When training dogs ‘Force no matter how concealed, produces resistance”


When Dwight D. Eisenhower quoted this I don’t think for a minute he was refereeing to dogs, but what similarities there are. Force, no matter how concealed, produces resistance.
“Leadership is a word and a concept that has been more argued than almost any other I know. I am not one of the desk-pounding types that likes to stick out his jaw and look like he is bossing the show. I would far rather get behind and, recognizing the frailties and the requirements of human nature, would rather try to persuade a man to go along because once I have persuaded him, he will stick. If I scare him, he will stay just as long as he is scared, and then he is gone.”
