Putting Anger to Good Use

an anger be positive? In the right situations, you can put it to good use. Anger has negative effects: on your health, relationships and your work. But anger can also signal that something is wrong in the way a team is working or an organization is structured.

Expressing anger

It’s all about how anger is expressed. We usually associate anger with something negative. Someone has done something bad to you or let you down or the system needs to be fixed and leaves you frustrated that you can’t achieve your goals.

But changing the way you express your frustration and disappointment can have positive effects. It can enhance your motivation and that of others you work with. It can help to increase productivity by spurring people on to do more and do it better. And it can improve insight — showing you how something can be changed so it supports your progress toward a goal.
