There have been many people that have been tasked with putting a Christmas party together. There have been a lot of them that wanted to do the best job they could and started with planning a great party. One guy thought that the best they could do was a pot-luck with everyone and he proceeded to take up that course of action. It was a fairly small, 75 person firm and he wanted to capitalize on the family size and the warm feelings that Christmas is famous for and that was the way it was going to go. His direct report mentioned that there was an adequate budget for something a little bit more ‘out-going’; however, the man was fixed in his thoughts that this idea of his was the one to undertake.
The company Christmas party is thrown during a time that has all of the employees and their families thinking about the reason for the season! They have the things in mind that make them want to spend time with their extended families and all of the things that they are working to pay for. The man assigned to the Christmas party did very little to manage the affair ahead of time. He had a lot of things to consider for this party, even if he really wanted everyone else to bring the food. There was the drinks, the entertainment, the gifts for the kids that were present at every other Christmas party the company has ever had! He had a lot of work and he wanted to ‘get back to the way things were!’. His dreams of the perfect family centered party were just that, dreams, because he didn’t get everything put together. Oh, the party happened, less than one half of everyone showed up and they didn’t stay long!
