How to Control Temper at WorkPlace

On your first job, your ideas and dreams help you chisel the ideals rather than worrying about the reality.  These ideas and dreams will eventually shape your personality for the rest of your career.

Some even undergo a complete personality change right after college because they have found the industry they want to work for. They become idealistic and often push for things they wanted to happen no matter what the cost is.

More often than not, they become temperamental as they always get angry when they see something wrong in their job.  Although pointing out things that are wrong in your office environment is ok, the way it should be conveyed should never be drastic that it would cause scandal.

Fresh graduates are often susceptible to what they feel and as a result, they become feisty about the things they want to happen in the office.  Again pushing change for the good is accepted but being too angry about it is not a good way to implement change especially if you are just a fresh graduate.

Even if you are hired as a manager in the company, being a temperamental newbie will never get you places. You are ruining your career right from the start.

Addressing Temper

Temper is something that cannot be controlled overnight. You have to slowly work on it until it is completely gone. The bad thing about temper is that you do not know if you have it and admitting you have a temper could be difficult. You are the only person who cannot see this since your outbursts are based on your emotions.

That is why; the first step in dealing with bad temper is to admit they do have some problems with their emotions. Once you know you have the problem, implementing the steps in stopping your emotional outbursts should be a lot easier.

The best way to control your temper is to be aware of yourself all the time. Since you know you have the tendency to burst out emotionally, you need to check yourself all the time to prevent something from happening.

The classic trick of counting to ten when you see something wrong in your office space actually works. By counting, you slowly eradicate your anger as you think more carefully about the situation. After reaching ten, you will feel better and would even have a viable answer to the problem.

Proper Authority

When you see something is wrong, you just do not go barging to the person who made the mistake and confront him or her about it. Although it could happen, there are times that you are not the one that should reprimand or you do not have any right to reprimand at all.

If you see any problem, be sure to contact the right person who is naturally the supervisor or the manager of the person. Even if the problem is not about the person but on the process, the right person has to be addressed. Be calm and present your situation so that it could be properly heard and could even become vital information for the company.
