Authority—Low versus High Power Distance

Lecture no. 4 from the course: Customs of the World: Using Cultural Intelligence to Adapt, Wherever You Are

Authority—Low versus High Power Distance

Taught by Professor David Livermore | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Travel Courses

Power distance—the degree to which members of a society are comfortable with inequality in power, influence, and wealth—is one of the most significant value orientations that shape behavior.  Identify cultures and settings with high and low power distance indexes and learn how you can use an understanding of this dynamic to avoid misunderstandings or awkward situations.
