What are chromatics and chronemics in communication?

Chromatics is communication through the use of color. Colors of clothing, products, packaging, or gifts send intended or unintended messages when people communicate cross-culturally. 
Chronemics reflects the use of time in a culture. In a culture with a monochronic time schedule, things are done linearly, or one activity at a time. Polychronic time schedules are used by people who tend to do several things at the same time.

Political skill is the ability to effectively understand others at work, and to use such knowledge to influence others to act in ways that enhance one’s long-term personal and/or organizational goals. The four dimensions of political skill are:

2) apparent sincerity- the degree to which individuals appear to others as possessing high levels of integrity, authenticity, sincerity, and genuineness. 
3)social astuteness-the degree to which individuals are savvy observers of others and are keenly attuned to diverse social situations and 
4) interpersonal influence- the degree to which individuals use a subtle and convincing personal style that exerts a powerful influence on those around them.
