5. Use humor as a weapon. Well, not really a weapon so much as just an alternate way to get your message across. There is nothing like a sharp, snappy sarcastic comment to keep people in their place. After all, isn’t the work environment supposed to be fun? And, you have some great one-liners because your people give you so much material to work with. Teasing and making fun of people work well also. The added bonus is that this helps you find out who the smart ones are since they will be the ones who get your jokes. And if the others get upset, not to worry. It’s not your fault they don’t have a sense of humor.
