The difference between punishments vs consequences

I think understanding the difference between punishments and consequences is very important not only in parenting but also in management and leadership in your work/business.

Punishments and consequences can be seen as very similar logically but have very different “flavours” and outcomes. One has anger and frustration attached to it. The other one doesn’t. 

So the key point is in the delivery. Punishment is delivered with anger or frustration.  Consequence is delivered in a more neutral or compassionate manner.
