The name game

Did you watch marathon somewhere? It is very exciting for runners and non-runners to see all the people who are pursuing a particular goal or result. I always looked very inspirational. Many marathon runners write their name on T-shirts. Why do you ask to abolish a piece of clothing with a magic marker? Hmmm! I would ask my children the same question.

The reason to personalize the day-to-day clothing of the competition is strangers in the crowd who enjoy them and call their name. Many current releases suggest that they can enjoy the daily experience of the competition. I once run like a runner, with lots of people who decorated their clothes in this way. It seemed to nourish the energy coming from the crowd. I often observed that the simple voice heard their name motivated by tired runners as he struggled toward the finish line. It is not surprising that Dale Carnegie (1936), author of the legendary book How to Win Friends and Influence People, said, "The biggest voice in English is the voice of his own name!"

If our business goal is to do so, to get repetitive and recommended customers and customer loyalty, meeting with experienced staff is mandatory. There are a large number of costs incurred by the total number of people. Some elements of employee compensation include costs: insurance, 401K plans and training, some mention. By contrast, certain intangible benefits are quite economical. One is absolutely free! It stimulates, inspires and makes moral wonders. What is the magic advantage? Get acquainted with associates They recognize their faces and know little about them. Nothing is easier, cheaper, and potentially gets more staff than a supervisor who knows their name and always uses these names.

Here are some ways to remember people's name.

  • A concerted effort – remember the names of people.

I'm tired of the names because I just did not try it enough. Making a coordinated effort is half the battle. You came back to what you were given as our parents taught. Is this familiar? Ask about! Take the time. We often do not get the name of the other person when we meet them because we concentrate on ourselves and not on the person we meet. In addition, our minds migrate because we assume that we forget their names. Have you been in the next position? The fast fire section introduces five people – perhaps a newly-recruited group at the company. He quickly repeats, "I'm glad we met you," over and over again, knowing he will not remember one of the names! As described in CareerBuilder.com (July 22, 2005), "The first and most important step is when we pay attention."

  • Notice the details – you notice something about the new person.

Look into the other eye. Let's see their faces. Choose something unique. Train yourself to learn something about the facial structure or your voice or anything else that is unique to them. If you thoroughly examine people, you can easily recognize the special features that will help you remember them. According to Tony Buzan (1991), the author can use the perfect memory "If you can sharpen your observation ability, you are making a huge step towards improving memory, which is the main reason for bad memory."

  • Repeat the name – in his memory.

After hearing his name, call that person with his name several times, so he gets into his long-term memory. Each time you repeat the name, you will have a better chance of remembering it on the road. Ask yourself to repeat your name if you do not believe that you first heard the answer. Ask him to do it. Check the pronunciation. Ask the origin of the name. If the name sounds overseas, ask where it comes from. The added byproduct of these issues is to express interest in promoting the development of bonds. Keep in mind the following: It is a thought that I echo again and again. Considering everything, people would rather shop with a friend. Make friends by commenting on the names.

  • Connect the name – connect with someone or comment.

Many memorable experts suggest that if someone associates someone's name with you, you will have a better chance of remembering your name. A friend recently participated in a performance and told me an extraordinary story. The loudspeaker stood at the door of the room, and every 50 people accommodated the room. A few minutes later, he walked around the room and called everyone to name. Wow! His trick was to immediately realize that someone was famous as he shook hands. For me, he might have imagined Darryl Dawkins, the former NBA superstar, who most remarked that he had shaken the backs with stunning cannons. (Strange thinking, at least when it's only 5 ft, 8 inches tall.) The only thing I want a donut!)

Sometimes the results are not so much fun! While recently discussing this topic with a prominent businessman, he told the following story. His friend used the "associative" tactics to remember the names. By nurturing a new contact, he linked the name of potential customers with the iconic Chicago hotel Conrad Hilton . For a few weeks, Hilton invited to repair the gentleman, whose name was Conrad . Be careful and use it at your own risk.

  • Showcase Your Cards – admit you if you do not remember someone's name.

Do not dry it! A few months ago I had dinner at a local restaurant. Someone stopped at the table and mentioned that I was talking to her. – Oh, yes, I remember you, Tom. Bad! It was not his name. I was embarrassed and probably embarrassed. The young guy said for a moment, "Hello," and I guessed his name. I thought I remembered, but I thought wrong. He was with his wife. I felt very bad and I apologized abundantly, but the damage was done.

If you do not know someone's name, open it and go on. To be honest. Be real. Your acquaintances and colleagues will be much more forgiving if they say something like this: "Your name has already come to me," or "I'm great with the faces, but laughing names!" as if you were trying to bluff your way through an unpleasant encounter.

  • Use the name – repeat it instead of just nodding and smiling.

Use name transferring and phone. When he passes his companion in the corridor, he says, "Hello," say "Hello, Tom!" The result: They feel good and their name is stronger in your mind. Not too often. Excessive use of a name as a face to face problem counts slightly; but talk about your phone talking with your partner's name. Do not forget that the phone is a lot less intimate than a personal conversation. We can not see facial expressions and other gestures that help us talk. Activities that help you understand each other's meaning.

Author of Leil Lowndes (1999), author of "The Winners Way" "People mimic themselves when they hear their own name." It helps people to concentrate on the conversation. Have you ever been on a city street (with wonderful noises) and heard your name cry out? It will happen to everyone. No matter how distracting and how noisy our environment seems to be magically heard and responding to our own name. To use the author's words above, it looks like we're going back to the conversation. Draws attention!

Name-commemoration is essential in both business and social situations. It builds instant contact and friendship, and it does not cause a penny. With your fellow workers, very few acts convey respect or are flattering. Do you have a special memory for someone unexpectedly picking you up with your name? Was this your first job boss? How did I feel? Is there yet another punch in step for the rest of the day? Smiled? Treat your colleagues with this feeling.

In an era where personal communication becomes more and more important, the ability to recall people's names and memories is a valuable asset in both business and personal situations. Think so. If we expect our colleagues to remember our customers – names, then we have to take the time and effort to remember their name. Getting to the finish line with our compatriots requires you to count the little things and understand that the names, dreams, interests, goals and children of our colleagues are like ours. Certainly life is a complex equation; but there is one thing that makes each of us unique – our name. Use your companions & # 39; names freely. Just do not yell, "GO TOM, the finish is just ahead!" while moving toward the copier. Tom does not need to be in the office.
