WHAT TO DO TO MAKE IT A HAPPY HOLIDAY FOR YOUR PARTNER AT WORK

A very astute client gave me some good advice that I thought I would pass along.

These are some simple things to help your partner/spouse be more comfortable when you are in the work environment.

DO’s

  • Make your spouse look good when around their work peers.
  • Defer to your spouse when in their presence.
  • Remember that your spouse is with his co-workers and industry associates a lot of time and their income/career satisfaction depends on these relationships, so choose your words carefully.
  • Be careful about sharing personal information or anecdotes (such as nicknames, habits, quirks, hobbies, etc), even if you think they “humanize” your spouse.

DON’T's

  • Ask to be included in work activities…..your spouse will ask you to join them if it is appropriate.
  • When in doubt, listen rather than speak.
  • Ask for anything free or preferential (merchandise, inclusion in events, perks, etc)

 

Thank you to this client and all my wonderful clients. Have a Successful New Year!
