Managing Anger and Stress at the Workplace

Anger and stress if not probably managed can be destructive to us in our personal or social lives. As such, should we learn to get rid of them? Amazingly, the answer is “No” as anger and stress are part of human survival instincts. If we do not experience anger and stress, we are not alive.
