Force to show initiative (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

drive

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'force' is the first definition.

(driving is a kind of forcing)

'initiative' is the second definition.

(thesaurus)

'to show' is the link.

(Other definitions for drive that I've seen before include "Trip in car - road to house", "Private road; impel", "Motivation, energy", "Go by car", "House approach", "Hit ball with force", "Diver (anag.)", "Energy - herd - private road", "Energy and persistence - in car?" and "Impetus; take car".)
