Anger in the Workplace
If you blow up at disappointments, rage at inconveniences, or bark at others’ mistakes, then you probably recognize your anger management problem. Are you still struggling to get a handle on it? The change you want entails education about anger, self-awareness, and triggers; practicing alternative responses; logging attempts at change; practicing response tactics; apologizing to others when you slip up; and measuring progress. Anger responses become engrained, which is why a programmatic approach is often needed to gain control in the long term. Talk to your EAP or a counselor to discuss the pieces above and how to turn them into a plan that will give you results.
