The Importance of Nonverbal Presentation in Japan
When interacting, the Japanese value formal, nonverbal presentation, such as good posture. Learn how to maintain a straight posture, sit, and stand in the Japanese context. In Japan, as in other high-context cultures, body language is very important—sometimes more important than what is being said. Be mindful of which body language is appropriate and which should be avoided. Understand the differences in posture and seating between junior and senior Japanese professionals—useful knowledge when it comes to Japanese business protocol.
