I recently read an article and the author wrote the following:

"The Chazon Ish described the true lamdan as “someone who spends three hours preparing to deliver a five-minute shiur, and when he is done, the people who attended say, ‘What’s the big deal? What he said is so simple."

Where, if it's published, can I find the source for this?

You could always try asking the author what his source was. – WAF Jan 15 '14 at 3:07
Try looking in Orchos Drabbeinu maybe – sam Apr 20 '14 at 17:43
@sam I don't have that Sefer. If you do, could you check? – Bochur613 Apr 20 '14 at 20:09
