Conflict Resolution and Twitter

This past week I had the privilege of being a guest on the Adrhub podcast series. This series is hosted by the well-respected (and awesome) mediator Jeff Thompson. During the podcast we got to talk about Twitter and some of the do’s and don’ts as well as some of the people we enjoy following.

As a conflict resolution specialist I use Twitter for both business and pleasure. I use it for business to keep current about what is happening in the conflict resolution world, to establish relationships, promote conflict resolution, and connect with other mediators/conflict resolution practitioners within the field. One of the reasons I chose Twitter to do this is so that I could engage with people. I’ve been trained to communicate efficiently and to help others communicate, so why not showcase that on Twitter. Anyways, enough blabbering from me. Take a listen here to the podcast and let me know what you think!
