Anger Management Is More Than Just Anger Management

 It is not unusual for someone to call and cancel their first appointment a few times before finally arriving to my office. After all who REALLY wants to come to Anger Management?    Anger Management is a process that goes far beyond dealing with just anger. Anger Management is not therapy however it is incredibly therapeutic.  In actuality it is performance management.  If you are not getting something that you want more than likely you are doing a behavior that is preventing your success. It is a behavior that happens over and over again in one or more aspects of your life and usually with the same result. Maybe you don't know how to stop the behavior. Maybe you don't really know what to do. Maybe you can't exactly put your finger on what the behavior is. Anger may be how you arrive to my office because you're acting out.  Granted acting out is an issue for you.  However your anger is under the umbrella of something bigger. Let's find out what that is and many things will positively reconfigure around you.

Optimism At It's Best


A Little Information About Anger In The Workplace

Anger is a natural human emotion.  We are all wired for it. It is okay to get angry.  Anger is actually a tool for protection and survival. Anger protects us in harmful situations by disconnecting us from our reason. This is popularly known as "fight" or "flight". In professional environments however neither reaction is constructive. Both reactions drive us from our work and drain our energy, and then lead to feelings of resentment and frustrations.

Disagreeing with someone in the workplace is not uncommon however there is "appropriate" and "inappropriate" ways to pound out your differences or disagreements.  Anger appropriately used can move you forward with your colleagues and even affect a better outcome of a project.  The most necessary skill needed is assertive communication and compromise.  Inappropriate anger in the workplace particularly when the behavior is repeated can affect moral, attendance and productivity and lastly probably land you in an anger management program.
