You may very well be an Angry Manager!!

""So what should I do?""

First and foremost: Pay attention to the signs of anger as they appear. Knots in stomach. Clenching hands. ""Seeing red"". Tensing up of the body. These are all warning signs that may come well before your anger actually expresses itself. This is the time to stop yourself before your anger affects others and yourself.

So how to help yourself help others? Here are our Top Ten Tips for Anger Management:

1. Think before you speak. What are you about to say? And how will it affect people around you? Give yourself a few seconds to figure this out.
2. Get some exercise. A brisk walk around the block or a quick run will do wonders for your equanimity.
3. Take a timeout. It's not just for kids! Put yourself in the corner for a while.
4. Focus on the physical sensations of anger. Focus on the way it's making you feel, and this will actually put your mind at east.
5. Stretch, roll or massage physical points of tension, especially after doing #4.
6. Dance to the music! Put on your favorite jams and just move the anger away!
7. Use humor to release tension. The right joke at the right time helps cool everybody down.
    ***scrawled in the margin: ""Avoid ""your momma"" jokes from now on.""
8. Punch a pillow, relieve your anger on an inanimate object in private.
    ***scrawled in the margin: ""Shooting it also works
""
9. Stick with ""I"" statements. Beginning with yourself before talking about others will help stop you from purely blaming others for problems that may well be yours.
10. Count to 10.

And there you go! It's really that simple! With these ten easy tips you are GUARANTEED* to never have issues with anger again. You will find yourself happier and more relaxed boss, and your employees happier and more productive!
