If you have always wanted to do business in Israel but don't have an idea what is the etiquette for doing so, a website has all the basics you need when dealing with Israelis.
In a series of features written by Tami Lancut Leibovitz which appear on the Executive Planet website, you get the insight into what Israelis expect out of business and the best way to deal with them as well as to understand better why Israelis may act in certain ways such as shouting.
From business dress to public behaviour and from what gifts to offer to negotiating deals, the articles are straight to the point and written by someone who really knows her stuff.
For over 25 years, Lancut Leibovitz has been involved in marketing and communications in Israel and is also founder and president of the Israeli Institute for Etiquette and Manners.
Her approach as a native Israeli is direct. Ever wondered why Israelis are always shouting? "Foreigners say that people here are always shouting, and it's true," Leibovitz told Australia's The Age newspaper. "One reason for that is that everybody has been in the army, and often their hearing is damaged. But another problem is that they are just shouting for attention."
