Everything I thought I needed to know about a “guarantee” I learned from Tommy Callahan. Tommy was the dimwitted hero in the movie Tommy Boy.
If you need a refresher or ignored the comedy all together, here is a quick refresher…
Tommy: Let's think about this for a sec,

Whether it be (and certainly not limited to) Ask, Bing, Google, or Yahoo, I’ll quickly admit that there is not a lack of viable search engines on the Web. One might think that there would be little room to improve upon established search engines. However, the rapid evolution and adoption of media and communication forms, especially social networking sites, provides a new opportunity to bridge the gap between established and emerging sources of information.… Continue

On the eve of the 12th
annual Cyberweek conference on Online Dispute Resolution (ODR), it is important to take some time and think about the necessity of trust—a critical component of the parent ADR recipe.

September’s webinar on Citizens & Collaboration by Joan Sabott offered an insightful look at the power of collaborative dialogue processes in highly contentious conflicts. Using her work on road sharing issues between motorists and cyclists, as well as local impacts to Colorado communities, she touched on five elements I feel are incredibly important in integrative processes for conflict resolution.
