An extract from a Presentation on Multiple Intelligences By 3Di Associates An Intelligent Business
How to develop an intelligent business What do we mean by intelligence? How do we manage intelligence in the workplace? How do we agree on a clear set of values for work? What virtues are we nurturing? Is imagination and creativity alive? How is a new perspective on intelligence economically viable? Where do our core objectives fit with the 3D intelligence model? Are we all enabled to be intelligent? What is the ultimate purpose of three dimensions of intelligence?
Intelligence is.................the capacity to acquire and apply knowledge.........the faculty of thought and reason.........superior powers of the mind.........the faculty of understanding (online dictionary) “Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us” – Bill Watterson, cartoonist
Really? Intelligence is................PARTLY about what was defined on the previous slide Intelligence is not just about the acquisition and use of knowledge. It is clearly far more complex than such a simple definition. Intelligence is about how we learn, how we adapt, how we consider the needs of ourselves and others. It is about being emotionally, socially and personally responsible, about how we develop a real understanding of ourselves and others. It is how we act instinctively and how we intuit. It is how we respond to our world and how we think, feel and imagine that often has nothing whatsoever to do with factual information.
