Abstract : This study reports the product-moment intercorrelations among seven criteria of emergent leadership. The subjects, graduate students in business, participated in a small group case discussion. The criteria of leadership were from non-participant observers who classified the action while the discussion was in progress and from the responses of the participants themselves to a sociometric questionnaire. The highest correlation between the observational and sociometric data was between Total Activity and the sociometric question ''Which member of the group stood out most definitely as the leader in the discussion.'' There was also found a tendency towards the differentiation of the task from the social-emotional leader. The principal finding was that the task leader acted the most, and that the person who acted the most was the task leader. (Author)
