Charles Tiayon's curator insight, June 5, 2014 9:30 PM

A female executive in the pharmaceutical industry recently returned from a business trip to a conservative Muslim country. "How did it go?" I inquired. "Not so good," she frowned. "Some of the men refused to shake my hand. How am I supposed to build a relationship with them if we can't even share a handshake?" She felt confused, disrespected and a bit angry.

Businesswomen have to be agile, resourceful and resilient to excel in a male-dominated business environment. Of the many obstacles they must navigate, one of the toughest is the challenge of cross-cultural business. In short, many cultures don't know how to handle dynamic females as business partners, and many businesswomen are perplexed about how to cope with this while going for the deal. This is a pertinent issue because the greatest economic growth is occurring in Africa, China, the Gulf, and other regions where gender roles are most pronounced.

The major point to remember -- especially for businesswomen coming from liberal countries, such as those in the West -- is to be aware that every country has its own set of cultural norms and traditions, and expected roles for males and females. Women and men have their places in the social hierarchy, particularly in more traditional societies like, for instance, parts of Asia, Latin America, Southern Europe, India and the Middle East. The intricate weave of these roles intertwine the business and private spheres; it is simplistic to think solely in terms of "oppressed" women, and "omnipotent" men. Indeed, in most traditional societies, for example, women have near-dictatorial powers inside the home while the man serves the family outside of it.

Cross-cultural business has much more to do than just gender. Age is important as well, where young businesspeople are seen as too inexperienced or not "serious" enough professionally to be a worthy and reliable business partner. A few gray hairs silvering the temples of a female's or male's head is reassuring; age is linked to wisdom. Status -- job title, "proper" dress, the latest Smartphone, a chauffeur-driven car -- all indicate your importance, your power and your place in the corporate hierarchy.

Find the type of gathering that works for you.

 

The night before a conference where I was scheduled to speak, I found myself in a crowded bar just south of Greenwich Village. The organizers had arranged a VIP reception, and — having just moved to New York — I figured I should attend. Indeed, I had good conversations with four interesting people whom I’ll probably keep in touch with. But when I walked out the door an hour later, I was thrilled with my revelation: I’m never doing that again.
