Flex Your Memory to Master Names and Faces
Part of the New York Public Library's "Author @ the Library Series"
We are all in the business of building relationships, and that starts with remembering someone’s name. Getting a name right inspires confidence from the outset and helps others remember you—a powerful advantage in any business or social situation.
Learn why we often retain many details about the people we meet but forget their names almost at once. Discover how to assign names to easy-to-grasp categories; then, engage in fun, imagination-based exercises that teach you how to link the name to the face. You will notice results right away in the quality of your interactions.
To boot, you will learn how to apply the “Method of Loci,” a technique handed down from the Ancient Greeks. By tying sequential information (lists, speeches, scripts, etc.) to familiar physical locations, your command of any material can improve dramatically.
Lastly, we will explore the latest research about the impact of the pervasive digital culture on our already splintered attention spans. You will leave understanding why “flexing your memory” is as vital to overall wellness as proper diet, exercise, and rest.
