About the course
Graca Machel, humanitarian and wife of former President Nelson Mandela, warned that South Africa is an “angry nation” teetering on the brink of “something very dangerous” if extreme levels of violence are not addressed.
We South Africans live under extreme levels of stress. Many of us do not know how to deal with anger and frustration. Misdirected anger is evident in:
- road rage incidents
- violence against women and children
- acts of criminality
- family feuds
- incidents at sports events
Unfortunately much of this anger is also expressed inappropriately in the workplace, leading to a breakdown of good interpersonal relationships and harmony in the workplace. Are your levels of anger appropriate in your management of people in the workplace? Are you able to control and direct your anger in the workplace in ways that are constructive and productive? Is anger an obstacle to your career development and growth?
