How to Remember Names
by Pam Solberg-Tapper

Remembering people’s names is a key to professional success. It shows others that you are interested in them. This leads to enhanced relationships and confidence in dealing with others.

Here are 4 success keys for remembering names:

1. Meet and Repeat – exercise your memory muscle using repetition.

Tactfully use their name several times in your conversation
Concentrate on pronouncing it correctly– if you are not clear ask
Repeat their name silently in your mind while they are talking and later that day/evening Write it down – put in contacts/FB/LI at some point while still fresh in your mind

2. Create an impression of them – who is the person behind the name?

What impresses you about them? – smile? Enthusiastic?
Why do you want to get to know them? – what do you have in common?
When we become genuinely interested in others, remembering names is easy.

3. Craft a mental picture of their name

Turn someone’s name into an image you can remember
Odd linkages work great
Examples: when you meet Shirley, think of a Shirley Temple Or Pam – think of the cooking       spray Pam

4. What do you do when you can’t remember their name?

Prime the Pump – say your name first – “Hi, remember me, I’m Pam”
Be honest and ask. Otherwise you will be distracted trying to remember during your conversation.
Keep it simple – ask “Will your refresh my memory – your name is?”
