Find out what Japanese business people really want and why!
Improve your performance by understanding culture differences.

Many people feel Japanese ask for too much detailed information, while at the same time, instructions from Japanese bosses tend to be quite vague. These seemingly contradictory behaviors can be better understood in light of the cultural differences between Japan and other countries.

In this seminar, you will learn a systematic approach and framework to better understand these cultural gaps, which will shed light on why conflicts exist in a cross-cultural work environment and allow you to build an effective communication strategy to deal with them.
