You can get things done, at least short-term, by pushing hard. Why would you want to pull instead?
Consider the illustration Gen. Eisenhower shared with his officers.

How did they react?
As a leader, you have a responsibility to be truthful with those under your care.
This can be especially difficult when they don’t want to hear the truth.
You may get the response that Paul did in Galatians 4:16.
