I realized recently that I’ve been blogging for over four years. During that time I’ve produced quite a bit of writing – over 900 posts. That realization prompted me last month to institute a new feature: Mediation Channel Classics, since I thought it might be worth a look back in time.
At the start of each month, I’ll be highlighting selected posts published in other years during that month. These are posts that have proved to be classics – they continue to draw traffic, or at the time they were published, they generated commentary (or sometimes controversy) or emails; some are very simply my favorites.
Here are my selections for August:
From August 2008:
- Don’t pee on my shoes and tell me it’s raining: more truth, less fiction, in debate on mandatory arbitration (as relevant now as it once a year ago, given recent headlines)
- The rest is trust: cognitive errors make it easy to misjudge trustworthiness
- The mind and magic: conjuring up ways to improve awareness
- All gardeners are optimists: what squirrels reminded me about conflict resolution
From August 2007:
From August 2006:
- Personal branding: how mediators can use blogs to define their identity online (some expired links in this one, but the topic remains relevant)
From August 2005:
Have a great August. For my friends in the Northern Hemisphere, hope you’re enjoying your summer.
