Abstract and Keywords

In this chapter, we explore the rapid development of interpersonal trust—known as “swift trust”—within temporary systems and focus on our attention on the military context. We suggest that, within the leader–follower dyad, followers make swift trust decisions based on a series of appraisals regarding both static and dynamic factors about the leader. We suggest that certain leader behaviors and decision making—participative decision making, transformational leadership behaviors, and general positive attitudes—can accelerate followers’ making swift trust decisions about the leader. Implications for research are provided.

Keywords: Trust, swift trust, leader, follower
