It is Howard’s first day at work. He walks into the conference room with his superior Bob and sits down at the head of the table.
H: Good Morning! My name is Howard and I have two lovely daughters- Gertrude and Eloise. How’s everyone feeling today?
B: *Sits adjacent to Howard* That’s nice. We can discuss personal matters at another time.
H: Ok, Bob! No Problemo!
B: I ask that people call me Mr. Smith. Now tell me the report, we have to get going.
In this situation Howard is from a low power distance, feminine culture and Bob s from a high power distance, masculine culture.
