Anger Management at work

Request more details:

Description:
One of the paradoxes of anger is that it can often rouse people from apathy to action and generate innovative solutions to problems. However, it is a destructive force that results in greater difficulties. Every problem resolved using anger can be more skilfully, permanently and constructively solved without it. In organisations, anger can erode trust, diminish morale and motivation and undermine collaboration and team relationships. Over time, anger can sabotage strategic plans and create a culture of naming, shaming and blaming. The challenge for those who habitually resort to anger to get attention, achieve results and seek assistance is to recognise the behaviour and develop a strategy to work effectively using more positive behaviours.
Prerequisites:
The participants will recognise that anger management is a life and professional skill that can be mastered. They will appreciate the benefits to themselves of developing positive working relationships and how also how it affects productivity and morale.

While accepting that there will always be sources of antagonism in the workplace, they will develop alternative responses to these situations or people.
