Get shaking

Just in…”How To” advice from the Naked leader:

The handshake

– Look into their eyes, pause for 1/10th of a second and smile warmly – and introduce yourself as you move in to shake her/his hand

– Immediately match their grip strength (unless they squeeze your hand off, in which case withdraw your hand) and have the angle of your elbow the same as theirs

– Let them dictate the personal space – you will feel where it is “right”

– Mirror their feet – stand as if their feet are yours in a mirror
