One of the many barriers to building a great career can be your relationship with your boss, or perhaps those even higher up. Perhaps you never really get to mingle with your boss’s boss.

Because if they did they would share all their relationships with you.
So there are two important questions here: How do you know if your boss actually trusts you? What can you do to start building a trusted relationship if they don’t?
