The phrase "iron fist in a velvet glove" can be defined as a person who has a gentle, sweet, or unassuming appearance or disposition, but who in reality is particularly severe, forceful, and uncompromising. The most effective people, the people who get opportunities are those who can lead with their iron fist covered in a velvet glove. 

Even President Theodore Roosevelt utilized this philosophy in his  foreign policy: “speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.”
