Invitational Leadership is a fresh and innovative model based on a single theoretical framework. 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. This insightful work is long overdue in an age of “might makes right,” and contains great wisdom in promoting solid values found in various democratic and spiritual organizations. Supervisors and coaches, CEO’s and shop stewards, managers and parents — anyone and everyone who deals with others, take notice.
This is a truly inspirational book in its invitation for all people to join together in a shared vision of promise and greatness.

A phrase has come into the Zeitgeist – calling people the “Trump of their field.” Elon Musk is the Trump of business. Many leaders still do not know how to react to President Trump; to his decision to control immigration; 3+% economic growth and, especially, to the absolutely justified desire to implement a pro-US policy.
Europe has been awakened from its somnolence by the vigor and determination with which US President Donald Trump has changed the face of America and indeed, the entire world. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, mainland Europe has been stuck in the old politics of the 20th century. The annihilation of the European Socialists in the European Parliament and the European Council (where they only count a handful of heads of state) is birthing a new European era.
Europe, like the rest of the world, needs Trump in order to re-learn how to do politics, instead of winding endless tales from which no one understands anything, and no one takes any firm decisions. The Trump of America must lead the world in uniting Western Civilization against an onslaught of weak, feeble centrists and leftists at home and abroad. Europe needs Trump in order to wake up from its zealous overconfidence in its capacity to assimilate millions of non-Europeans into its cultures.
The world also needs Trump and America to learn the value of the nation state and policies based on the community called the "nation."
Every nation in the world needs a president or prime minister like Donald Trump – pushing their nation towards its greater destiny.
Every nation needs presidents that puts their nation first and fights for the interests of those who voted for them!
Trump's World shows how Trump has bent the arc of modern history in the US and how other leaders will do the same across the world as popular sovereignists win the day.Learn More
