Working Through Rage: How to Deal with Anger at the Office - Presented by Dr. Ryan Martin.
It’s normal and healthy to experience anger at work. From frustration over a malfunctioning printer to coworkers who fail to meet expectations to a boss who treats us poorly, we endure the same sorts of unfairness, mistreatment, and blocked goals at work as anywhere else. So how can we deal with that anger productively without damaging relationships or disrupting our career success. This talk will explore why people get mad, how we can manage that anger productively, and how we can deal with anger expressed at us from other. Built into that discussion will be an exploration of recent research regarding topics related to gender and anger, social media anger, and more.
