Dr. Lillian Glass talks Holiday Party "Body Language" 

Dr. Lillian Glass

Dr. Lillian Glass is a world-renowned speaker and author on Body Language and Interpersonal Communication.  She frequently appears as a guest on Nancy Grace (CNN), Bill O'Reilly (Fox News), and the Today Show (NBC).
JNP:  Say you are the "New Gal" at your spouse's holiday party and you want to project an image of confidence without seeming arrogant.  What is the key?
Dr. Glass:  Be interested, not interesting.  Make the other person in the conversation feel like they are the center of the universe by letting them open up about themselves.  If someone talks about how they love to ski, ask followup questions, like  "What kind of skis do you have, What are your favorite slopes, etc."  When you show legitimate interest in the person in front of you, and you are a good listener and responder, and if you genuinely like someone, they will love you back! 
JNP:  Are you against pursuing an office romance at the party?
Dr. Glass: Definite pros and cons.  When you work with someone, you get to watch them in action, and maybe you can get a better sense of each other and your compatibility before you enter into a relationship.  But things sometimes don't pan out, and you should have an "Out Strategy" or an understanding that if things go sour, there are no hard feelings and ruined careers.  One more thing...boss-subordinate relationships should probably never exist.  It can cause so many problems and is not worth the risk...especially at a Holiday Party!

Frank's Free Advice

Frank Goldstein
Helpful Party Hints

According to JNP's resident expert, Frank Goldstein, when estimating dance floor space professional event planners consider an event succesful if 80% of the guests are dancing. Many planners feel that the dance floor should be 9 sq. ft (3' x 3' square) per couple dancing. A dance floor for 150 people should be 675 sq. ft. or a 24' x 27' dance floor (A close approximation using the standard 3' x 3' squares found in most facilities.) The stage should have an approximate 6' x 4' area per musician. A 5 piece band will want a minimum of 20' x 6' area. Depth can be added to the stage instead of length. A 16' x 12' stage will also accomodate a 5 piece band.
