A Financial Times 'Summer Book of 2022'
Longlisted for the CMI Management Book of the Year Award
Who do you bring with you to work?
Try as we might, we cannot leave part of ourselves under the pillow with our pyjamas when we go to work. We bring all that we are.
In this collection of stories, Gabriella Braun shares insights from over twenty years of taking psychoanalysis out of the therapy room and into the staff room. She shows us why a board loses the plot, nearly causes their company to collapse, and how they come through. We see the connection between a headteacher's professional and personal loss. We understand seemingly unfathomable behaviour - why a man lets his organisation push him around, a lawyer becomes paranoid, a team repeatedly creates scapegoats, and founders of a literary agency feud.
At a time when we are re-thinking the workplace, ALL THAT WE ARE shows that by taking human nature seriously, we can build more humane organisations where people and their work can thrive.
