    Name Recognition

    Hearing our name mentioned in our native tongue is the sweetest name in the world. Following an introduction to a new person, if you didn’t catch their names, ask them to repeat it. Then use it in the next sentence or two to reinforce that in our mind.

    We believe God knows us by name and knows our thoughts before we think them. Our name is supposedly inscribed on the palm of His hand. So this desire to be recognized and cared for or loved is deeply engrained in each individual.

    For us to recognize and acknowledge others, we need to recall and speak their name. Next, we might ask about their new baby or the state of their financial battle. In their mind, this fortifies our concern for them.

    One way to be a popular supervisor/foreman is to remember each employee’s name. When you recall and mention their name that verifies that they are important and you genuinely care about them. They are more than a number of just another worker. The foreman cares and is concerned about us. What one passes out will return to the giver.
