About the Book
To my knowledge, this is the first book ever written about Organisational Psychotherapy. Thanks for taking the time to have a look. This is a short book. And intentionally so. It’s not that Organisational Psychotherapy is a shallow domain. But this book just lays down the basics.
This book aims to inform three distinct groups of people:
- Senior managers and executives who might find advantage in hiring and engaging with an Organisational Psychotherapist.
- Folks who might have an interest in becoming Organisational Psychotherapists themselves, either within their organisations or as e.g. freelancers.
- Folks within organisations who might find themselves involved in some way in their organisation’s engagement with one or more organisational psychotherapists.
We’re all busy people, so I guess you may be curious, or even a little concerned, as to whether this book will provide a good return on the time you might spend reading it. I’ve tried to arrange things so that you can quickly answer that question.
I intend this book to be easy to understand, and to that end I’ve used as much plain English as I can muster. I guess some folks find the whole idea of Organisational Psychotherapy somewhat intimidating, and fear the ideas here will “go over their heads”. Let me reassure you that I’ve tried to make this book common-sensical, friendly and down-to-earth.
I like the honest, open, serious style
If you think the way we work together in organisations is a given then take it from me that (a) it is merely human-made convention and (b) it is, most often, dysfunctional. Bob Marshall … provides a method to help people in organisations reflect, gain insight and take action to change the way we work together. Put aside any fear you have about ‘therapy’ for it is no more than a means to help us improve our collective assumptions and, as a consequence, improve our achievement of purpose.
A Book That Gives Me Hope
This is part invitation, part love letter: The invitation is to join the scary yet exciting unfolding of Organisational Psychotherapy (OP). The love letter is about the meeting of human needs, and the interpersonal relationships we cultivate - these are what makes OP work and it's what makes the work work, too. OP puts the focus on empowering change from with within. The book speaks of a more humane existence - and it's a book that gives me hope for the wider adoption of the OP perspective.
Astounding Insight and Depth of Understanding
Bob’s insight and depth of understanding is astounding. I’d strongly recommend reading his new book!
A Travel Guide for your Journey
Bob's going to take you to places you won't want to go or don't believe exist. Trust him though, it's worth it.

I also have been following Bob’s ideas - and purchased without hesitation.
A Very Interesting and Unique Approach to Organisational Change
The book provides a very interesting perspective on organisational change and a unique approach of helping it to happen. Would be useful for both change agents and people within organisations undergoing change.
Inspiring and Revolutionary
I have found the concept of #OrganisationalPsychotherapy by @flowchainsensei a true inspiration for understanding and helping the organisations I work with become more effective and humane. His new book 'Hearts over Diamonds' is truly revolutionary.
Thought-provoking. I ❤️ it.
'Hearts over Diamonds' is so thought-provoking that it's taken two sittings to get through the Preface. Constant daydreaming coupled with furious notetaking. I ❤️ it.
