A true Renaissance man, Dr. Peter Koestenbaum, author of The Heart of Business and The Philosophic Consultant, might well be considered the patron saint of networking. After over three decades of teaching and consulting on the role of philosophy in psychiatry and medicine, Peter made a radical career move: he decided it was time to leave the university and enter the “real world” of business. He has since consulted for some of the world’s largest businesses, and earned a deserved reputation as The Philosophic Consultant. In this interview, Dr. Koestenbaum talks about how networkers can make our businesses better—and in the process, make the world a better place.
