As Maya Angelou once said, “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” This rings especially true in the workplace.

Entrepreneur.com offers advice on condescending behaviors to avoid in the office. Some obvious yet common offenses include explaining things that people already know and backhanded compliments like “wow, you actually did great.”

In building authentic relationships, it’s important to be aware of how your comments are received. Sometimes, what you think is a joke or quirky personality can create a negative environment and undermine relationships.
