This paper explains that anger in the workplace is the aftermath of complaints against the organization and more personal complaints, such as complaints against a co-worker, an immediate supervisor or a subordinate. The author points out that, to avoid problems of anger in the workplace, management must recognize the existence of diversity among its employees and must avoid dominance by individuals and sub-groups. The paper relates that barriers to the prevention of anger are lack of (1) trust, which is portrayed through truthfulness, sincerity and commitment; (2) culturally and personality sensitive leadership and (3) explicit knowledge.
