Habits of Genuinely Likeable people #2
Shift the spotlight to other people..
No one receives enough praise. That means one of the easiest ways to be likable is to tell people what they did well.
Wait, you say you don't know what they did well? Shame on you -- it's your job to know.
Not only will people appreciate your praise; they'll also appreciate the fact you care enough to pay attention to what they do. And then they'll feel a little more accomplished and a lot more important, and they'll love you for making them feel that way.
