Cut the cynical cracks — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
You think you’re funny. But your cynicism only undermines your authority and encourages employees to adopt the same negative attitude. Avoid sarcastic comments such as: “Next thing you know people will claim disability for a hangnail,” or, “It’s a miracle! You’re here on time today.” Speak clearly without the caustic edge.
