If criticized by your boss and you believe your actions were correct, do you let your anger show, or do you stay calm?

When you're right, and your boss is angry with you, slow down. Clarify what is the issue. Ask why the boss is upset. Calmly reply with facts and focus on clarifying the situation. Stick to the facts. Your calm demeanor will speak volumes to the correctness of your position. People shout when they don't have the facts, so stay calm and set the record straight.
