Kiss, Bow, or Shake Hands : Courtrooms to Corporate Counsels
There are dozens of cultural variables that can impact a contract in each country. For example, who makes the final decision? Is it an individual (like in Australia or the USA) or a group of people (like in Sweden or Japan)? We know that the successful practice of law begins with good research. Knowing which countries are comfortable with direct, frank communication and which value subtle, sophisticated speech patterns can give you an amazing advantage over attorneys who neither research nor respect other cultures. The original Kiss, Bow, or Shake Hands is one of Inc. magazine's top seven books on negotiating and, as of this writing, has sold over 450,000 copies. This book in the Kiss, Bow, or Shake Hands series has been written specifically for legal professionals--to help you develop the tangible intercultural skills that will support your successful legal practice.
