Cultural standards applied to insiders are not necessarily applied to outsiders, in every country on the world. And understanding own cultural differences can only help in appreciation of culture of others!
COULD IT BE, just think of it for a moment, please,
that main difference comes from different paradigms we are operating under?
Take a look on what makes the difference between East and West approach in negotiation process (and Serbia is on crossroads) regarding Time as a Dimension (quotes from XING Negotiation Management Knowledge Base)
TIME AS TACTIC:
• Countering stall-and-delay tactics
o Europe/USA: deadlines and ultimatums
o Middle East: patience
• Using the past as a standard (to resolve disputes)
o Europe/USA: tendency to put primary focus on the future
o Middle East: tendency to rely essentially on precedents and rules of (!) past actions
So....could it be?
