Abstract: This paper presents the first qualitative research study of the multiple intelligences of Chinese and Slovenian stakeholders at the Confucius Institute Ljubljana. Our research question is: “How can the integration of multiple intelligences into leadership development help in accomplishing the mission of CI LJ?” According to a contemporary leadership development literature review, sustainable leadership development – based on the theory of multiple intelligences – is more appropriate for social and environmental needs than a focused leader development. The findings demonstrate that individual differences influence cultural orientation and that management needs to integrate the individual, organisational, social and environmental developmental components through sustainable leadership development.
