You can tell a lot about a man from his handshake...
So, we asked Harley Street psychologist at Pinnacle Therapy, Richard Reid, shows you how to nail a handshake guaranteed to turn you into the office champ...
Use Your Body
“Stand up, and keep your hands out of your pockets. Use eye contact and smile warmly, but briefly.”
Get In Position
“Ensure your hand is neither palm down nor palm up. Angle your thumb towards the ceiling.”
“Keep your palm flat and make contact diagonally, wrapping your fingers around the person’s hand.”
“Lock your thumb down and squeeze firmly, mirroring the other person’s pressure. Shake from your elbow, giving it two or three pumps, then release.”
