By Marty Brenner, C.C.D.C. #104227

Humans possess a wide variety of emotions, ranging from love to hate and everywhere in between. While psychologists disagree about the exact number of emotions, most would agree emotions are either negative or positive.

Despite scientists’ attempts to put emotions into tidy categories, human emotions show varying shades of good and bad. Anger, generally considered a negative emotion, actually gives you the emotional power to overcome frightening or overwhelming obstacles, or to set clear boundaries of personal space. Repressed or poorly expressed anger, however, can become unhealthy. Bad anger, if left unaddressed for a long period of time, becomes an insidious parasite to your emotional well-being and your relationships with others. Click here to read more »

Workplace Anger

By Marty Brenner, C.C.D.C. #104227

The smallest show of support from a manager is a significant source for positive change in the workplace. According to a recent study performed by the Temple University’s Fox School of Business in Philadelphia, compassion is the more effective response to employee’s anger when compared with punishing the worker for speaking out. Researchers found that inappropriate responses to outbursts, like reprimanding or firing the worker, actually divert time and resources away from the underlying issue that prompted the deviant behavior in the first place. The study, published in the journal Human Relations, suggests expanding current guidelines on anger in the workplace to allow managers and co-workers to show compassion and support for the upset employee in a way that causes effective and positive changes in the workplace.
