The Slonimer Rebbe - Why Were The Talmidim Scared To Disobey Him?
The Nesivos Sholom Rav Sholom Noach Berezovsky, was from the great Mechanchim of the previous generation as his life and his Sefer Nesivos HaChinuch testify.  He was master Mechanech and beloved by all.  One time when he was a Rosh Yeshiva in Chabad, the Mashgiach asked him, how is it that all the boys that you have total control over the boys and they don't dare disobey your every command?

The Nesivos Sholom said that he loves every talmid with Ahavas HaNefesh, even the least desirable among them.  "I don't scream at them and I don't punish them" he said.  "I love them so much and the greatest punishment for them would be to lose my love.  That is something that they fear greatly, and therefore they behave."  His example should shed light on the world.  Yehi Zichro Boruch!
