The library is pleased to offer a trial to the digitized version of Kiss, Bow, or Shake Hands a standard reference on how to do business in 100 foreign countries. Each entry includes a map, current time and calendar, brief modern history, and directory of top current leadership. The business tips sections provide observations on appointments, notions of time, entertaining, and negotiation styles. The protocol sections give advice on greetings, gestures, gifts and dress.
The cultural orientation sections offer generalizations about national tendencies for information processing, accepting evidence, making decisions, handling anxiety and responding to equality and inequality. If you’re a fan of cultural trivia, you’ll enjoy the brief interactive quizzes for each country!
If your like Kiss, Bow or Shake Hands you will probably appreciate the Falvey Library research guide Doing Business Abroad. The trial runs through February 11, 2011. Let us know what you think!
