Yesterday I offered some tips on using Twitter for ADR practitioners. I promised to follow it up with a post pointing you to members of the dispute resolution community you might like to follow on Twitter.
The following are names no doubt familiar to Mediation Channel readers. All bloggers, these are folks I associate with friendly conversation and links to interesting articles and web sites. In each case the name links directly to the corresponding Twitter profile:
- Tammy Lenski, author of Conflict Zen and Make Mediation Your Day Job
- Victoria Pynchon, author of Settle It Now
- Arnold Zeman, author of Dialogic Mediation
- John Folk-Williams, author of Cross Collaborate
- National Arbitration Forum, publishers of the eponymous blog (who incidentally wrote a friendly post about their entry into Twitter)
- International Dispute Negotiation, the folks who produce the high-quality weekly podcast series
- Ross Runkel, arbitrator and author of LawMemo
- Bob Ambrogi, lawyer, mediator, arbitrator and well known author of LawSites (and recent birthday celebrant too)
- Catherine Morris, editor of Peacemakers Trust Bulletins, a media watch blog
- Guy Harris, “recovering engineer” and author of Resolving Conflict in Teams
- Stephanie West Allen, author of Idealawg and Brains on Purpose (please note that you’ll need Stephanie’s permission to view her updates)
Other nice folks from the ADR community on Twitter that you might enjoy connecting with include these:
- Mediate.com – the world’s best known resource on ADR and its founder, James Melamed, are now on Twitter
- Kees Wiebering, an organizational development and conflict resolution specialist located in Frankfurt Am Main (who also happens to perform in a rock band in his spare time)
- Daniela Schilling, a divorce mediator who’s new to Twitter but who “got” it quickly
- Tom Valenti, a lawyer, mediator, and international traveler
- Amy Martell, lawyer, judicial clerk and avid proponent of ADR in the Boston area
- Ann Begler, a mediator and organizational development consultant in Pittsburgh
- Pattie Porter, a conflict coach and workplace ADR consultant (who also makes a mean Texas barbecue brisket)
- Katri Kytöpuu, a mediation advisor in Finland who specializes in addressing school bullying
This is by no means a complete list of all the ADR practitioners, scholars, supporters, and students on Twitter, and I intend no slight to anyone whose name I didn’t include. If you’re a dispute resolution practitioner on Twitter, please post a comment to this post and provide your name and Twitter handle. Or, recommend an ADR professional, scholar, or student that you know on Twitter.
Of course if you’d like to follow me on Twitter, you can find me at @dianelevin.
