We all fall into patterns in all aspects of our lives; and that includes developing patterns in the ways that we engage in conversations. While social media offer more and more new ways to engage, it’s not surprising that patterns emerge in online conversations, too. Baby Boomers, for example, are the most likely generation to open facebook daily, while a LinkedIn study tells us that 42% of Millennials listen to at least one podcast every week. It’s clear that how and where we engage online (or in person, for that matter), will have a big influence on whom we engage with.

Along with co-host, C.D. Saint, Amanda has been exploring the world of podcasting for conflict resolution professionals. Amanda and CD produce and host Overthinking Conflict – which we all highly recommend! Here, Amanda shares her top 7 podcast recommendations for folx looking for a different way to learn about conflict resolution topics.
