Sorry I’m Late!

Showing up late to a meeting damages your interpersonal relationships. The later you are, the more damage you’ve caused. The more “controllable” your excuse, the more damage you’ve caused. (In other words, people are less upset if your car broke down than if you just “lost track of time.”)

Abstract and Practitioner Points available from the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology.
