When people feel safe enough to raise their hands and say, “I made a mistake” or “I need some help.” The leader has created an environment where their people feel safe to be themselves.

If there's a lack of inherent trust and your company is more concerned about getting a doctor's note to justify your absence from work rather than asking about your health and what they can do for you, this clearly shows that you're only a commodity.
