To get ahead, use your handshake, experts say

Want to succeed in business? Get a grip.That is, practice your handshake.It may sound silly, but experts and studies agree that a handshake may say more about a person than he or she realizes — and could stand in the way of a key sale or a desired job.

The key to a good handshake, Ms. Holland said, is going in web to web, locking thumb joint to thumb joint.

You need about two to three pumps, but don’t be a hanger-on and don’t go in so quickly and then out that makes you seem like a germophobe,” she said. It’s important not to have an overly hard grip or a too soft one, she added.
