The model shifts from emphasizing control and dominance to one that focuses on connectedness, cooperation, and communication. Based on sound philosophical and psychological assumptions, Invitational Leadership has been tested and successfully applied by leaders in numerous fields, including administration, business, nursing, dentistry, counseling, and other professions.
Invitational Leadership is the basis for the International Alliance for Invitational Education, a network of over a thousand professionals from all 50 states as well as Great Britain, Canada, China, South Africa, and countries throughout Central and South America. William Purkey and Betty Siegel have written much more than a guidebook to becoming a healthier and more effective leader; they proffer a radically profound, compelling argument that it is time for people in positions of authority to forge a new kind of relationship with others based on dialogue, respect, and collaboration.

Similar ebooks. Are there tried and true principles that are always certain to help a person grow? This book is loaded with savvy suggestions, tools and tactics for building your leadership bench. I am reading this required book as part of a curriculum in a Pastoral Training session. The book before this one, "Developing the Leader within You" was more readable at a better pace. For whatever reason, this book has started off slow and just went down hill from there. True, maybe it is just a mindset, and maybe I have to totally isolate myself from other distractions!
The time frame given us to read these books are only a month, which is not near enough time to put any of these ideas into practice.

John Maxwell, learned these lessons over a lifetime of being in management and being a Senior Pastor. I realize at some point I will have to put some or all of his words into action, but just not right now! As I am neither in a position or job to effectually put them to good use. On the brighter side, if you are looking to advance in the corporate structure, or to become part of the hierarchy of a religious organization, this is good reading. One person found this helpful.
