Institute of Public Administration (SAUDI ARABIA)
The multiple intelligences profile provides a new mental model of leadership abilities. Research shows that multiple forms of intelligences are not only possessed by effective leaders, but they are characteristics that make leaders effective in range of situation, while IQ has not been a good predictor of effective leadership a cross situation, a combination of cognitive, social and emotional intelligence and perhaps other domains of intelligence may do a better job of identifying successful leadership capacities. Gardner (1983)says when leader identify their intellectual capacities they gain an understanding of how to increase their learning, develop better skills, solve problems , work with others, or to be even more creative by actualizing these natural abilities. Also, by looking at one's own leadership potential through multiple intelligences lens, leaders can determine where their strengths and weaknesses lie.
Also, multiple intelligences theory has significant implications for leader effectiveness, leader selection and training/development. Mitigating overlooked talent, eliminating unfilled niches present within organization, and training the leaders with the right skill sets for the right role are challenges addressed by the theory of multiple intelligences. Gardner (1993).
This study centered on proposing Multiple Intelligences training program by adapting back ward design that offered several support services to government organizations leaders in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, this study also shed light on the description of “Back ward Design”, and principles Multiple Intelligences theory, the Implications of Multiple Intelligences Theory in leadership, Finally, recommendations for further research are proposed.
