Abstract

Using a sample of 411 members and their respective leaders from 72 Taiwanese corporate teams, we conducted a cross-level study and found that 1) teammates' shared work values were positively related to team member performance and satisfaction with cooperation; 2) trustworthiness, or how a member was trusted by his or her teammates, mediated the relationship between shared work values and team member performance; and 3) trustfulness, or how a member trusted his or her teammates, mediated the relationship between shared work values and satisfaction with cooperation. Results provided support for the shared mental model theory and the directional nature of interpersonal trust.
