This chapter deals with differences in communication styles, perceptions of time, teamwork appraisal, and compensation. It first addresses two issues that are essential to working in teams: effective communication and shared notions of time. It then looks at the nature of teams in Brazil and the United States and how the differences require specific arrangements not only for evaluating individuals' contributions to team performance but also for designing compensation arrangements that meet workers' expectations without disrupting their engagement with the broader corporation. The chapter also discusses Edward T. Hall's concepts of context, communication, and time perception as well as the link between teamwork and incentives, individuality and teamwork, self-evaluation by teams, and culture and incentives.

Keywords:   communication, time, teamwork, incentives, Brazil, United States, compensation, Edward T. Hall, individuality, culture
