  • Treat everyone as you would wish to be treated . It is important to put yourself in other people’s shoes.
  • Go outside your comfort zone . Our interns found herself as the only person of color in a boardroom with 40 people. She felt like she didn’t belong there, with the help and support of mentors she stepped out of her comfort zone, and found her voice.
  • Always support those who work for you. Always laud their successes. Never take credit for other people’s work even if they work for you.

Not only does saying “thank you” constitute good manners, but showing appreciation can help you win new friends, according to a 2014 study published in Emotion .
