Dale Carnegie answers this question pretty solidly in his book "How to Win Friends and Influence People" The bottom line is to be interested in other people. Ask questions about them, find out things ("What are your hobbies?" "What do you like to do?") and then find out some more. A common trap is to feel the need to be interesting yourself. Not a good plan, and often this can have quite the opposite effect of making you appear boring and self centered.
