Prevent your anger. If you are angry to the point that you cannot control it


Make sure that you can win the confrontation. The essential question that you need to ask is this: Who has got the upper hand?

If your adversary has the upper hand because he is the boss, the manager, the director, etc. do not get involved in useless discussions, avoid confrontation, let it go and move on: “Two do not fight if one does not want to.”

If you can confront that person and be honest, find the right place and time, explain the problem calmly, use the best style of communication in difficult conversations, and propose ideas and solutions in order to move forward.

Although you may be completely right and everyone supports you, don’t kick a man when he’s down, don’t add fuel to the fire. Perhaps, if you maintain the right attitude, while still being assertive, you can get that person to rectify and change. Then, and only then you would have achieved all your goals.
