Excellent post, Diego. You've pointed out something important here. Sarcasm squelches creativity and innovation and far worse. It's demoralizing to employees. Let's understand that people do not enjoy being ridiculed. Even if an idea doesn't have legs, why use sarcasm? It's far better to pull one element of possibility from it and suggest ways to build on that. The reasons why the idea won't work can still be pointed out. That's called constructive criticism. A positive response helps people to reorient their thinking and lets them know their ideas may not always hit the mark, but they themselves are valued.
