It’s no secret that I’m a bit manic about handshaking, to the point that I actually will not do business with someone who has a poor handshake.
Imagine my glee when I read this post yesterday! Make sure to note my favorite section of the article:
Shaking A Woman’s Hand:
Keep in mind that shaking a woman’s hand should be treated the same as shaking a man’s hand. You should clasp palms and match their grip with your own.
“Match their grip with your own”. Make a note of that. This isn’t Ye Olden Days. You aren’t being judged on your ability to defend yourself, but you are being judged. You’re being judged by everyone you encounter, including the women you do business with. Speaking as a business woman, if you want my respect, bring a solid handshake!
