My Purpose for blogging: Where to we go from here?

Where to we go from here?

My primary purpose for this blog is to inform practitioners and participants in mediation, negotiations, other forms of alternative dispute resolution and risk management.

I want to provide a mostly systematic overview of the full range of dispute resolution options: risk management or the avoidance and minimization of conflicts, negotiation, mediation, arbitration.  I also want to demonstrate how to effectively use each option for each situation.  From time to time, the blog will delve into issues involving legal ethics and social media.

I want to have a dialog with you on these issues and thereby helping all of us to improve our skills and knowledge.
