Perhaps the situation is more complex than you can explain now, or perhaps you just need or want to break the rules, but either way, you have to get them to do it. They could revolt, or go over your head. Even in a military situation, you might face the AntiMutiny if you don't BringThemAround.

* In BenCounter's TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} story "Words of Blood", Athellenas orders his Black Templar {{Space Marine}}s repeated retreats. When Valerian objects to the dishonor, preferring a LastStand, Athellenas threatens him with not only execution, but [[DueToTheDead depriving him of honors due the dead]] and not fighting in the final battle at the end of the universe. After his obedience, and the enemy's [[EnemyCivilWar falling upon each other]], Athellenas asserts that first, he, being captain, did not need to explain, and then explains that victory was the most important thing -- and then learns that it had, indeed, been that crucial, because they were the only thing standing between this force and massacre.

* In the first HonorHarrington book, Honor's crew blames her for their assignment to the worst post in the fleet, and she has to win them back through sheer force of will. She eventually brings everyone around except for her First Officer ([[GreenEyedMonster who's jealous of her being given the command he wanted]]) and the Chief Medical Officer (who's just lazy and doesn't like Honor making her do any work).
