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 think!

• David is available to discuss his experience living and working in over 15 nations of our world.

• He'll talk about what it's like living in Hawai'i and what he's learning from this experience.

• He'll talk about some of the issues and problems facing American public education today.

• David can share hundreds of ideas for increasing the effectiveness of any group or team in the workplace, community, or at home in the family.

• "Multi-modal learning" is a core concept of multiple intelligences. David will explain what this is and how use it to improve your learning and your memory.

• Being a father, David can share things we as parents can do at home to nurture our children's full intelligence.

• David is willing to discuss any aspects of his personal journey which has led him from a cattle ranch in Wyoming to being a best-selling author of nine books and an internationally recognized speaker.
