What happens when we bring all of ourselves to work? That’s not something we do by choice. As my guest on this episode, Gabriella Braun, explains, we can’t leave part of ourselves at home when we go to work; we will naturally bring all that we are into the workplace.

That concept explains the title of Gabriella’s book ‘All That We Are: Uncovering the Hidden Truths Behind Our Behaviour at Work’. It’s an astonishing collection of stories in which she shares insights from over twenty years of taking psychoanalysis out of the therapy room and into the staff room.

As you’ll hear, in her work, she helps people to understand why employing humans means employing them in their entirety — the good and the bad. In the book and in our discussion, she talks about why a board loses the plot and nearly causes their company to collapse — spoiler alert: they survive — and why a lawyer becomes paranoid at work. And she makes some amazing revelations about her own life.
