1. Start with eye contact and a smile - a great handshake is about connecting with the other person.

2. Go for the thumb - keep your hand open and make sure your handshake will be a hand shake, not a finger or palm shake.

3. Firm but not strong – always make your grip firm, but make adjustments based on the firmness of the other person's grip.

4. Up and down, not back and forth - a good handshake has a nice up and down motion, not a back and forth one.

5. Adjust duration to the situation – an average handshake lasts about 2 seconds

6. Close with eye contact and a smile - if the smile and eye contact hasn't continued throughout the handshake, finish it off that way.
