Learn everyone's name and at least 1 thing about them.
I'd say that listening to them and acknowledging what they are saying is a great start. Feedback. And then talking to them. Communication is being present and showing that you are present.
Cleavage is a great communicator! :P
Have your response to whatever they say be "good point. Let's take a bath and talk about it"
Let it free.. don't try to talk just talk...
Start conversations with people. Talk with all forms of personalities.
