Book of the month – February 2022

Book of the month – February 2022

The new book  All That We Are: Uncovering the Hidden Truths Behind Our Behaviour at Work by Gabriella Braun is described by Mike Brearley, President of the British Psychoanalytical Society, as a powerful, sensitive and timely book (that) reveals what really happens within and between people at work. The emotional life of individuals and teams is often underestimated, but Gabriella Braun’s insightful understanding demonstrates that we do indeed bring ‘all that we are’ to work. She shows that taking human nature seriously, including unconscious elements, makes all the difference to the health of our organisations and our lives at work. I wholeheartedly recommend this book.


On Friday 25th March Gabriella will be at the helm of our monthly ‘Meet the Author‘ event to facilitate reflection and conversation about this scrupulously perceptive book that does not shy away from using her own personal knowledge and professional experience from over 20 years of taking psychoanalysis out of the therapy room and into the staff room. In the book “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“. We would be delighted if you could join us.  Details available via this Eventbrite link.
