Anger in the Workplace: Executive Coaching/Anger Management For High Profile Clients

Anger in the Workplace: Executive Coaching/Anger Management For High Profile Clients

Posted On: November 24th, 2014

Anger is a normal human emotion that is secondary to stress, anxiety, depression or some other primary emotion.

Anger is not a pathological disorder. Therefore, it is not listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental and Nervous Disorders (DSM-IV). According to the American Psychiatric Association, anger is a lifestyle issue and not in the domain of mental illness.

There are seven signs that anger is problematic in a person’s life:

  •  When anger is too frequent
  • When anger is too intense
  • When anger last too long
  • When anger leads to aggression
  • When anger destroys relationships
  • When anger impacts health
  • When anger risks career derailment

The slow economy is unprecedented in its impact on professionals from most (if not all) employment sectors. For high-income groups such as physicians, attorneys, entertainers and executives, loss of income and or status triggers stress, depression, anger and, often, person-directed aggression.

For the first time in the history of Executive Coaching for Anger Management, the number of volunteer and mandated referrals are coming from H.R. Managers, risk management professionals, intimate partners and physician well-being committees nationwide.

Previously, most referrals for anger management came from the courts and the criminal justice system. 
As high-income professionals experience the positive effects of the skill enhancement components of executive coaching/anger management, they refer or recommend coaching for colleagues, direct reports or family members.

Anderson Anger Management Curriculum is Evidence Based

  • The Anderson & Anderson Anger Management Curriculum is Evidenced BasedThanks to the work of Dr. Steven Sinert, Nevada Anger Management, we now have a study that shows the results of Pre and Post Tests using the Conover Assessment with 200 randomly selected clients. A summary of this study is listed below:

    This study was undertaken from my private anger management practice utilizing the before and after averages using the Conover Assessment Examination which measures the following parameters:

    1) Interpersonal Assertion: How good or comfortable the individual feels about telling others about their thoughts, feelings and behaviors in dealing with others.

    Average pre-training score: 3.03; Average post-training score: 5.30 (74.91% increase)

    2) Empathy: How the individual views their current skill and ability to sense, understand and accept another person’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

    Average pre-training score: 4.38 Average post-training score: 5.35 (22.14 % increase)

    3) Stress Management: Shows the individual’s skill in managing stress and worry.

    Average pre-training score: 3.97 Average post-training score: 5.05 (27.20% increase)

    4) Aggression: The amount to which an individual uses a communications style that violates or offends or takes away another’s rights, thoughts or feelings.

    Average pre-training score: 2.82 Average post-training score: 0.62 (78.01% decrease)

    5) Interpersonal Deference: A measurement of the degree to which an individual uses a personal communication style that tends to yield or give in to someone else, lets others have their way or gives their rights to others.

    Average pre-training score: 2.61 Average post-training score: 1.71 (34.48% decrease)

    6) No measurement of an individual’s motivation was included in this study. It is recognized however that the greater the motivation the more likely the individual will be successful in achieving success.

    Conclusion: From these findings it would appear that this Anger Management Program is very effective in increasing assertive skills, empathy, stress management and decreasing aggression and deference. These results are in no way a guarantee that any specific individual will respond the same way; however, they are a good indication that, on average, most individuals with anger issues will have a positive outcome from taking an anger management program taught by a Certified Anger Management Provider using the Anderson & Anderson model.

The Anderson & Anderson model of anger management is the most effective and widely recognized curriculum in the world. This model, which has been featured in Los Angeles Times Magazine, focuses on enhancing emotional intelligence and assertive communication while introducing behavior strategies for identifying and managing anger and stress. Our certification training and approved provider list are the industry standards and dominate the internet.

A demonstration and discussion of the Pre and Post Test will be conducted. This one-day training is designed for Nurses, School Counselors/Psychologists, Substance Abuse Counselors, Case Managers, HR Managers, Clinicians, Probation Officers, as well as staff from group homes, and agencies serving families and youth. This curriculum is currently being used in school districts in Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento, Concord and San Diego, as well as school districts in Texas and Louisiana. In addition, probation departments in Arizona, Kansas, California and Texas use this model.

On the Second day, Adult Anger Management will be examined. A demonstration of the Pre and Post Test will be conducted with a discussion of its usefulness. “Gaining Control of Ourselves,” in conjunction with experiential exercises and videos, will be used to initiate the participants to this intervention. Most major corporations have accepted this model for use by H.R. and EAP Managers.

The Third day of Training is Organizational Emotional Intelligence/Anger Management. This training is designed to prepare the participant to offer workshops or presentations regarding anger management, civility or emotional intelligence a small group format. This is rapidly becoming one of the most requested interventions in anger management. This training has been conducted for Kaiser Permanente of Southern California the Riverside County Medical Association as well as the Illinois State Bar Association.

What is Anger?

Anger Management

Actually, What is  anger?

It is a natural emotion that can be controlled. When that happens, this emotion will revert back to normal behavior. However, with such disorder in us controlling our emotion, some people may react harshly thus giving problems to people around them.

At times, relationships between family, relatives and friends are often affected because people are not able to control their burst of anger. The way the person think is often the most important factor as you want to re-align their attitudes and thoughts. By doing that, you are dealing with anger management to improve your life.

How can anger management help in one’s life?

Not just any ordinary anger management, but applied anger management, people will try to limit the amount of verbal swearing and the adjusting the talking that may considered as threatening.

When matters get worse, and people got angry, the tend to be over-dramatic and irrational to the matter. Their mind are only thinking of getting themselves noticed and heard.

Before matters got worse, they became very paranoid and suspicious. As most people took anger management, they should take this opportunity to identify the anger triggers and try to make the person think differently.

With applied anger management, we want the participants to think of their actions that the society can accept. These management programs will make the person examine what behaviors they project that is acceptable and unacceptable.
