Step 1: Say please and thank you
Mind your manners. Say please and thank you everywhere, in every situation. Seek to make every social experience a positive one.

Step 2: Be well groomed
Be well groomed and polished as a matter of respect for yourself and for those you encounter.

Step 3: Help out
Go out of your way to help others -- hold doors, offer directions, share your time, money, and advice without expecting anyone to reciprocate.

Remember -- what you learned in kindergarten about sharing and mutual respect will go a long way.

Step 4: Make tasteful observations
Make tasteful observations and jokes. Avoid jokes told at the expense of other people.

Step 5: Listen well
Listen well, making eye contact. Wait to speak and steer clear of arguments.

Step 6: Admit mistakes
Admit mistakes and accept criticism graciously. People appreciate being around someone who is self-aware and personally responsible.

Step 7: Don’t stare
Don’t shame, embarrass, or taunt others. Never stare at someone.
