Publications

This section includes many of the articles, papers and presentations written by Worklab principals. This represents our commitment to deepening and refining our work through reflection with clients, other consultants, and the academic community. In many instances there are hyperlinks to the documents themselves; if you would like copies of the others please feel free to contact us. We are also honored to offer the archive of writing about social and organizational dynamics of our former colleague Laurence J. Gould. Dr. Gould, who tragically died in May of 2010, was a leading figure in the field of socio-analysis and systems psychodynamics for more than four decades and leaves a rich legacy of scholarship and reflective consultation that is represented by these articles.
