Leaders are best able to trust those that ask them for help.

Nonjudgment is a trust skill necessary for asking for help. In doing this, a leader can form mutual trust. Without doing this, a leader will not develop the understanding that a report will ask for help when stuck, which will make it harder for them to issue projects that enable growth. Increasing the sense of status of another gives them the primary reward of increased connection.rB1
