Erdem F, Ozen J. Cognitive and affective dimensions of trust in developing team performance. Team Performance Management: An International Journal. 2003;9(5/6):131-135.
In this study, the importance of a climate of trust in promoting teamwork is presented, and the findings of an empirical study of 50 work‐based teams are discussed. According to these findings, teams which show high levels of trust (both cognitive and affective dimensions of trust) perform better. As a result of these findings, it is strongly recommended that trust should be a primary value of the organisational culture, that behaviour which promotes trust and protection should be encouraged in teamwork, and that trustworthy behaviour should be treated as a measurement of performance for the purposes of employee appraisal.
