Duration: One Day: 9am - 4:30pm
Anger is a universal experience. Dogs get angry, bees get angry, and so do humans. You don’t have to be a psychologist to know that managing anger productively is something few individuals, organizations, and societies do well. Yet research tells us that those who do manage their anger at work are much more successful than those who don’t.
The co-worker who can productively confront his teammate about his negative attitude increases his team’s chance of success as well as minimizes destructive conflicts.
The customer service agent who can defuse the angry customer not only keeps her customers loyal but makes her own day less troublesome. This course is to help give you
and your organization that edge.

strategies they can use to cope. During this session, you will discuss these strategies and help participants customize them.

misunderstood. During this session, we will discuss the four-step message, listening
skills, questioning skills, and three keys participants can use to unlock the best in people.
During this session, participants will work in small groups to discuss passive,
manipulative, assertive, and aggressive behaviors.
To wrap up the day, we will look at some ways to help participants take control of
themselves and a situation to prevent becoming angry.
