Episode 600 of 644 episodes

From hotheads to curmudgeons, is anger always bad for business? Can anger management techniques help? Or should we put our wrath to profitable use? Laurence Knight speaks to entrepreneur James Beach, who hit the headlines following an air rage incident, about his chronic fits of rage. Anger management expert Dr Gina Simmons explains why James may want to consider doing press-ups. We also hear from Mustafa Nayyem, who helped initiate the bitter Euromaidan protests that brought down Ukraine's last government. Plus evolutionary psychologist Aaron Sell explains the circumstances most likely to bring out our inner beast. (Picture: Young man shouting at a young woman; Credit: Ingram Publishing/Thinkstock)
