Be interested in the people you are communicating with. Remember people are more attracted to those who are interested in them, and will pay more attention to what they are saying.

Listen first. Communication is a two-way process; getting your message across depends on understanding the other person.
Smile and use eye contact.
If the other person has a different point of view to yourself find out more about why they have that point of view.
Ask questions. Its a great way to show people that you are really interested in them.
Be assertive. Value what the speaker has to say.
When your speaking try to be enthusiastic when appropriate.
