What can I do about a colleague's perpetual lateness?
Five to 10 minutes after the start of our weekly meetings, coffee in hand, he waltzes in and usually says something like: "What did I miss?"
When we collaborate on reports, he pushes back the deadline for his part, which must be completed before mine. I then have to rush through my portion of the work, which sometimes means working overtime, to respect the project's delay.
This is more than an annoyance. It is disruptive and unproductive. And frankly, I feel that it is very disrespectful of my time and me.
I just wanted to let you know that we had two successful networking evenings this week, and I saw many students participating in excellent conversations, no doubt in part due to their preparation. I can assure you that we are very pleased with your presentation, and we received positive feedback from students indicating that they found real value in the session. Thanks,
