The handshake is a quick and fairly easy way to make a great first impression and establish yourself with others as both a confident and assertive professional.
Scarlet reminds you that the handshake is a very important part of business etiquette if, and when done correctly. There are many ways that a simple handshake can go wrong, from an overly moist hand to having a bone-crushing grip, a handshake says much more in a few seconds than most people ever take time to consider .
Please spend as much time practicing, and perfecting, your handshake as you do going over your resume and notes for your next meeting, it will be well worth it in the end. Scarlet wants you to remember that a firm handshake made with direct eye contact will always set the stage for a positive encounter.
…until next time…
