This book focuses on the theory and practice of understanding and transforming organizations with the goal to discover common ground between groups and individuals. Diamond presents a framework of reflective practice for organizational researchers, scholar-practitioner consultants, executives, managers, and workers in order to promote a more satisfying and humane work-life.

“A highly sophisticated attempt to bridge the difficult space between abstract theorizing and real life experiences. It succeeds brilliantly.”—Yiannis Gabriel, University of Bath

"Michael Diamond develops a multi-layered idea of organizational identity built on psychoanalytic object relations theory and self-psychology. This idea emphasizes the complex relationship between conscious and unconscious processes, true and false self, and conflicted needs for belonging and independence. This is a fine book that will be of value not only to students of organizations but to all of those struggling with their experiences working in organizational settings.”—David Levine, author of Psychoanalysis, Society, and the Inner World: On Embedded Meaning in Politics and Social Conflict
