Executive coaching for anger management
When you find yourself being disproportionately angry at work or have been given feedback that you are aggressive, demanding, argumentative or hot-headed, there is something to address. Although your anger may feel valid – at the office, in meetings, in the boardroom or any business setting – showing your temper isn’t the appropriate response. Appearing bolshy, overly critical or passive-aggressive may or not be the true reflection of how you are feeling but will have a detrimental effect on your business relationships and how you are viewed by clients, colleagues and your company as a whole. As well as teaching you ways to let off steam in a safe way, executive coaching for anger management would give careful consideration to the matters causing you to behave angrily and explore how you could better respond to them.
Anger is on the surface – other feelings lie beneath
Anger as a feeling rarely exists alone, there will be something else sitting right beneath it, keeping it fuelled. We might need to explore and evaluate together or you might be fully aware but avoiding tackling the issue. Feeling trapped, disappointed, fearful, insecure, overwhelmed or isolated are some of the feelings that frequently surface in coaching for anger management.
For those who never get angry
Many of us did not have good role models in how to manage anger well. Being in receipt of or even witnessing inappropriate anger can make us wary of our own responses and cause us to internalise our anger and never show it. Likewise, messages that anger is bad and arguments or conflict is wrong can set up a belief that we must always stand back, hold our piece and remain on the sidelines. This could negatively affect our professional progress and give rise to unhelpful feelings.
