Lack of trust sabotages team productivity by enabling interpersonal conflict, apathy, or cynicism. Not only does it make innovation impossible, it makes meeting ordinary expectations difficult.

When low trust exists between team members, there is a tremendous emotional cost, creating doubt, fear, anger, frustration, resentment, and resignation.
