If you’re in a business meeting don’t inadvertently play the ‘little woman’, either figuratively or literally.
Whenever a man, of whatever status, joins the meeting, or comes into the office, don’t stay seated and wait for introductions. Stand up and firmly shake their hand as equals.
Put yourself on their level. Staying seated, especially if you have to look upwards as introductions are made, puts you at a disadvantage and suggest that you don’t see yourself as being on an equal footing.
