Conflict Tipping

I had a lot of fun recording this episode with Dr Shannon Wheatley Hartman of the Interactivity Foundation, and i’m sure mediators, educators, and political scientists will all enjoy it.  Listen if you are interested in learning more about:

  • A collaborative approach to academia and the classroom
  • Dealing with group think
  • When NOT to collaborate
  • Embracing cultural humility
  • Community conversations and democracy as an aspirational idea
  • Avoiding both-sides-ism
