I have a bit of a dilemma, and it is not new. Since elementary school, I have consistently been mistakenly called my last name. It is possible because my last name begins with another first name, but it happens both in person and via email at least once a month (twice in the last week, actually).
In DC, we learn a number of ways in which to remember someone’s name. Do you have any tips for getting others to remember YOUR name? Is it something that I should address or just “let it go” (cue Frozen music now…)
How to get people to remember your name:
- “Cooperate with the inevitable.” – Dale Carnegie
- Address it proactively with something easy to remember.
- Put a little humor into the situation.
