Anger is one of the strongest emotions that can be felt, it is also a universal feeling that no-one is exempt from. Anger in the workplace is common, and while it can be something that stunts a workplaces productivity, confronting it and managing anger effectively is something few individuals, organisations, and societies do well.
Anyone who can productively confront a colleague about a negative attitude, no matter what the subject of the emotion is, can increase a team’s chance of success and minimise the chance of a conflict becoming destructive.
