The number one anxiety in business is dealing with problem people. This unwanted stress can unleash some impulsive behaviors that may not be appropriate for a work environment. Reflexes and instincts originating from the most primitive part of our brains influence many of our actions and responses, and managing these natural impulsive reactions, as well as those of others, is essential for effectively navigating difficult relationships, handling everyday challenges and ultimately achieving success in the workplace.
