Overview

What Women Need to Know to Succeed in International Business

From meeting protocol and sexual harassment to dining and gift giving, the rules for conducting business abroad can be dramatically different from those at home—and they can also vary from country to country. But with this indispensable resource, you'll have everything you need to successfully interact with your business counterparts, whether you're doing business in Caracas, Calcutta, or Copenhagen. Bestselling author Roger Axtell combines his 30 years of experience working abroad with the advice of three cross-cultural consultants to provide you with guidance and specific advice on:
* Survival —Knowing the culture, protocol, safety, and staying healthy
* Cultural differences —A country-by-country listing of the rules for proper dress, speech, table manners, etc.
* Climbing the career ladder —Resources listing the best schools, courses, and language training, advice on finding mentors, and more
* Personal issues —Dating rules in different cultures, balancing an international career and family life, dealing with harassment and discrimination

International business is a traditionally male-dominated arena that has recently seen an explosion in female interest and participation. This book, written by the expert on international business protocol and three co-founders of a cross-cultural consulting firm, tells women the facts they need to know in order to succeed in the international business arena. 320 pp. 15,000 print.
