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.
Gabriella Braun has been taking psychoanalysis out of the therapy room and into the staff room for over twenty years. In her book All That We Are 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.
Join Gabriella as she talks about the human dynamics of the workplace, how to better understand our own inner theatre, and how this knowledge can create better managers and leaders.
Please note this is an online event.
