While improving one's ability to regulate feelings of anger is important, a person's workplace can also benefit from trainings related to anger control and emotional regulation. These trainings can help employees develop the emotional skills needed to cope with stress and frustrations. The development of these skills can improve their overall well-being, reducing the negative impacts of anger on mental and physical health. In addition, poorly expressed anger can hinder effective communication. Teaching employees how to express their feelings and concerns assertively, rather than aggressively, can lead to better teamwork, clearer communication, and more positive relationships with colleagues and supervisors.
