Optimizing the value of anger

Strategic growth in the presence of emotions

 

Anger is a relevant topic for our world today.

2020 Gallup short term poll   

Gallup: What's the World's Emotional Temperature?

“ANYBODY can become angry, that is easy; but to be angry with the right person, and to the right degree, and at the right time, and for the right purpose, and in the right way, that is not within everybody's power, that is not easy.”   Aristotle


Go ahead and be angry. You do well to be angry—but don’t use your anger as fuel for revenge. The Apostle Paul, Ephesians 4:26


The emotion of anger can fuel growth, just like the emotion of passion can fuel vision, and the emotion of happiness can fuel productivity!


The five rights of Aristotle:


#1: The right person


#2: The right degree


#3 The right time


#4 The right purpose


#5The right way


Can we be angry and grow as leaders at the same time?

My response is, “Yes. If we choose to engage in the hard work of using anger for the benefit of growth and development of ourselves and those we influence.”
