English term or phrase:unbusinesslike
Cultural misunderstandings often end up in an impasse with the expatriate ending up cross, angry and frustrated and blaming his host country workers for being either lazy, inefficient or unbusinesslike. What he has to do is apply a little moral relatively. He must realise that different cultures apply different priorities and, for instance, have different notions of time.
