Tempering Your Temper

My post on the importance of restraining your temper at work is up at U.S. News & World Report.

I've found your words "peace over justice" the true bottom line when it comes to angry disagreements. When you lose your temper, the attention is to your behavior not to the situation that caused the outburst. The solution to the actual problem is left behind. And the object of your anger just becomes resentful - no help to you down the line.

You're right. The display of anger can divert attention from the cause of the outburst. That's usually a mistake.
