Chapter 10. "Who Are You?" > Teach Your Name

Teach Your Name

Notice that you have not yet said your own name! Now is the time to do just that. Be ready to help someone learn your name. There are three things that you can do.

  1. Give 'em a double dip. Say your first name twice: "I'm Bob, Bob . . . Shafer."

  2. Separate and articulate. Say your first and your last name with a tiny pause in between and pronounce your last name crisply and distinctly: "I'm Bob, Bob (pause) Shafer."

  3. Make your name memorable. Say something about your name to help the person you're talking with remember it. Here are some suggestions. Spelling your name is a good idea because a majority of us are visual learners. That means that we learn best when we can see the letters in our mind's eye. To help you learn her name, Jennifer might have spelled Allsgood when you asked her for it again. Nancy Mann says, "It's Mann with two n' s. I'm the only woman in real estate in Kansas City who's a Mann."
