Bowing is a sign of being humble

I was watching video of Japanese conversation when I realised that the Japanese like to bow when they say 'Hajimemashite' (How do you do?) instead of shaking hands as Europeans do.

I also learnt that bowing was practised long ago in China. Actually bowing is a sign of being humble. It takes away your pride and the state of being superior to others.

As leaders who begin a talk or briefing to their followers by bowing to them, they will have leave a good impression on them and bring them closer together. If superior bows to workers the first time he meets them, they will be too willing to work harder for the company.

Let us bow if there is an occasion to do so.
