This paper presents a study of leadership using a method of computational modeling by exploiting the analysis of data and behaviors gathered in a human subject experiment. We incorporate some of the observed behaviors in agents' schemata and build an agent-based model. Analyzing the different interactions, we can examine under what conditions individuals may emerge as effective leaders.
