September 2011 Monthly Meeting

Angry/Disruptive Executives

with Wally Wilkins, Ph.D




People have more reasons to get angry at work these days. Higher demands, fewer resources, time pressures and less personal control lead to greater frustration. Angry outbursts by leaders are particularly costly to organizations. Anger lowers morale, impedes individual performance, reduces team success, erodes health, creates a hostile work environment and reduces profits.

Fortunately, even chronically hostile people can learn to diminish their anger. By helping disruptive leaders focus on the one cause of anger that they can control 100%, they can dramatically reduce (even eliminate) workplace disruptions.

Through interactive exercises during this workshop, you’ll identify exactly what prompts angry episodesundefinedand what you can do about it. You can also learn how to nip your own irritations early so that you enjoy your work more and take much less aggravation home with you. (For additional benefits, take a risk and invite an aggressive/disruptive colleague to attend this workshop!)


In this session you will learn how to:

1. Identify the one cause of anger over which people have 100% control.

2. Pinpoint financial consequences of unresolved anger and disruptive conduct.

3. Learn the three steps to handle any unwanted event gracefully.

4. Learn the practical value of establishing the goal to eliminate angerundefinedlike the constructive goals of eliminating sexual harassment, workplace accidents and drugs in the workplace.
