Despite the pervasive practical need to understand how shared trust emerges in teams, most of the research has focused on consequences of mean levels of trust, thereby ignoring antecedents and dispersion in trust
among team members. This paper addresses this issue by advancing and testing a mid-range conceptual model of antecedents of trust congruence in teams. Integrating insights from the literature on dispersion-based
emergent group constructs, we propose that compositional (i.e., cultural diversity), structural (i.e., shared leadership) and interactional factors (i.e., virtual communication) interact and jointly influence team trust
congruence through the distinct causal mechanisms. Multi-wave survey data from 95 self-managing MBA teams confirmed our hypotheses regarding their joint impact, showing that team structure and interactions
help to overcome the negative impact of team composition on team trust congruence, while controlling for mean levels of trust. In addition, we also demonstrate the importance of team trust congruence for bottom-line
outcomes by providing meta-analytic evidence of its positive impact on team performance, above and beyond mean levels of trust (k = 6, N = 383).
