Someone or Something Make You Angry At Work?
Sometimes things happen that really get on our nerves and we respond by becoming angry at work. There are a number of ways to control anger, the first being that we should recognize that no one can “make us angry at work.” We choose our emotional response to people or circumstances around us. As we attempt to live a life that is spiritually in line with God’s desire for our best life, we can benefit from the apostle Paul’s words in Ephesians 4:31 “Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ, God forgave you.” The point here is that if we commit to having the Holy Spirit lead our thoughts, we will be able to hit the pause button on anger because we have decided before-hand not to become angry at work. In following a better spiritual path, we become committed to being kind and gentle toward others.
Apologize When You Do Get Angry At Work
All of us make mistakes and lose our cool from time to time. If you have a blow up, just apologize for getting angry at work. Your co-workers will appreciate the fact that you recognize that this is not the most helpful response and they will hold you in higher esteem for owning up to your error. As a leader, there will be times when it is appropriate to be upset about mistakes or poor performance, however, a controlled reaction when communicating your dissatisfaction and your expectation of improved performance will be most effective. Most associates want to do a good job, so you will likely find that if you encourage them to do better while forgiving them for their past mistakes, they will will work hard to get it right. When you lead without getting angry at work, you will be more effective and will be closer to making the most of your one and only life – That’s OlyLife!
