How do you conduct yourself at your corporate holiday parties? Thursday on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Holiday parties
Holiday parties

Tis the season for holiday parties, expected bonuses and over indulging. The time of year when individuals in corporate and private employment sectors have their annual holiday Christmas parties. A setting where you are sure to find out the “other side” of the people you work with, especially when alcohol is freely flowing. And when people start drinking and having a good time, it altars their personality, changes their attitude and boost their mood considerably. Have you witnessed these transformations from your co-workers and colleagues?

This is what happens when you over-indulge, over-indulging may be the number one cause of inappropriate remarks and behavior at these holiday office parties. Remember, you have to face all of these people when you go back to work, so it’s important to leave a good impression but some people don’t!!!!

Here are the following DON’T’s at your holiday party:

  • Find out before your office party what most people are wearing. You don’t want to show up in a casual outfit if everyone else is dressed to the nines. Make sure your spouse or date has this information.
  • Be conservative in your dress if you are a woman. Shockingly short dresses or low plunging necklines are not appropriate for this type of business occasion. So you don’t want to dress like a hooker.
  • Avoid drinking too much because you don’t want to embarrass yourself.
  • Take a cab home or use a designated driver if you have been drinking because you don’t want to drink and drive.

And we’ll discuss the rest of “Office party etiquette” on “Conversations Of A Sistah” this Thursday December 14th at 8:00 P.M.

So I’m inviting you to join me as I wind down my last two (2) shows of the year onConversations Of A SistahonConversations Live” at 8:00 PM. as we discuss how do you behave at your holiday parties?

As always, we certainly welcome your feedback on this topic here on the CEO’s blog or you can email us at conversationsofasistah@readywriterproductioncompany.com

  9. It was December 24th on Hollis Ave in the dark
    When I seen a man chilling with his dog in the park
    I approached very slowly with my heart full of fear
    Looked at his dog, oh my God, an ill reindeer
    But then I was illin because the man had a beard
    And a bag full of goodies, 12 o’clock had neared
    So I turned my head a second and the man had gone
    But he left his driver’s wallet smack dead on the lawn
    I picket the wallet up then I took a pause
    Took out the license and it cold said “Santa Claus”
    A million dollars in it, cold hundreds of G’s
    Enough to buy a boat and matching car with ease
    But I’d never steal from Santa, cause that ain’t right
    So I’m going home to mail it back to him that night
    But when I got home I bugged, cause under the tree
    Was a letter from Santa and all the dough was for me

    D.M.C. :

    It’s Christmas time in Hollis Queens
    Mom’s cooking chicken and collard greens
    Rice and stuffing, macaroni and cheese
    And Santa put gifts under Christmas trees
    Decorate the house with lights at night
    Snow’s on the ground, snow white so bright
    In the fireplace is the yule log
    Beneath the mistle toe as we drink egg nog
    The rhymes you hear are the rhymes of Darryl’s
    But each and every year we bust Chrsitmas carrols
    (Christmas melodies)

    Run-D.M.C. :

    Rhymes so loud and prod you hear it
    It’s Christmas time and we got the spirit
    Jack Frost chillin, the orchas out?
    And that’s what Christmas is all about
    The time is now, the place is here
    And the whole wide world is filled with cheer

    D.M.C. :

    My name’s D.M.C. with the mic in my hand
    And I’m chilling and coolin just like a snowman
    So open your eyes, lend us an ear
    We want to say

    Run-D.M.C. :

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  20. For parties that begin shortly after the work day ends, do show your flair for understanding the difference between office and party attire by adding a special something. For men, this might mean slipping on a cashmere sweater with your dress slacks or adding a jacket. For women, bring a small evening handbag instead of lugging your usual work tote along to the party, add more make-up, or some jewelry.

  24. That Tracy Bell has met some strange people in her travel along life’s highway. Where do you meet women who will take their under garments (bra and underwear) OFF at a Christmas Party? WoW! You’re NASTY if you do something like that.

    Tracy made great points on her show last esp. about drinking. Never get so lose or so comfortable that you drink too much at a party amongst your co-workers then make a fool of yourself in the process., Not professional. Not cool. Let’s keep her top “10” in mind when partying with ya co-workers this Christmas season.
