  1. Great tips! I need to remind myself of #3 a lot. I’d like to think I’m not self-centered, but I have a hard time remembering names when introduced because I’m too focused on what I’m saying and not focused enough on what *they’re* saying. One tool for addressing this is the old standby of repeating the name: “Pleased to meet you, Jim”, while looking them in the eye.

    #4 is also a great tip. It’s often hard to hear a name when it’s spoken quickly or with a breathy voice (lack of projection). I’m used to having to repeat my name (Wyland, pronounced WHY-lund) because it’s so similar to several more common names, like Wyler.
