Hello and welcome to my practice.
I am Dr. John Seader and I am a certified anger management specialist.
I help those with anger management issues.
As an organizational psychologist, I also provide services for organizations such as executive coaching and leadership development.
It is important to understand that anger is a natural and basic emotion that is expressed on some level across all cultures around the world. You do not need to speak a culture’s language to recognize an angry face. Anger Management is not about removing one's anger, anger is a hard-wired emotion. Anger management is about learning to control our responses when anger develops.
Key indicators for the need for anger management include increases in anger:
duration of events
frequency of events.
I work across the management and executive ranks within an organization. I primarily focus on the issues that come with managing people. New skills required of managers including evaluating performance, conducting tough conversations, dealing with conflict and motivating teams are not necessarily skills that come naturally. Part of the need for coaching is due to the standard for getting promoted in corporate America is being good at what you do, as opposed to having the requisite skills for leading others in doing what you do. I offer several different assessments for management/leadership evaluations including emotional intelligence assessments, personality evalutions, and leadership type scales.
Continuing research into Emotional Intelligence is strengthening the link between an individual's level of anger expression and his/her level/development of emotional intelligence.
MHS, the distributor of the EQ-I 2.0 notes that "As the EQ-i 2.0 measures emotional intelligence (EI), it is important to consider what EI is, what it measures, and how is can impact people and the workplace. Emotional intelligence is defined as
“a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.”
Emotional intelligence (EI) as defined here and applied in the Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0) reflects one’s overall well being and ability to succeed in life.
While emotional intelligence isn’t the sole predictor of human performance and development potential, it is proven to be a key indicator in these areas. Emotional intelligence is also not a static factor — to the contrary; one’s emotional intelligence can change over time and can be developed in targeted areas.
Emotional Intelligence has been shown to be a better predictor of success in life, marriage, work and school than IQ. Even Monster.com is advocating for the volunteer completion of Emotional Intelligence Assessments on the part of job applicants seeking positions in sales, customer service and leadership positions.
Emotional Intelligence is the quiet miracle for success in psychotherapy, anger management, healthcare and business.
Enough evidence is available to determine the value of incorporating Emotional Intelligence into counseling, psychotherapy, business as well as college and interpersonal relationships. Professionals and organizations that are moving to actualize this new trend are experiencing an increase in referrals as well as a return on investments and success in a wide range.

The EQ-i 2.0 is one of the psychometric assessments that we offer our clients.
