Sample text

Avoid intentionally erratic or unpredictable behavior. Develop and maintain integrity between what you say and what you do. Communicate to the best of your ability. Communication is any form of behavior which results in the exchange of meaning. The whole person communicates. And there is limited if any motivation without communication.

Too often this is presented in a form which asks people to vote "yes" or "no" on the proposed change.

Which is the best model to use will depend very heavily on local conditions at the time that a serious planning effort is undertaken.
