Format: Hardcover
I. Bibliographical Entry

Riggio, D.E., Murphy, S.E., and Pirozzolo, F.J. Multiple Intelligences and Leadership. Mahwah, New Jersey: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, 2002.

II. Biographical Sketch of Author

Riggio, Murphy, and Pirozzolo are among the most well-known authors on the subject of Multiple Intelligences (MI) theory, and are both contributors and editors of this work. Originally developed by Howard Gardner, who authored Frames of Mind (1983), the theory posits that the prominent approach to intelligence assessment is flawed in that this approach only deals with cognitive intelligence but fails to deal with seven other intelligences such as musical intelligence and intrapersonal intelligence. While Gardner was the first to examine multiple intelligences, his work was in the field of psychology. Since then, many authors (including the aforementioned) have developed the theory in the field of education. The article authors themselves are among the most well-known in their respective fields. Riggio and Sternberg in the field of psychology and Fiedler and Bass in the field of leadership are often cited in scholarly work in these fields.

III. Summary of Contents

Multiple Intelligences and Leadership is a composition work of many scholarly articles dealing with the development of MI theory and its implications in the field of leadership. The structure of the book first examines the history and development of MI theory in an attempt to legitimize its use in leadership study. Then, models of leadership are examined in light of MI theory. Finally, application of MI theory in leadership positions allows the authors an opportunity to recommend MI as a viable theory to be used in leadership of various organizations in diverse cultures.
