This Thanksgiving, will you be a guest or a host?
A good guest shows due gratitude and appreciation to the host. But as a guest, you have much less power.
A host manages the entire experience for the guests. And a good host ensures that the guests feel welcomed, satisfied, and content.
If the evening is a success, it is the host who takes credit.
From the Green Room: When you speak, be the host - not the guest. Rather than begin your speech by thanking the audience for inviting you, begin by welcoming them to an experience.
