Overview/Description
Anger is a normal – and even healthy – emotion, rooted in the instinct for self-preservation. However, if not managed properly, our feelings and emotions can be very destructive.

In this course, you’ll explore how to manage your anger and your anger response. You’ll also explore the nature of anger, including its root causes and ways to use it positively in the workplace.
