Forewords are really important! Before people, especially the leaders, giving their command or order to instruct people do work on something, it is important to establish a relax and anxiety-free working environment. This is to make sure that the subordinates can work in a conducive and productive ambiance.
To illustrate this, Mr A states all the expectations in a strict and serious manner before he allows his workers to start their work. It's good to state what you want your workers to accomplish by the end of the day. However, your workers would be working anxiously and fearfully. Sometimes, this anxiety will impede a good result.
On the other hand, Mr B shares what he expects with his friends in a more subtle way. This will instantly boost the subordinates to give him a helping hand to get things done. Always, things can be done better in this way.
So, it's your choice whether you want to be Mr A or Mr B.

Who are we to judge?

What is your yardstick to decide what is good and what is bad? Who are we to decide one is good or bad? Can teachers and lecturers precisely evaluate and decide students' performance? Do teachers have the ultimate right to fail a student? How do you perceive those who always visits clubs and pubs?
Other than the acts that violate the clearly stated rules and regulations, it's really difficult to judge. Even there are clearly stated rules and regulations, there lawyers who will argue the worthiness of the rules and regulations. So, who has the ultimate power to judge? A question to be pondered upon.
