Retain Your Temper to be Great Leader By Padmashri Kadam CW

Retain Your Temper to be a Great Leader

By Padmashri Kadam CW 

In the process of leading a company, the Leadership role gets invested in its strategic outcomes, employees, and business processes. This level of personal investment can lead to losing your Temper. However, Leaders who express anger at work tend to damage their reputations. A Leadership style of this kind can stress your workforce and lead to poor performance and a high turnover rate among your staff.

Here’s how the story goes:

When the Buddha was teaching a group of people, he found himself receiving the end of a fierce outburst of abuse from a man who was angry that his son was being ‘taken’ as a monk. The Buddha listened patiently while the stranger vented his rage, and then he said to the group and to the stranger, "If someone gives a gift to a person, who refuses it, tell me, who would then own the gift, the giver or the person who refuses to accept the gift?" "The giver," said the group. "Any fool can see that," cried the angry stranger. 

"Then it follows, does it not," said the Buddha, "Whenever a person tries to abuse us or unload their anger on us, we can either choose to accept or refuse the abuse; whether to make it ours or not. Our personal response to the abuse from another decides who accepts or refuses the bad feelings."

Here are the best practices to help you deal with work situations that cause your Temper to flare up.

  • Take a break

Releasing yourself from the situation resists giving in to the temptation to communicate while still angry. If you are angry, execute a graceful exit by saying something like: “I’m getting upset about (insert situation here). Let me cool down a bit, but then let’s discuss this issue later because it’s important to resolve.” Take some time to recover and regain your critical thinking skills before responding. 

  • Look for alternatives

Look for other alternatives to deal with your emotions instead. Take time for yourself, try breathing exercises, walk around your building, write down your thoughts privately or do what you like to do. Alternatives offer you the time and space to examine and understand your emotional triggers.


  • Learn to manage your emotions

Knowledge of emotional intelligence can be applied for enhanced self-awareness. Investing in your emotional intelligence will not only help you manage employees but will help you become a better, more self-aware Leader. Resist yourself to make passive-aggressive tactics, such as making snide remarks.

  • Consider Leadership training

If you have an ongoing issue with your Temper, you could be setting unrealistic goals for yourself. That stress leads to anger and unhappiness. Get help from certified life or Leadership coach to examine the larger dynamics that could be contributing to your stress.
