Anger is normal and healthy emotion that helps us instinctively detect and respond to a threatening situation. More than this, when it is properly channeled, it can be a powerful motivating force - we all know how hard we can work to remedy an obvious injustice. It can also be an emotion that gets out of control, leading to stress, distress, unhealthiness and unhappiness. Uncontrolled anger can seriously harm your personal and professional life, because it can become incredibly destructive - to yourself and the people around you. And in a modern workplace that often demands trust and collaboration, it can cause great damage to working relationships.
