Study focuses on workplace anger

Donald Gibson, professor of management and chairman of the management department at the school’s Charles F. Dolan School of Business, recently received the 2010-2011 Robert E. Wall Faculty Award to research the phenomenon of workplace anger and how it can be used constructively. “This is not about asking people if they are angry, because we know that,” said Gibson, who conducted a Gallup poll study four years ago that showed that 25 percent of workers were angry from being overworked and unable to achieve goals. “This goes back to making it so that people can talk about their emotions to determine what is causing the anger.”
