Manipulation is almost a dirty word in America. No one wants to feel manipulated to do anything, which is why when you lead people you cannot use manipulation as a way to get them to do work. In this post I will share why it is important to motivate people to do work instead of manipulating them.

Here’s a few questions to orient us what manipulation is and how it affects us:
- Have you ever been manipulated into doing something?
- How did that make you feel?:
- Did you want to do that activity again later?
- What were your thoughts about that person who manipulated you?
