What is one of the most underrated skills?
Remembering someone’s name. A name is more than just a word. It’s the most important word in our vocabulary.
When we address someone by their name, we let them know they are valued. We see them as a real person. It says to the other, this person remembers me because I’m interesting and they want to know more about me; they must care about me. I must have made an impression on them. I feel important.
Let us give a subtle compliment and remember the names of those that we meet today.
