35 tips for better customer and business relationships around the world

Making a good first impression with a customer or coworker seems like a straightforward task. Be polite. Look them in the eye. Make sure your hand shake is firm but not too firm. Easy as pie, right?

No matter where you are, one thing is sure: the best way to start relationships—personal and professional—is to treat people with respect.
