Build Rapport With Co-workers By Being Interested, Not Interesting

Talk less about yourself.  Get your co-workers to talk about themselves, then practice active listening. Summarize back to them what they just told you, and ask follow-up questions.  The trick here is to steer the conversation to where it is still about them, but also interesting to you, so that you become genuinely interested in what they are saying.
