Anger is Healthy. Aggression is Unacceptable.
It’s how folks choose to express anger that leads many astray. Anger is arousal in the body caused by having your boundaries crossed, and from the perception of not having your needs met. It can be well-managed…if you are willing!
To be aggressive is unacceptable, unless you are saving your children from imminent death by a bear attack!
The difference between being assertive and being aggressive is “how our words and behavior affect the rights and well-being of others”.*
Are you aware of how your words and behavior affect the rights and well-being of others when you are angry?
That’s anger management!
WORK & TEAM SOLUTIONS
Do you know how to effectively manage your anger, or other people’s? Most people do not. They run from it, stuff it, or, believe that venting is actually healthy. Big mistake. Research shows that venting anger does only one useless thing: it increases the frequency of venting!
For health, productivity, relationships, and team development, anger management skills are essential. Learn to manage your own anger and know what to do when it’s coming at you, too.
