Interview David Lazear
Background: I live in Hawai'i on the
island of Maui. I grew up on a cattle ranch in Wyoming. About 15 years
ago I encountered the research documenting that we all have Multiple
Intelligences–multiple ways we learn, acquire knowledge, and process
information–yes, multiple ways we are smart! I was so excited when I
read about this, because I've met so many people who feel they're
somehow not very intelligent because they didn't do great in school,
my own daughters included. Well, this research helped me realize that
school only values two of at least eight ways all of us are smart!
I felt this was so important that I've spent the last
15 years translating this research into something practical that
people can all use in their daily lives to help them gain know-how and
"smarts" to make significant changes in their lives. The good news is
we all already have Multiple Intelligences in us–we just need to learn
how to awaken them!
My passion for getting this message out has resulted in my writing a
number of books on how to use Multiple Intelligences to dramatically
expand creativity and our capacities for learning, how to use the
intelligences to become better problem-solvers in our daily lives, how
to increase our leadership skills, and how Multiple Intelligences can
help us create more satisfying personal relationships.
I travel all over the world conducting seminars and conferences which
have helped thousands of people realize they're smarter than they
