Family matters. As the experience of a leader will help to settle the conflict over the new year’s table
The selected management techniques will be useful at dinner with family and friends.
New year’s eve traditionally is a time for meeting family and friends, the holiday kind and friendly. But without careful management of meal can turn into major conflict or civil strife. And there actually can be many: the mother does not like how to cook a duck, your wife, sister against another will be watching “twist of fate”, comrade torment by talking about politics, and my father will necessarily have to blow firecrackers when all are going to sleep. What leadership skills will help you to reduce the opportunity of the scandal to a minimum?
The choice of guests
The first step on the way to minimize conflicts is the deliberate recruitment of staff (in our case, guests). If you know that one person not everyone likes, then maybe its worth a call separately for Christmas. If not invite is impossible, for example, is your mother-in-law, it is better not to provoke tension and not to plant next to conflicting people (like the office). For example, the son with a fresh tattoo and grandmother.
To read the summary
I recommend to read the “summary” of their guests. Too many questions and awkward situations will disappear, if you know in advance who does not drink alcohol and who is a vegetarian. So your exclusive guests will not attract the attention of others, unhappy sitting with an empty plate and telling everyone what’s going on. And it is better in addition to the traditional salad to prepare “salad Olivier recipe Maasai”. Tell me what recipe you share the student PFUR for the New year at the airport. And let this Olivier will be vegetarian. So interesting and like.
