#106  Anger and conflict are big issues in today’s workplace. Indeed, too often someone at work expresses anger, or gets into conflicts, in ways that range from inappropriate to high-risk. Such anger usually disrupts teamwork and lowers productivity. At times, it results in violence that can traumatize the workplace.

Whatever the manifestations, angry employees can create an environment that is negative, hostile, and frightening. As a result, many employers face legal pressures to better deal with such volatile environments.

Furthermore, productive employees recognize that such a workplace is no fun; many leave for better managed work environments.

So just how angry is your workplace?

– How do you as either a manager or employee deal with anger and conflict?
– Can you identify the causes of anger?
– Do you avoid taking appropriate actions that could lead to permanent solutions?
– Are you familiar with eight appropriate ways to deal with anger in the workplace?

Have you formulated short-term, ad hoc solutions or are you dealing with anger in a systematic, long-term manner?

Written by one of the world’s leading experts on workplace anger and violence, this ground-breaking book identifies the hidden signs of anger and conflict as well as outlines key skills for creating a more positive and productive workplace. Demonstrating that behavioral changes are both necessary and possible, Dr. McClure reveals eight types of anger found in many workplaces:

  1. Acted-Out
  2. Rigid
  3. Unconnected
  4. Escapist
  5. Self-Centered
  6. Shocking
  7. Undercover
  8. Strange

She then examines each type in reference to seven skills both managers and employees need to develop and use for better managing anger and conflict.

Extremely well organized and illustrated with over 50 behavioral models, here’s the book that addresses one of the most important issues affecting productivity and retention. Whether you’re a manager, supervisor, employee, or temp, this book will show you the best and easiest ways to handle your manager’s, co-workers’, and subordinates’ anger as well as your own!
