Doing Business in Mexico: A Guide for Navigating Cultural Difference
July 21, 2011 § Leave a comment
Here is a great article on a few key communication problems that U.S. and Mexican business partners encounter and tips on how to avoid them. For instance, “in mainstream U.S. culture, accountability is simply assumed, and a request for information is assumed to require a quick response. It is not necessary to say anything; it is assumed.” A lot of these assumptions cannot be transferred to other cultures and this can create frequent misunderstandings. The article linked to explains what you need to know to triumph in these cross-cultural business communications.
