"I spend time explaining why we're doing what we're doing, the way we're doing it, and what I'm hoping they will actually get out of it."

Short paper

Cultural differences and time: According to H T Hall (1914-2009) anthropologist and cross-cultural researcher, we communicate using a wide range of behaviours that are often unexamined or taken for granted. Hall's work indicated that people influenced by the Western European heritage tend to live in a "word world" and are often unconscious of the extent to which the language of behaviour influences communication. He developed a conceptual framework of "space and time" orientation which may be useful in understanding communication differences between cultures and individuals. This paper focuses on the time component of this framework and looks at different ways of thinking about time and in addition, makes use of "generation theory" (Strauss and Howe 1991) to consider how different generations are influenced and affected by one another.
