My client boasted in our first meeting, “Sarcasm is my hallmark. I can be brutal, but I make the point!” His survey data showed it was really hurting him.
Sarcasm is anger pushed through too small a hole. It is like a sword and others do not have a shield. Next time you have the perfect sarcastic statement, ask yourself, “Does this need to be said by me right now?” Your career will thank you for it.
