Without wishing to appear a kill joy, company Christmas Parties are a mine field if you wish to maintain your reputation and personal brand. What you do in your own free time is your business, but when you are at work, working for a business or organisation, you want your managers and senior staff to trust you, and for you to be known for your good work and personality, not for how you behave when you are drunk!
There is a fine line between acceptable and non-acceptable behaviour at work - even at an office party. So my advice would be to err on the side of caution. If you want to have a good time, go to an nightclub or bar AFTER the office party to let your hair down.
In this week's Superstar Communicator podcast, I share an astonishing office party I went to, when I was a teacher. And I also give top tips to avoiding damaging your reputation at work.
