Practice. Then practice more.
Other then that, search around online for different techniques and styles of sketch work. There is a difference in the skills you use to sketch people and the skills you use to sketch a still life or landscape.
As far as the people – and I personally have never liked sketching people – keep in mind that each part of the body has a shape. Most of the parts of the body, the shapes are going to end up being oval to some degree. Start with that basic shape to get the size, scale and basic postition, then add more detail in. It takes time, and, as said above, practice.
