Fear of sexual-harassment suits have forced many American leaders to stop touching people.

Yet, some top executives, including Jack Welch, still include a pat on the shoulder or a warmer-than-usual handshake among their leadership tools.

Case study: After giving a speech a few years ago, Welch talked with each of the 30 customers present, and he touched every one of them.

To use the power of touch:
  • Do it in public settings, not behind closed doors.

  • Use it sparingly, to reinforce the importance of camaraderie on special occasions.
