Time—Punctuality versus Relationships
Lecture no. 7 from the course: Customs of the World: Using Cultural Intelligence to Adapt, Wherever You Are
Taught by Professor David Livermore | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Travel Courses
There is perhaps no cultural difference that people relate to more than the stewardship of time. Learn how researchers account for these variations, and see how a culture’s tendency to be “polychronic,” or have a long-term orientation, correlates with punctuality being a low priority. Conclude with practical suggestions for dealing with people who may not share your view of time.
