Delphinium's Festive Fun and Fabulous Freebies

13th December 2022

Your Tuesday Picks are Ready!



With just over a week until Christmas, we decided to celebrate National Christmas Jumper Day last Thursday (8th December). We had our Zoom meetings with our best Christmas jumpers on and got into the spirit.

Our next bit of festive fun is our Christmas do in Manchester this week. As we’re only a small team, we’re joining up with the HR Dept Wilmslow for a joint Christmas outing.I hope you’re enjoying the festive season as much as we are!Here are this week’s top picks, and we’ve even included an early Christmas present.

Article of the Week: 20 Christmas Party Horror Stories

Keeping with the Christmas theme, we found this amusing article on Christmas party horror stories. But here’s the challenge…Hold all ten fingers (and thumbs) up on your hands and then read the article. Put one down for each party horror story you’ve witnessed, and see how many you have left by the end!

Check out the article here.

Eek! It’s here. I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it!! (I might even lose control and like it! 😂)

There’s no getting around it; things are hard – more challenging than usual at the moment, and it’s taking its toll on people. We need to be there for our teams and show empathy, but it can get tricky, particularly when it comes to difficult topics.So, I’ve created his guide to help you know what to say when you don’t know what to say.And it’s now available for you to download here!

What They Said

Our next live cohort of the Middle Manager Accelerator is coming up on 16th January 2023. So, I thought I’d share with you a piece of feedback from one of our MMA delegates:

“The Middle Manager Accelerator takes you down a path that you never knew existed. It opens your mind to new ways of thinking, which help build on your existing skills and use them in a better way. Difficult situations that you can face as a manager become easier to deal with, and this helps to take away a lot of the stress you can face on a daily basis. You will be challenged in a positive way, and the constructive feedback will help you to become better at what you do.”

If you’d like to learn more about the Middle Manager Accelerator, you can find the details here, and if you’d like any more information, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Have a great week, and I’ll be back next Tuesday with all the gossip from the Christmas party.

Kind regards,

Gemma 💜
