Action Papers

Action Papers are extended discussions of common problems faced by leaders, teams, and individuals.

Each Action Paper reviews a specific, detail-level issue, describing the usual causes, and then goes into detail on simple, concrete, practical implementation steps you can take to solve the problem for yourself, your team, and your organization.

I publish new Action Papers on an irregular basis. To receive notice when a new Paper is available, sign up to receive my monthly newsletter by clicking here for a sign-up form.

Action Papers are formatted for easy reading on your computer screen – and – yes – even on your mobile device. Presented in landscape layout instead of the typical portait orientation, they’re equally suited to printing (if you must!) since they use a sidebar-plus-main-content structure.
