the teams are responsible to achieve the benchmarks that are set.

Performance coaching is not a one-day course. Usually a professional is brought in for a week to ten days, so you can really optimize your team building.

Studies show that if the organizations invest in their employees, they will feel a sense of worth. In turn they will take pride in their job performance.

Karen Prince is a performance coach in the Netherlands, and she coaches teams in all types of businesses.
