The Relationships among Asymmetry in Task Dependence, Perceived Helping Behavior, and Trust

Simon Dejong & G. S. Van Der Vegt

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
abstract Social relations analyses involving 132 working relationships among 60 individuals from 29 teams revealed that an increase in a team member’s task dependence on another team member was associated
with higher levels of perceived help from and interpersonal trust in that specific team member, provided the other member was highly task dependent on the focal member. The degree to which an actor
perceived a relationship with a partner to be helpful partially mediated the relationship between task dependence and trust. These findings highlight the importance of attending to asymmetries in task
dependence and provide valuable insights into mechanisms that can explain the development of trust in
organizational work teams.
