NAOMI SHRAGAI – on The Man who Mistook his Job for his Life.
Why do happy children often end up as unhappy workers? What is the relationship between our professional present and our personal past? How do we feel about hierarchy and the person called boss? How do we measure success, our own or our colleagues’? How well do we navigate the complex emotional landscape of the workplace?
Naomi Shragai, who has written for The Times, The Guardian and Financial Times and been a stand-up comic, has more than thirty years’ experience as psychotherapist in both private practice and NHS hospitals.
