Be honest. Own up to your mistakes. Keep your conversations light and superficial, do not go into personal details. Smile when you speak to others.

Try avoiding gossiping around the office--this is one of the biggest things that drives co-workers crazy. Just smiling and saying hello can also go a long way. Make it a point to great people each day and as the relationships grow, expand it to lunch or a happy hour.

The best way to get along with other people is to put yourself in their shoes. What are the challenges they have to deal with? What parts of their jobs are difficult? Then try to do your job so that you ease the burdens on them as much as you can. This works in personal situations, too.

Avoid being an office gossip, and don't discuss overly personal or controversial topics at work. Be polite and courteous, and always thank them when they assist you with your work.
