From interns to CEOs, leadership skills are paramount, no matter if you're trying to get ahead or inspire employees.

One in five employees ranked trust as the most important factor for a boss-employee relationship, followed by respect and patience, according to data compiled by Malibu, Calif.'s Pepperdine University.

While having a strong relationship with employees bodes well with company culture, it also helps with productivity.

Of those slacking on the job, 60 percent stated they would work harder if their relationship with their boss improved.
