Mastering the perfect handshake is an age-old art that, according to one expert, is becoming both a rare and sought-after commodity.

    Why are we still shaking hands at all? In a time of such high concern with communicable diseases, deadly viruses, not to mention the common flu etc., isn't it time we looked at a different form of greeting that doesn't expose us to the potential risks of a bacteria-sharing handshake? How about introducing a polite bow, or some other form of business greeting so that we don't need to run for the hand sanitizer immediately after an interview, etc.?

    Karen, I completely agree! I often joke in my seminars that when I am Queen of the World, we will all greet others with the formal and perfectly polite Asian bow instead. Warmly, Jodi
