Part VI: Listen to Other People’s Anger > Anger and Your Working Relationships

Chapter 22. Anger and Your Working Relationships

Whether you are the boss or the employee, anger on the job is not acceptable when it is handled inappropriately. The inability to handle anger on the job can lead to a whole list of consequences—all bad. These can include termination, early retirement, being passed up for a promotion, reduced productivity and a poor working climate. Some job provocations to be aware of are:

  • Deadlines. Pressure to have a project completed when there is little time can create stress, and stress can lead to anger situations.

  • Criticism. Anger can occur when you've worked hard but face what you feel to be unjust criticism.

  • Passed over. When you don't get the promotion you've worked hard for and felt you deserved, you may find yourself angry.

  • Incompetence. When you count on your employees or co-workers to do a good job and they don't, you are likely to be upset.

  • Rumors. Being the victim of false rumors or jealousy is a common source of anger around the workplace.

  • Overworked. Having too much to do or being given duties that are over your head can cause frustration and anger.
