Expanding the Definitions of Intelligence and Leadership.
Psychologist and Professor of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education Howard Gardner. He's written a new book, Leading Minds: An Anatomy of Leadership, (Basic Books) in which he profiles a number of leaders, exploring the link between creativity and leadership. Gardner has written thirteen books, and is also a recipient of the MacArthur Prize Fellowship. He'll talk with Terry about his theory of multiple intelligence which was the subject of his 1983 book Frames of Mind. In the book he writes about the notions of intelligence not often valued in standard school curriculum: musical, spatial, bodily kinesthetic, interpersonal, and intrapersonal. Gardner is also Co-director of Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
