Leadership Lessons from Howard Gardner

One has to live as an optimist.  Nothing will get better, if we don't try.  

Gandhi did more than anybody else to convey what it means to respect people, even if you disagree with him or her or them.

Stories are the universal lingua franca [i.e., bridge language].  The leader's challenge is to be Darwinian, namely, to create a story which can struggle with the stories that are extant and say this is a better story.
Howard Gardner is a psychologist and professor at Harvard University, who advanced the notion that intelligence is far more complex and wide-ranging than just one general ability (i.e., the g factor).  He published Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences in 1983.

Thank you for reading, and let me know what you think!
