Communication Tip #50
We all encounter this embarrassing situation: not being able to recall people’s names.
Here is a solution that works nearly every time: While shaking their hands, say your first and last name. They usually say theirs. If they don’t, I suggest saying, “Remind me of your name.”
I then make a point to say their names several times to let them know I value them and that the next time, I will, indeed, remember.
What works for you?
