The Critical Role of a Leader to perform has never been greater. Both leaders and employees report working longer and harder to meet higher expectations, often with fewer resources. Today's employees want leaders they can trust-both in a difficult present and a change-filled future. We don't know precisely what those changes will be; we do know they will require focus, collaborative problem solving, and shared accountability. So, what does it take for employees to collaborate with leaders and accelerate productivity? In a word: "Trust."
