[l. 8-11]<br/>In specific-oriented cultures a manager segregates out the task relationship she or he has with a subordinate [and insulates this] from other dealings. But in some cultures every life space and every level of personality tend to permeate all others.
Cs once again takes over large parts of sentences from the second edition of Trompenaars. This time a remnant of the first edition (the bracketed phrase "and insulates this" from Trompenaars (1995), p. 73, l.9) can also be found, though Cs introduces a spelling mistake. No citation marked.
