Chris Corrigan draws a good distinction between structure and control. Snippet:

One of the things I hear from many clients is a call for “structure” in conversations. This is a term in need of a definition and whenever I hear it I try to clarify what is meant. In a lot of cases, structure means having items laid out on an agenda and a clear sense that we will come to come agreement on them. “Structure” is often a synonym for “control.” I don’t have an issue with structure, but, in keeping with the previous post, control is more problematic.
