1. with an Introduction of Yourself
Before extending your hand, introduce yourself. Extending your hand should be part of an introduction, not a replacement for using your voice. Extending your hand without a voice greeting may make you appear nervous or overly aggressive. So always try to sync your handshaking. It must be natural.
2. Shake Your Hand Only 2-3 Times
A business handshake should be brief and to the point. Consider a handshake a short greeting, not a lengthy engagement. Holding on for more than three or four seconds can make other people feel uncomfortable. It may deliver a bad idea than what you are supposed to say
3. Be it gentle and friendly
4. Treat Ladies the same.
5. One Hand is Better than Two
Avoid the urge to handshake with two hands. It is always better in business introductions to use only one hand – your right hand – for the shake. The use of two hands with strangers is seen as intrusive, and too personal. In fact, a two-handed shake is called the “politician’s shake,” because it appears artificially friendly when used on people you barely know.
6. Shaking a Sweaty Hand
If you shake hands with someone who has sweaty palms, do not immediately wipe your hands on your clothing, handkerchief, or tissue. This will further embarrass the other person, who is probably already aware they have sweaty hands. You can wipe them on something after you are out of site, and was later.
