On the Job and in Relationships

Anger does not work any better on the job than it does with family or friends. It is all too common for the Type-A personality to reach a stage of burnout. The outcome is the same for most: withdrawal, attacks, counterattacks, defensiveness and even paranoia. Those who do not manage anger in the office usually end up moving from department to department and job to job. They are less productive, unmotivated and often jealous of others. They place blame on others and quite often feed into office gossip. They take their frustration out on employees and co-workers and then carry it home.

Relationships become more defensive and distant. There seem to be fewer and fewer opportunities, and the highest price of all is isolation. Cynical attitudes toward others result in loneliness.
