Going ballistic at work

Last week we posted a nonscientific reader poll about going ballistic at work.  Below are the results.

Have you ever gone ballistic during a workplace dispute and completely lost your composure?

  • Never: 35%
  • Once or twice: 60%
  • Several times: 5%
  • Often: 0%
  • All of the time: 0%

According to Mike Figliuolo, managing director of thoughtLEADERS and author of “One Piece of Paper: The Simple Approach to Powerful, Personal Leadership,losing your cool is OK. Sometimes we all get pushed over the edge and snap. With the stresses we face, it’s no surprise. Sometimes being deliberate about when, where and how you snap can have its benefits. If you’ve been on the wrong side of mistreatment or a power struggle, deliberately losing your cool can help put things back in order. It lets people know where your line is and what happens when they cross it.

Do you agree with his assessment?  Let us know your side of the story in the comments.
