Managing anger and violence in our homes, communities, schools and workplace has taken on new definitions and implications. Anger spans across generational, social, cultural and geographical borders. In business, CEO’s, human resource managers, labor relations attorneys and customer service managers are realizing that managing anger and having the ability to “keep your cool” is essential to • Better customer service • Customer satisfaction • Solid trusting coworker relationships • Teamwork • Productivity • Problem solving • Workplace safety • Employee retention • Physical and mental health Understanding distinctions between assertive vs. aggressive communication and good listening skills are necessary components of anger free communication; being able to “walk away” and “let go” of unpleasant situations instead of expressing anger in unacceptable ways. Distinctions among different communication styles are explored and role-plays may be included in the workshop. Skillful anger and stress management techniques are taught and practiced in our seminars with coaching and training for appropriate communication skills necessary for managing anger.
