What is the best way to Remember the Name ?
Imagine the situation you meet some one for the first time and he introduce you with his name and You managed to remember his name.
Now, when you meet him again after some time and call him with his name, you can see the expression on his face. You would have made him immensely happy with a simple gesture.
Actually what you did is that that you made him feel special. Very special.
Remembering the name is more of a skill which can be learned with practice than it is about strength of memory
Sharing my real experience which taught me importance of remembering the name
My first task in first job was to take attendance of 20 team members.
I called names reading out from attendance register
Individuals came in front of me & said Present to confirm presence
Pretty simple, I thought & first day passed away
Next day was not going to be that simple which I was soon going to discover
Called the person name & everyone said that you should recognize by face as already told name yesterday
I was in fix & honestly, have not paid much attention to names & faces as if who was whom.
Asked to tell name one time & from tomorrow will remember on my own
Team agreed for one time.
Tried to pay more attention to faces so that I am prepared for tomorrow. Somehow attendance was completed.
My team had already given me task before I could give them any
Spent remaining day connecting with each person & strike conversation.
Asked names, family & interests to weave story around them.
Next day, success rate was 70% & by 5th day 100%
It was good lesson on importance of remembering the name
Over the years, I have learnt to be interested in people & know more about person, family, background, native place & interests to weave story around them
And when you meet them next time & call by name,
Hear a silent WOW & expression on their face will be priceless!
The best way to remember the name is to know more about a person, family, background, native place & interests to weave story around them It is a learnable skill and can be of great importance in building strong relationships
