Do you struggle with anger? Have there been just too many times when you said things out of anger that you have regretted saying? Has anger gotten you into trouble?

Atman Management has designed a very simple formula for helping you figure out if you struggle with anger issues:

If one person has told you one time that you have anger issues, you might not have any. But, if more than one person has told you that you need to get your anger under control, or if even one person has told you on multiple occasions, then the reality is that you do struggle with handling your anger.

The Anger Management Program can help!
