    • General Tips
    • Assume good intent . Remind others of this simple trick.
    • Role model the behavior you wish others to use.
    • Practice and encourage active listening/reading.
    • Be explicit as possible in your communication.
    • Don't automatically assume understanding -- ask for clarification as needed.
    • Build trust by doing what you say you will do. Encourage others to do the same.
    • Encourage an environment that values trust. Trust is slow to be granted, easily taken away.
    • Use irony and humor with care as it does not always come across online as you might have intended. You can always use emoticons to clarify! ;-)
    • Think before you hit the button and a post goes up.
    • Approach every contribution with curiosity , expecting surprise and wonder
