Before shaking someone’s hand, whether you are a man or a woman, rise if you’re seated. And keep your hands out of your pockets: visible hands make you look more open and honest. 4. Make sure to use plenty of eye contact, and smile warmly but briefly: too much smiling could make you appear overeager. 5. Keep your head straight, without tilting it in any way, and face the person fully. 6. Keep your hand perfectly perpendicular, neither dominant (palm down) nor submissive (palm up).

You will almost have your index finger on their pulse —almost, but not quite. 10. Once full contact is made, lock your thumb down and squeeze firmly, about as much as your partner does. Shake from the elbow (not the wrist), linger for a moment if you want to convey particular warmth, and step back
