Anger Management – Emotional Intelligence
September 04, 2016
Webster’s definition of Anger is: ”a strong feeling of displeasure and belligerence aroused by a real or supposed wrong.” Anger is a normal, basic human emotion to express our negative feelings. Everyone, at one time or another, experiences anger.
The real problem in the workplace occurs when Anger:
- is too frequent, too long or too intense
- leads to aggression
- destroys relationships
- impacts health
- derails careers
Today, with the increased attention to workplace safety, it has become an issue that Management and Human Resource professionals cannot ignore.
Anger is not a pathological disorder. The way we express our Anger is a learned behavior and, as such, can be unlearned. Through coaching and modification with practice, acceptable behaviors can be learned. It is just like learning and then practicing a new set of skills. The result: acceptable expressions of anger become the new behavior pattern.
The areas of APC’s coaching focus are:
- Understanding Anger: the physical and emotional triggers.
- Communication: appropriately expressing yourself and listening to others.
- Stress: how to develop a stress resistant personality.
- Emotional Intelligence: understanding our own emotions and recognizing their impact. EI Assessment ( EQ-I-2.0)
