Body Language Tips For Women Who Mean Business
Source: American Management Association
Women who have a firm handshake make a more favorable impression and are more likely to be judged as confident and assertive. So take the time to cultivate your "Professional" handshake. Keep your body squared off to the other person - facing him or her fully. Make sure you have palm-to-palm contact and that the web of your hand touches the web of the other person's. And, most of all, remember to shake hands firmly. One way that status is demonstrated nonverbally in a business meeting is by physically taking up room.
