Communication with Jeff Pulver, Shirin Laor-Raz Salemnia & Hank Wasiak

Anyone who knows me knows I am a huge fan of communication; those skills are an asset to any business, industry, or specialty. On this week’s #GoalChatLive, I gathered friends from the #140conf community – founder Jeff Pulver along with Shirin Laor-Raz Salemnia, and Hank Wasiak – to talk about communication.

We discussed their relationship with communication, what they are passionate about – beyond and including the topic, tips for improving communication and dealing with breakdowns in communication, and much more.

My guests and their superpower:

  • Jeff Pulver is Founder/Curator of The VON3 Summit & #140Conf (Note: The #140 Conference will be back in virtual form likely in June 2022). Superpower: Connecting
  • Shirin Laor-Raz Salemnia is Founder and CEO of PlayWerks and WhizGirls Academy. Superpower: Wonder Woman of Tech
  • Hank Wasiak is an Adjunct Professor at Marshall School of Business at USC. Superpower: Empathy

The Key to Successful Communication

  • Shirin: Find the commonality, the pain point (how you can help)
  • Jeff: Start with intention and purpose. Remove FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt). Find meaningful ways to put yourself in the path of others
  • Hank: Listening! And recognize you are there to create empathy with them. Communication works best when you both get something out of it
