What 1 tip would you give to someone who asks
"How do I make great photos of people?"
Only 1 tip - not 1 and bit, or 3 or 7, but 1 (one).

Engaging with them.
Agree with above - but also eyes have it - get a good catchlight
Portray their character
Portraying the subjects story through to the image viewer not the camera lens. ( i.e as JGEE - i type too slow)
What's an image viewer ? New name for a sensor?
not "Get a good camera with lots of megapixels" then?
Studio with lighting
Quote: Studio with lighting
Jane Bown may disagree
Pose and compose to reflect the subjects personality.
Find out what turns them on, floats their boat, what they burn for, gets them engaged. Then they come to life and this is reflected in your images of them.
I'd go with "people skills" too - the art of "rapport" and reading people to get the best out of them.
The rest is secondary - technically perfect photographs of people looking bored/annoyed/miles away just don't engage you the same as interested/animated/expressive photos of people
