How to be memorable to others:
- Put feeling in your voice. Monotone turns people off. Enthusiasm connects people.
- Use their name or ask their name and repeat it immediately.
“Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.” -Dale Carnegie
- Ask them how they are doing then ask why? or tell me more? Most people don’t take more than a casual interest in others. Taking a few minutes for people makes you memorable and the kind of person people want to be around.
- Nod your head as you listen to them. Proves you are listening and it helps you stay focused on them rather than thinking of the things you have to do right then.
- Ask how you can help them with their project, challenge or problem. Most of the time people just want to know that you care and are taking an interest. And they are more apt to help you some day.
