Correct Answer: 1
Rationale 1: Trust, a foundational element in a healthy organization, is interpersonal in nature, not built upon documents, systems, job expectations, or mechanical methods of feedback. Assurance that one is being heard by one’s leader is essential to trust.
Rationale 2: This is important, but not the best answer.
