Abstract
This report represents the first draft of a paper describing the creation of scales to measure a) trust in teams and b) trust in a team leader in the context of army units. This work begins with an examination of the existing literature on the measurement of trust in others, trust in a leader and trust in teams, and the implications for measure development is reviewed. The scale development process for the trust in teams and trust in leader scales, including conceptual decisions is then described. The results of two studies exploring the psychometric properties of these scales also presented. We conclude with recommendations for further refinement.
