Understand the Psychology Behind Defusing and Resolving Workplace Anger
We all feel angry at times. It can be an uncontrollable emotion, yet it is almost a taboo subject. We get very little guidance in our culture on how to deal with it, and the guilt or violence that may accompany it.
Is anger a bad thing? Not if you metabolize it and maximize the boost of adrenaline it brings.
Anger is often the initial reaction when perceived expectations are unmet. It might be an unmet expectation that everyone at work should automatically do the “right thing”, for instance, be punctual for work. You may also expect that people should have the skills and capabilities to perform the “right way”.

“I learnt that while it’s true that suppressing and ignoring anger is unhealthy, venting is no better. I now understand that anger is not something that has to be “let out” in an aggressive way in order to avoid blowing up: outbursts and tirades only fuel the fire and reinforce an existing anger problem.”
Dennis Alexander Wang, Changi Airport Group
“The one key takeaway that I’ll be sharing with my team members is that people can’t always control the situation they are in or how it makes them feel, but they can control how they express their anger. And they can communicate their feelings without being verbally or physically abusive. Even if someone is pushing their buttons, they always have a choice about how to respond.”
