The word complaint carries such a negative connotation that complaints are by default automatically viewed as negative and disappointing.

Synopsis:

It doesn't take charisma or talent to become an inspirational leader, it takes a desire to learn and dedication to see it through. As Vince Lombari once said, "Great Leaders aren't born, they are made with hard work." An inspirational manager motivates his employees because he follows simple repeatable steps and follows them consistently. First of all, a manager needs to respect his team and let them know the importance of their work matters through his words and his actions. Secondly, an inspirational manager publicly acknowledges the contributions of each of his employees individually. Thirdly, he treats each individual as a valuable person who has goals and needs beyond his job. Any manager who follows these simple steps sincerely will inspire a more motivated and productive team.
