- There are two kinds of people, those who have anger and those who don't admit they have anger. Anger is part of the human experience yet most of us struggle to make peace with our experience of anger. We deny it, we avoid it, we feel shame because of it or we become completely overwhelmed by anger. Hi, my name is Marlene Chism and I'm an executive educator, a consultant and author.
