Abstract

The study of trust continues to increase in popularity and relevance in the twenty-first century. There is a growing awareness of the potential impact of trust on organizations and a greater level of interest concerning the dynamics of trust from both the academic and business communities. This paper considers fact-based aspects and emotional influences relative to the study of trust in organizations. Thoughtful attention is given to Aristotle's Rhetoric as it relates to inartistic proof and artistic proof in the search for new knowledge about trust. With a mutual quest for shared knowledge, both the academic and business communities will be better equipped to gain a clear understanding of the value, challenges, and dynamics of trust in organizations.
