Everyone knows the old saying “You catch more flies with honey than you can vinegar”.  It is absolutely true, even though we aren’t fishing for flies.  We are fishing for good relationships.  Whether it is your family, friends, or employees, the old adage is true.

Don’t misunderstand, the vinegar approach will work in the short term because nobody likes negative consequences. However, for long term relationships the honey approach is always better.
