Trainer: Isaac Onoja
“Anybody can become angry-that is easy; but to be angry with the right person, and to the right degree, and at the right time, and for the right purpose, and in the right way-that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy.”
This course trains individuals on the intricacies of anger. The HOW, WHY, WHEN and WHAT of anger. It teaches how to discover sources of frustration and irritation and how to express anger that will be beneficial and healthy. With activities, discussions and learning from the Century Anger Management certified Professional Trainer Isaac Onoja.
Anger is an emotion, albeit a powerful one. Like other emotions, it’s neither “good” nor “bad”, it’s bad reputation is mostly due to the destruction in relationships, property and governments that result from the misplacement and mismanagement of anger.
In this course, you will be provided with a research-based roadmap for coming to terms with anger in ourselves and others. As Aristotle famously said, it’s not in getting angry, but being angry at the RIGHT PERSON, to the RIGHT DEGREE, at the RIGHT TIME, for the RIGHT PURPOSE, and in the RIGHT WAY.
