Causing others to think and act is a fundamental responsibility of leadership.

Some choose to engage in those causative acts through manipulation, others through influence.

Consider this continuum (with sum corollary descriptors):

Manipulation <<<<< —– >>>>> Influence

Reductionist <<<<< —————— >>>>> Holistic

Fixed Mindset <<<<< —– >>>>> Growth Mindset

Secretive <<<<< ————- >>>>> Full Disclosure

Exclusive <<<<< ——————— >>>>> Inclusive

Egotism <<<<< —————– >>>>> Stewardship

The motive of the agent is at play along every level. As is the anticipated number of “winners” and “losers.”

You can probably guess when end of that continuum I prefer.
