Keep your body language appropriate to the person you're talking to. For example, if you're talking to an employer, try not to slouch or cross your arms. If you're dealing with an employee, keep the body language of your face level and avoid slouching.

Use your voice to show your interest. Use your voice to communicate your needs, ideas, and questions. You can use your voice to emphasize key points, to respond to questions, and to get attention when the situation demands it.

One of the best ways to improve your public speaking and interpersonal communication skills is to read books about communication.

People tend to underestimate how much a simple gesture like smiling or holding hands can affect how you interact with people. These small gestures can go a long way toward making you feel better and making you feel more comfortable with your co-worker or manager.

Make sure that you use your body language properly. Even if you are just trying to make a first impression, make sure that you look like you're confident and have a good posture. If you're nervous or shy, use body language that shows that to try and hide your anxiety and nervousness.

Avoid eye contact or gestures. When you're meeting a stranger in person, make sure that you keep eye contact with them and don't make a hand motion or an excuse to glance out the window or at the person you're talking to.

Make sure you smile and say thank you. When you're greeting someone, be sure to put a friendly smile on your face when you greet them and make sure that you smile and say thank you every time someone comes up to you. When you're interacting with another person in a social situation, especially if they are a boss or co-worker, make sure that you say thank you and say hi. This shows that you appreciate them and remember that you appreciate them.

Be polite and make sure you listen carefully to what they say and listen attentively. Don't rush through things and try to think of a response before you've even asked them a question. If someone is giving you a difficult situation, you want to make sure that you take the time to think of a good answer.
