- Always stand up when making an introduction or shaking hands.
- If you are seated and someone approaches to greet you, make the effort to stand up.
- It is appropriate to do so whether you are a man or a woman.
- By standing up, you are showing respect for yourself and for the other person.
- When standing up:
- Button your suit coat.
- Stand up straight.
- People will be judging your posture.
