Will this get you a reputation as standoffish? Arrogant? Self-important? Not if you’re a Rules Player, because you’ll know the Rules to make sure people admire, like, and respect you, without the need to dress up as Elvis or a fairy or whatever the theme is this year. Stay cool at all times. Give generously, support the cause, but leave the red noses for others to wear—at least when you’re at work. Remain civilized and sophisticated at all times. Let’s face it, you are there to do a job. That’s what they pay you for.
That means that every time someone near you messes up, you need to know all about it. You’ll have to do your detective work, subtly mind you. No one wants to be crossexamined by a colleague about where they went wrong, and there’s a danger of coming across as smug and self-satisfied and nosy and condescending because it wasn’t you who made the mistake, and that is definitely non-Rules behavior. So when a colleague gets himself in hot water, find out what went wrong without getting spotted. One of the best ways to do this is to offer to help him put things right.
When someone shakes hands with you, he should be left with the impression of strength, confidence, power, and of someone totally in control of himself—that’s you, of course. If you are in any doubt about the “rightness” of your handshake, get a friend to tell you. How do you make it better? Make it firm. You can always use the other hand to reassuringly grip both your hand and that of your boss/colleague/client. But don’t overdo it and leave this person with crushed fingers. You can always adapt your handshake to make it more individual, more memorable.
