This book is about the informal or the ‘messier’ things that are habitually glossed over in organisational life but neverthe play a vital part in our individual and collective effectiveness. The sorts of things that sit outside the usual boundaries of corporate professionalism and lurk below the surface; for example, our feelings towards our colleagues, our ability to confront our own emotions and fears, whether we are able to accept the validity of what we are sensing, the way in which anxiety about ourselves drives our behaviour towards others. The intention behind these stories is to provide a home for the unspoken, to bring them to the surface and to recognise their significance. This is fuelled by a conviction: that seeing them is the first step to making a real difference in the workplace; bringing attention to what is really happening, rather than what we like to say is happening.
