This title was first published in 2000. Economic competitiveness depends on having the smartest workforce possible. Organizations who want to survive and grow need to be open to new ways of uncovering and developing their people’s abilities. Profiting from Multiple Intelligences in the Workplace turns Howard Gardner’s revolutionary theory of multiple intelligences into user-friendly tools for understanding and assessing success in everyone from CEOs to cleaners. It provides a complete system for: the examination of staff needs matching applicants and job specifications successful interviewing and induction effective supervision focused training and development. The results not only allow the identification of individual skills but also uncover the mosaic of skills needed for multiskilling, multitasking and efficient teamwork. No other book provides a method of translating the theory of multiple intelligences into workplace practice and, unlike other books which centre on only one intelligence (for example emotional intelligence), the inventories presented here work towards a balance between traditional skills, general competencies and social skills.
