  • #39 Workplace Philosophy, with Cristina DiGiacomo, industrial philosopher

    Management thinker, Charles Handy, loves the Greek Philosophers. So does Cristina DiGiacomo. IAOTP (International Association of Top Professionals) awarded Cristina Industrial Philosopher of the Year 2021.

    During Nina's conversation with Cristina we discuss how the ideas of Greek Philosophers, Aristotle, Plato, Epictetus, Socrates, underpin many wise sayings of today plus modern philosophers Emerson, James Allen, Buckminster Fuller.

    Reading philosophy is like taking a feather duster to parts of your brain you forgot was there.


    Cultivating wisdom at work helps a manager engage with their teams and makes them:

    ·        Adaptable

    ·        Resilient

    ·        Disciplined

    ·        Creative

    ·        Decisive

    Reading classic philosophy inspires the search for wisdom.



    Cristina DiGiacomo is an Industrial Philosopher™ who combines 20 years of management experience in large corporations with 10 years of practice in Philosophy, and a Masters of Science degree in Organizational Change Management to teach leaders and their teams philosophy so they can be wiser at work. Cristina is author of the book, Wise Up! At Work.
