Just wanted to share this article about handshakes.

This is brilliant. I bet Mark and Mike could do a podcast on this - would probably only take 8-10 minutes. Maybe Mark could sketch some diagrams of how it would look. :wink:

ROFL!!

Actually, a video to supplement the existing podcast would be helpful... so much easier to demo than describe.

I wonder if this is part of the reason I've done well in getting jobs. The church I grew up in taught handshaking. I know, it's weird. Don't ask me to explain. :roll: But it's come in handy!

Church is a great place to practice handshakes. When we give the sign of peace, I shake everyone's hand the MT way (or, at least, as close as I can without receiving feedback on it).

Great article. It mentioned how we might not remember a person's handshake, or whether it was good or bad. I DEFINITELY remember bad handshakes.

Terri,

Was the use of the word "handy" an intentional or unintentional pun? :lol:
