—“Would someone please robustly define power distance?”— Micky Callahan
Power distance refers to the relationship between those in power and the subordinates in a society where lower ranking individuals depending on the high or low power distance culture react to that authority.
Simple checklist (Doolittle):
1 – How many layers are between you and political decision makers.
2 – How many people are competing for their attention?
3 – How contradictory are the competitors demands to yours?
4 – How how likely are political decision makers to reflect anyone’s interest other than their own?
