Most American frequent travelers have at one time or another been “trained” on how to interact or behave when traveling in other countries. We are told to be punctual in Germany, to accept invitations to karaoke in Japan or Korea, to refrain from tipping in Australia, to present business cards with two hands in Asia, and dress up for meetings in the UK.
Have you ever wondered how folks from other countries are “trained” to do business in the U.S. and Canada?
I found this guide (below) in the new Global Leaders Directory from the Global Business Travel Association. (As you may recall, I attended the GBTA convention last month and wrote about all those fabulous business class seats here.)
Anyway, it’s interesting and helpful to see how our foreign counterparts are trained to deal with us on our turf.
