2 Hours Dual CLE & 2 Hours General CME
Anger is a universal experience. Dogs get angry, bees get angry, and so do humans. You don’t have to be a psychologist to know that managing anger productively is something few individuals, organizations, and societies do well. Yet research tells us that those who do manage their anger at work are much more successful than those who don’t. The professional who can productively confront his/her colleagues about their negative behavior increases their collective chance of success as well as minimizes the destructive effects of conflict. The mediator who can defuse the angry party not only helps the party to focus and be more solution-oriented, but makes their own day less problematic. This course is designed to help give you and your professionalism that edge.
