Multiple Intelligences and Leadership
(9th annual Kravis-de Roulet Leadership conference proceedings)
Edited by Ronald. E. Riggio, Susan E. Murphy, and Francis J. Pirozzolo
Is high IQ a prerequisite for a leader? This volume brings together well-known researchers in the field of intelligence who are investigating the multiple domains or facets of intelligence. Traits such as social, emotional, and practical intelligence are also considered, including the role that multiple intelligences play in effective leadership.
In many ways these two fields, intelligence and leadership, have been moving along parallel lines. We are only beginning to understand the concept of multiple intelligences, and starting to explore its relationship to leadership. This line of research can be applied to the selection, training, and development of future leaders.
