Who do you bring with you to work?

Try as we might to avoid it, our private life comes to work with us every day. In a collection of stories from her professional and personal experience, Gabriella Braun shares insights from over twenty years of uncovering layers of emotional entanglements in the workplace. She reveals the full extent to which every organisation is affected by the personalities and psychological makeup of its leaders and staff, and what that means for our working lives.

Taking psychoanalysis out of the therapy room and into the staff room, ALL THAT WE ARE uncovers the hidden truths behind such cases as an addiction centre where staff are governed by choices they don't know they make; a board that loses the plot and nearly causes their company to collapse; and a meek man who feels powerless to express his anger at an impossible job.

By understanding the influence of our unconscious mind at work, Gabriella shows how we can improve our wellbeing and performance, form good relationships with colleagues, and build more humane working lives.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Such a compassionate and discerning book. This rich work weaves in Gabriella Braun's own intriguing journey and psychodynamic theory. It has the potential to make organisations and teams more thoughtful about why they struggle and deserves a wide audience -- Gwen Adshead, author of THE DEVIL YOU KNOW

This powerful, sensitive and timely book 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

-- Mike Brearley, former captain of England Cricket and President of the British Psychoanalytical Society
ALL THAT WE ARE is full of empathy and understanding, showing us that we cannot leave who we are behind when it comes to our working life. A sensitive and timely exploration into what is needed in order to create a more compassionate, positive and healthy workplace -- Fiona Scarlett, author of BOYS DON'T CRY
ALL THAT WE ARE is a fascinating examination of the unconscious human processes that operate in team working environments. Through a series of unflinching yet compassionate case studies, as well as reflections on her own experiences of analysis, Gabriella illustrates a wealth of knowledge and expertise, illuminating just how powerful the application of psychoanalytic techniques can be in our professional as well as personal lives. A stunning book and a must-read for anyone interested in psychology, our working lives, or simply what it means to be human -- Philippa East, author of LITTLE WHITE LIES and SAFE AND SOUND
