Endogenous Leadership in Teams

Steffen Huck () and Pedro Rey-Biel ()

Journal of Institutional and Theoretical Economics (JITE), 2006, vol. 162, issue 2, 253-261

Abstract: We study the mechanics of leading by example in teams. Leadership is beneficial for the entire team when agents are conformists, i.e., dislike effort differentials. We also show how leadership can arise endogenously and discuss what type of leader benefits a team most.
