News & Opinion: Doing Business in Mexico

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 9:17 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Earlier this month, I noticed a trend in 800-CEO-READ and global business. Just this week, a major U.S. corporation is sending out to their Mexico based offices a book called Redefining Global Strategy.

More and more American businesses are going global and vice versa. To me, it's interesting to learn what businesses are reading about us and taking back to their companies, employees and even their clients about not only what we think about doing business internationally, but how they can do business with us. In a world that is constantly getting intimate and we find other countries companies and cultures very different from what we are used to. So, it is kind of reassuring that one thing hasn't changed: getting knowledge. Learning from others through conversations and the media. On a personal note I'm kind of glad that there are both books about how we can all do business together and people that actively search out for this knowledge.

Some of the top business books 800CEOREAD sent out overseas in October:
Riding the Blue Train - Australia
Hostage at the Table - Switzerland
Kiss Theory Good Bye - Canada
The Point of the Deal - United Kingdom
Influencer: Mastering the Power to Change Anything - Germany
