BROOKLYN, NY, December 27, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — Wassila Hachchi is a former politician and military who is now an author and a social entrepreneur. She created the platform Dialogue Digital because she believes that the power of dialogue is necessary for effecting social change.
According to Wassila, “We have to keep going forward. I think we did make some progress. If you look back, we now have social media. The internet is nothing but an instrument. You can use it for the force of good, and you can use it for bad. It’s basically a mirror if we complain about the internet like saying it’s been hi-jacked by the culture of hate, it means we as humans are not using it for something positive. We are in charge. We have to use the instrument in a way that it serves us.”
In her book “Listen. Think. Speak.” she shared her journey from her life in politics to being a social entrepreneur. Know more about what Dialogue Digital is and how Wassila came up with this powerful communication tool.
“In the 21st century we need to create conscious conversations that make a difference in the world. Wassila has created the answers for that. Powerful dialogue changes communities, families, and relationships. This book should be in every business and every family home.” Lisa Nichols, CEO Motivating the Masses
“We need to embrace the power of technology to our communication, and we need to learn how to use it effectively. We need to know how to continue to have dialogue with one another not just on the surface but a heart to heart interaction. I love Wassila’s openness to talk about and help drive better communication to the world.” Steve Kidd, host Thriving Entrepreneur Radio Show – Hear the whole interview at WeHelpYouTHRIVE.com/radio
