"Real Estate Faux Pas—Killing your Business with Cultural Boo Boos"


Listen to Briefing from 02/21/09

Interview Summary:

Most of us know and are aware of playing a sport golf, tennis, basketball, etc.and making a bad shot or performing poorly.

The problem in the global world, the world of international business, real estate or otherwise, is that we often perform poorly, by making the wrong comment, using the wrong gesture, etc. Yet, we often do not know that we have committed a blundera faux pas. And, when we lose the real estate transaction, we may not be aware that the transaction was lost, not from within a problem with the property, but from the faux pas that we never knew took place. The moral of the story: Learn what is killing your international transactionsand correct the problems and avoid the faux pas (boo boos).
