One of the most common leadership problems I have observed is the lack of transparency from the chain of command. Often times when things come up within an organization at higher levels being held accountable for your actions seems to be something that falls off. When the lower ranks see this and they know from previous incidents that if they would have done the same thing discipline would have been handled differently it destroys morale and the line level employees lose trust in the organization. If transparency and honesty were more prevalent within the organization there would be more trust built within the organization. Employees may not always agree with things but if they are being told the truth and not being deceived it will go a long way.
