The relationship between two variables in a team - interpersonal trust and team performance – was examined. Working teams (N-26) comprising 181 persons (84 female, 97 male) of several organisations participated in this study. It was predicted that higher level of interpersonal trust among team members will lead to high team performance while lower interpersonal trust will lead a team to poor team performance resulting in a positive correlation between the given two variables. Pearson product-moment correlation (Pearsons r) method was used. Interpersonal trust among team members had a significant positive effect on overall team performance. This study suggested that working teams in organisations can achieve their goal more easily if team members are high in interpersonal trust compared to teams who lack it.
