The role of emotions in organisational life has only recently come to the attention of management scholars. Within that new attention, very little has been given to shame, just as it has been given in the social sciences in general. This paper provides an examination of shame as a powerful emotion and presents a model for understanding the impact of shame experience on human behaviour. The argument is made that shame may well qualify as the "master emotion".
