Abstract
This report describes the creation of scales to measure trust in teams and trust in a team leader in the context of small military teams. This work is divided into four sections. The first section includes a review of existing literature on the measurement of trust in others, trust in a leader and trust in teams. From this, implications for future measures of trust in teams are outlined. The second section recounts the process of creating the trust in teams and trust in leader scales, including conceptual decisions that were made during the process of scale development. The third section describes the design and findings of a study conducted to explore the psychometric properties of the first iteration of these scales, and offers recommendations for further refinement. The fourth and final section describes a pilot study exploring the use of implicit measures of trust in teams and makes recommendations for future work.
