Touch is powerful. The one sure way to immediately get familiar with the unfamiliar.
A child learns most of his first lessons through touch (think about that) – a baby becomes aware of his environment through touch. These are statements you might agree or disagree with; however what I am saying is touch is a very powerful way we become familiar with the unfamiliar.
In essence knowing how to touch, is knowing how to break communication barriers in first meetings.
The more you touch, the more familiar you get, and hence the comfortable a meeting becomes.
Touch needs to be done slowly though; in bits.
The act is for you to get familiar.
I guess, I didnt say much about how to touch. But know touch is a subtle-powerful way of making the unfamiliar familiar.
