Empowerment is about making conscious choices which will be most likely to bring you success and fulfillment. It’s about thinking ahead and preventing the problems in life that are preventable and dealing rationally and effectively with the ones you can’t prevent. There is little in life that you can control but you can make informed choices about everything.

Being fully grounded in reality  is necessary for feeling confident and empowered, as opposed to living in hopeful fantasy.  When the  truths  are difficult to face, use your inner knowledge/intuition    to deal with life’s challenges in the most realistic  manner possible.

Empowerment is the ability to pursue your goals without being inhibited by any internal or external forces. It’s being confident instead of  self-doubting; motivated    and inspired .  It’s not allowing any person or negative inner voice to get in the way of your “going for it.”

Empowerment is about being assertive.  Aggression can come close, and that’s certainly not it.  Empowerment is the “power to” do things, not the  “power over” things.  Be persistent and  follow through with problems.

Things can be chaotic enough “out there” without workplace bullying, which unfortunately  is on the upswing;  workplace bullying is a hot topic now.

 Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia defines workplace bullying:

Workplace bullying, like childhood bullying, is the tendency of individuals or groups to use persistent aggressive or unreasonable behavior against a co-worker or subordinate. Workplace bullying can include such tactics as verbalnonverbalpsychologicalphysical abuse and humiliation. This type of aggression is particularly difficult because, unlike the typical forms of school bullying, workplace bullies often operate within the established rules and policies of their organization and their society. Bullying in the workplace is in the majority of cases reported as having been perpetrated by management and takes a wide variety of forms. Bullying can be covert or overt.

The Professional Liability Underwriting Society’s seminar “Hot Topics on D&O and Employment Practices Liability” at the University of Chicago on May 10, 2012 was led by four corporate employment law specialists.

Hot Topic #2  was Workplace Bullying.  After an honest review of what our proposed anti-bullying legislation, the Healthy Workplace Bill, does for employers and for workers and what it does not do, the employer advocates suggested that employers are wise to get ahead of this trend and address workplace bullies in a proactive manner.

Balance & Power, Inc.  has been addressing stress and anger management issues for two decades corporately, in the the educational and private sector and now is  facilitating bullying prevention trainings  and support groups for victims of bullying.  Anger in the school, the home and the workplace has reached epidemic proportions and it is my  goal to help eliminate the situation.  I believe inner strength and being centered are keys to optimal productivity and happiness.  I am a certified Anger Management Specialist, accepted by the  US courts.

Our popular training manual  SOAR! with Resilience™ Book often accompanies these programs.

 Myth #1:

Anger is inheritedResearch has indicated that people are not born with set, specific ways of expressing anger.  These studies show that because the expression of anger is learned behavior, more appropriate ways of expressing anger can be learned.

Myth #2:  Anger Automatically Leads to Aggression
It is a misconception that athe only way to express anger is through aggression.  Effective anger management involves controlling the escalation of anger by learning assertiveness skills, changing negative and hostile “self-talk”, challenging irrational beliefs and implementing a variety of behavioral strategies.Myth #3: People Must Be Aggressive to Get What They Want
Many people confuse assertiveness with aggression.  The goal of aggression is to dominate, intimidate, harm or injure another person- to win at any cost.  Conversely, the goal of assertiveness is to express feelings of anger in a way that is respectful of other people.Myth #4  Venting Anger Is Always Desirable
Anger is learned and can easily become a routine, predictable response, an inappropriate pattern, to a variety of situations,  resulting in negative consequences.  Venting anger in an aggressive way reinforces aggressive behavior.To break the anger habit, an awareness must be developed of the events, circumstances and behaviors that “trigger” your anger.  In addition to becoming aware of anger, you need to learn and develop strategies to manage it.I am a Certified Anger Management Specialist with offices in Long Island, NY and also have sessions via Video SKYPE and telephone.
