Cultural differences
in gestures may contribute to a miscommunication in a business world how can someone effectivily address this problem or how can someone completely avoid this problem?


A person doing business with someone of another culture should study that culture. Learn what the communication diffences are and try to follow the main customs of that culture.


First of all, it is difficult to "completely avoid" the problem. Beside being aware of cultural differences, it helps to have your nonverbal behavior back up or support your verbal behavior — what you say in words. The following sites will give you some additional information:
