Six ways to make people like you
Dale Carnegie was an American writer and lecturer who published the best-selling book How to Win Friends and Influence People. Here are ideas in a nutshell for improving your relationships with others:
Become genuinely interested in other people.
Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.
Be a good listener. Encourage others to talk about themselves.
Talk in terms of the other person’s interests.
Make the other person feel important—and do it sincerely.
