Keeping your temper in check in the workplace

By Alaya Boykin

The workplace can get a little hot and heavy sometimes. Dealing with different personalities and attitudes is part of the day-to-day routine, but at times you may get more than you bargained for. After all, you’re there to simply do your job, right?

As professionals (or should I say adults?), we should be able to handle ourselves accordingly in most situations, especially when it comes to communicating and working with others. In some circumstances, other people’s resistance and mind-sets get in the way of the real goal: to get the job done.

Have you ever gone off on someone in the workplace? What do you do to keep your composure? If you believe that someone is genuinely wrong, does that give you license to tell them how you really feel no matter what?
