Cultural mistakes when investing in the Chinese market

You are an executive of an American company. You have been sent to China to expand your company’s operations in that country. (a) From your knowledge (or research) of cultural differences between the Chinese and Americans, what two cultural mistakes are you likely to commit in China that would irritate the Chinese people? (b) What can you do to minimize chances of making those cultural mistakes, so that you can be more successful in China? P.S. This question is not about Americans in general; it is about you, as an American, in particular. You need to get personal and apply it to yourself. Don’t write in general terms about Americans.
