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.

About the Author

Bob Marshall
Bob Marshall

My name is Bob Marshall and these days I most often describe myself as an Organisational Psychotherapist. Which is to say, I bring psychotherapy techniques out of the therapy room and into the organisation as a whole. When trying to change the culture and thinking of a whole organisation, what better way than Organisational Psychotherapy?

In decades of experience working with technical businesses, I’ve come to realise that technical skills pale into insignificance beside our ability to nurture productive collaborative relationships. If you’re in an organisation that wants to improve things for the better, you may find Organisational Psychotherapy of appreciable benefit.

I have for the past eighteen years headed Falling Blossoms – the UK’s first Organisational Psychotherapy provider – serving organisations undertaking major transformation change in their search to become more humane, people-oriented and productive.

I’m the originator of Rightshifting and the creator of the Marshall Model (Dreyfus for the Organisation), as well as Prod•gnosisEmotioneering and FlowChain; the enterprise-wide approach to developing software-intensive products and services.
