It’s that time of year again. Time for festivities and families and all those get-togethers. Almost everyone’s calendar fills up with those events, and it’s a good time to remember some effective communication skills for your Four Sisters!
Handling the Details
For those Prink Up Sisters, Katie and Tina, remember to enjoy the feeling of the season! Yes, you can see past all the details of what gifts you need to get and which party you have to attend on which night to remember the joy and happiness the season brings.
For the Prink Down Sisters such as Stacey and Gina do try to make an actual list. It really does help. Find the easiest way for you to stay on top of the details. Get some help with those decorations by enlisting your loved ones. Open up the communication lines and be honest about it.
Surviving the Get-togethers
For those Sashay Right Sisters, Tina and Stacey, this is the time of year for you to thrive! Party out to your heart’s content. Events every night, if you want. For those Sisters Sashaying Left, Katie and Gina, you can find those tricks for surviving.
Since I’m a Gina, I know I can take 10 minutes time out during a party to walk around alone and re-invigorate myself from the solitude. I have to do it some times, if there are LOTS of Tina/Stacey folks at the event.
Make Room for the Giving
This is the season of giving and getting. Take some time to think about how you can give to those other Sisters around you. Can you help your Gina friends feel more at ease at your party? How can you help Katie with some details she has to take care of before the big night? Giving doesn’t always have to be wrap with a bow. It can be those thoughtful offerings of effective communication.
Above everything else during this season, I wish you continued love, joy, success, and effective communication.
