All shook up: the art of the handshake

When it comes to handshaking, it’s safe to say there are as many styles as there are different types of people in the world. But, we’re going to keep this short and sweet, much like a good handshake.

If you are in the U.S. (the rules are different in other countries and we’ll explore that another time), in any social or business situation, male or female, this is how you should shake:

Firm — not too hard and definitely not too delicate

Short — one or two pumps

Eye contact — make it

That’s it. Happy handshaking!

Cheers!
