Don’t let anger cripple your career

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

A CEO feels his employees aren’t giving their all to the organization. His anger boils over into sarcasm. People bristle at the sight of him.

A division head hates another division head who “sabotaged” her plans for a new facility. She focuses on revenge, not on what’s best for the organization.

If you’re chronically angry, take these four steps to turn your leadership from negative to positive:
  1. Admit that you’re angry. It’s the first step toward controlling the problem.

  2. Accept that changing will be difficult.You can’t just say “OK, I’m not angry anymore.” Change will demand time, effort and help from others.

  3. Pinpoint who made you angry and how your anger makes you behave. You might notice a disconnect here. Example: You’re angry at your CEO, but you’re curt toward the people who report to you.

  4. Plan for positive action. Perhaps you can set out a plan to cooperate with a former “enemy” to reach key goals.
