Where Has All The Leadership/Communication Gone (Part Two)?

Given good leadership at the top, however, much can be done, if leadership is considered as a force threading through the organisation as opposed to that type of headship that comes with position (which is sometimes mistaken as leadership. i.e. "pseudo-leadership").

Leadership and communication are force which have a powerful effect or influence, and should be differentiated from coercion, which forces change through pressure or necessity, by physical, moral or intellectual means. Coercion is ultimately destructive, as it does not engage peoples’ hearts or minds. One is constructive and leads to powerful construction and action. The other might change things incrementally or by fiat, but ultimately does not achieve the goals of stakeholders, which requires leadership and communication.
