This level of cultural sensitivity can lead to smoother negotiations, as it shows a willingness to adapt and engage with local norms. Additionally, correctly addressing individuals by their titles can create a more enjoyable and rewarding business experience, as it strengthens relationships and facilitates effective communication.
