Dealing With Anger


People, by their own experience, know the unwelcoming effects of anger on their physical and emotional stability, and the unexpected consequences of them being angry in some situations. Still, some people find it hard to control their anger.

Dealing with Anger

Plan before preaching

Before discussing anything sensitive topic or giving feedback, always be sure of the words that you use are appropriate and well-suited.

Talk to one at a time

Most people find receiving feedback in front of a group of people humiliating. They face too much embarrassment to focus on your message. Try to talk to one person at a time.

Talk to One at a Time

Choose your timing

Wait for a suitable time to provide feedback. Remember that feedbacks are given to help a person improve. He needs to be receptive at the time of conversation. Avoid giving feedback when he is stressed, worried, or tired.

Talk to-the-point

The person receiving the feedback must know which exact areas he needs to work on, so be precise in giving the feedback.

Mention the positives too

Techniques like the “Sandwich Feedback” where the feedback about negatives is sandwiched between two positive feedbacks ensure a person takes the feedback constructively.

Strengthen the relationship

Assure the person- in case he feels threatened while listening to the feedback- that irrespective of what the feedback is, you both will continue to share a cordial relationship. Learn to say ‘no’ where the other person gets persuasive.
