The Industrial Age play where we goad, manipulate, order, motivate, inspire, or threaten people to do what we want them to. Using influence, power, rank, talking first, talking more, or talking louder to bring people around to your way of thinking.

Coercion sounds like:

I need you to be a team player.

Everyone needs to get on board.

It’s time to fall in line.

We are ready to go, right?

The new play for leaders is Collaborate.
