Does anyone have any tips for how to teach a 2 year old to be gentle and not hit or throw stuff at people?

When my daughter hits I tell her "soft", then take her hand and either pat the person she was hitting or have her rub the person. It works with animals too. After a few times of saying and showing, he'll start doing it on his own when you say soft. My daughter doesn't really throw things, yet, so not sure if it work to say soft for that too.
