Ready for your challenge for this week?
Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Use Kwik’s “S.U.A.V.E.” technique this week to remember the names of new people you meet. Try to learn at least two new names a day.
- S(ay): Say the person’s name out loud.
- U(se): Use her name in a sentence, e.g. “Natalie, it’s nice to meet you!” Use the name three to four times in conversation, but don’t “abuse” it.
- A(sk): Ask the person whose name you’re learning a question. The meaning of her name, or where she’s from, are great starting points.
- V(isualize): Try visualizing something tied to the person’s name. For example, if he’s named Matt, picture a doormat after learning his name.
- E(nd): As you walk away from the conversation, use the person’s name one last time to say goodbye.
Don’t have a networking event or conference coming up? No problem. Consider finding a meetup happening locally, or test the S.U.A.V.E. technique out at the coffee shop to remember the name of your barista, or the next time you’re out with a friend, strike up a conversation with a stranger to practice being S.U.A.V.E.
