Yes, this is a post on handshakes and why they’re important. When extending your hand, you should be engaging with the other person’s hand for optimal impact. Weak handshakes give away a negative impression, whilst being too aggressive doesn’t help either.
First impressions only happen once, so you have to make the most of them. A firm handshake will give off a perception of your abilities. When extending your hand, looking the person in the eye is very important as it indicates trust. The quality of your handshake will show how confident you are as a person, and this will show to the person you are communicating with.
