From the latest HR Magazine:
“As children, we cried to get our way. If that didn’t work, we screamed. If that reaped no results, we threw a temper tantrum—kicking, squirming or holding our breath. That usually did it. People did things for us. It took genuine rage and anger to pull that off, but it got people’s attention.
“Now we’ve grown up. Or, have we? I’ve seen managers get angry and yell when others won’t do what they want. It’s a bad way to arrive at a decision, but temper tantrums still work for some.”
