It is that time of year again… you’ve been invited to your companies holiday party.
Surviving or thriving at holiday parties doesn’t seem to ever get any easier.
We’ve got lots of suggestions here!
And, if you need a quick reference:
Starters: Need a topic to talk about? People LOVE to talk about themselves.
You can try something like “I am trying to figure out what to do for next year’s summer vacation – what’s your favorite vacation spot? Any recommendations?”
Stoppers: Politics – if you can, we’d highly recommend not to go there!
Stallers: In the middle of a conversation that’s not going well?
You can always use the bathroom as your friend. Excuse yourself, head to the bathroom for a quick moment, and then rejoin a different group.
Good luck and have fun!
