Regarding accommodation, I have found that one of the best ways to get what I want is to win others over to the cause--which means accommodating them to at least some degree, meeting them on their level and leading them to mine, bridging the gap, learning to communicate, and so on.
Personally, I know that I will not follow so-called leaders who do not listen to their teams--because if they have a vision, in the end, they will not have a team to carry it out. Several of the teams that I've led that have resulted in an execution of one of my visions--giving me what I want in the process--occurred because I was able to give others what they wanted as well.
