Major Corporations Need Anger Management

In the last week, our firm, AJ Novick Group has received two referrals from major corporations seeking coaching for anger management. One corporation, based out of Oregon will be sending one of their key employees through our comprehensive anger management coaching sessions. Our newly designed curriculum will be used to meet the demands of this very specific audience. All participants will be assessed and interviewed prior to commencing these sessions. The use of DVD’s, online exercises, and out of session exercises will be required. Anger management is a skill, and like any skill it must be practiced. We require 10-12 sessions which will specifically address improvements in the following areas:

Tool One — Dealing with stress.
This tool teaches skills in effective stress management strategies to help reduce physical, mental and emotional signs of stress.
Tool Two — Empathy Development.

Coaching for anger management is a relatively new concept being adopted by many human resource managers across the county. Negative or disruptive behavior in the workplace in unacceptable and it is often difficult to know how to address these issues when they erupt. Anger management coaching for executives is an ideal way to teach skills in a non threatening, supportive environment.
