The expat Agrees with the model using these examples : PD: ‘ If you have a better idea, you can tell it to the person in charge and he/she will listen to your idea.’ I: ‘ if work starts at 10 AM but you arrive at 10.30 AM because the waves were good and you surfed a bit longer, it’s fine. The boss won’t get mad when you work a bit harder during the day.’
